How many of us had to be taught how to talk back to your parents?

How may of us had to be taught how to cheat on a test or our tax return?

How many of us had to be taught how to lie?

How many of us had to be taught how to be selfish?


Just as all of us don’t need to be taught how to sin, we must all learn the first step toward victory over this carnal heart is to understand the condition of our hearts. Paul put it this way:

Rom 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

Rom 7:15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

Rom 7:16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.

Rom 7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Rom 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

Rom 7:19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
