Some say there’s no real victory over sin on this side of heaven. And they cite Paul’s struggle in Romans 7 as evidence. If the Apostle Paul couldn’t say “no” to coveting, then how is there any real hope for us?
But the truth is that Romans 7 is not the normal Christian life by any stretch. No, it’s actually just the inevitable outcome for anyone – saved or lost – who puts themselves under the Law.
On top of that, here I present some compelling evidence that Paul’s Romans 7 story is actually his experience before he met Jesus Christ. This, all the more, bolsters the liberating truth that we indeed have genuine hope on this side of heaven.
