But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. Romans 7:17

If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. Romans 7:16

This verse is an obvious truth.

Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful. Romans 7:13

In response to the previous verses, particularly the logic which follows from 8-12, another rhetorical question is now proposed.… Read the rest
