Rom 7 - This Body of Death
Feb 16, 2014
We look at two more of the thirteen uses of the word "body" found here in Romans chapter seven, verses 4 and 24. The Collective Body View interprets both of these references to "body" as being collective. However, we show from the context that a collective application of these two texts is absurd, and makes total nonsense out of Paul's flow of thought here in Romans 7. All of the moral, ethical, and spiritual exhortations that Paul expresses here, must be connected to the individual saints, and NOT to a collective body. Otherwise, it would strip away all the motivation for individual saints to mortify their sinful lifestyle and pursue after sanctification of their bodies. That implication alone should be cause for pause before blindly accepting the collective body view.
