This verse has to be taken in conjunction with the preceding verse to clearly grasp what Paul is saying – “For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.”

“Knowing this” is a statement of surety.… Read the rest

Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Romans 6:2

Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?” Paul’s answer is translated variously as “God forbid!”, “By no means!”, “Of course not!”, “May it never be!”, “Absolutely not!”, “That’s unthinkable!”, “Far be the thought!”, “No indeed!”, “Let it not be!”, etc.… Read the rest
