Carnal Man: 3) The Battle Within

Book of Romans

A Sermon on Romans 7:21-23

So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. (ESV)

The law of his daily experience; the inward man and the members; a different law; various interpretations of 'captivity'; an anguished cry of defeat.
