Romans 6:5-7

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 For if we become united with him in the likeness of his death, we will certainly also be united in the likeness of his resurrection. [The Romans had died on the inward cross of self-denial, to be free of sin; and they are resurrected, (raised), with Christ to become an entirely new creature.]

 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified that the body of sin might be destroyed, so that we no longer be slaves to sin. [Christendom, with no knowledge of how to carry a cross, presumes that they have been crucified with Christ by imputation, which is make-believe Christianity. You must mortify your sinful nature on the inward cross of self denial so that you are freed of sin.]

 7 For he who is dead [having crucified their lusts and affections on the inward cross of self-denial], is freed from sin. [But if you are still sinning, you are not freed from sin: "Truly, Truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin." John 8:34.]
