Indeed, I am convinced that oneof the primary reasons why the traditional view became traditional is becauseRomans 7:14-25 has been so often read out of its context. The ironyis that while chapters 6 and 8 do describe Christian experience, whereas7:14-25 does not, it is 7:14-25 that has been handed down as the normativeChristian experience, and chapters 6 and 8 have been relegated to the levelof "positional" truth (i.e., something true in God's cosmic account bookbut definitely not true down here on earth). The tragedy is thatthe wonderfully liberating news of chapters 6 and 8 has been overshadowedby the bleak picture of helplessness that has come out of the misunderstandingof 7:14-25, and the church is definitely poorer for it.

my citations of the thoughts of Lloyd-Jonesand Käsemann concerning this view in part one above). Of course,the Jews themselves are not thinking this way any more than did Paul thinkthis way before he trusted Christ. His description in 7:14-25 isnot a psychological depiction of the agony the Jew feels while trying toobey the law; if it were, the entire Jewish nation would have been rushingto faith in Christ for relief from their struggle! Paul's descriptionis more pointedly the Christian awareness of the inability of humanityapart from God to do what is good, which, in the final analysis, wouldbe to come to Christ on our own and by our own efforts. The purposeof the law is to lead people to Christ for justification (cf.

Sorry, this position has been filled.

Galatians3:23- 24), and the ultimate irony and tragedy of the power of sin is itsleading people to look to their own "lawfulness" for justification instead. It is much like confusing a highway exit sign that says "RICHMOND NEXT3 EXITS" with the city itself; the sign points to the destination, butit is by no means itself the destination, and to pull to a stop and chainoneself to the sign is in fact to miss the destination. And, Paulwould say, the ultimate tragedy is that the people who have chained themselvesto the sign (and who are thereby blocking the road for others) aren't evenaware that they have missed the whole point of the journey, which is themain reason why he grieves so earnestly for his fellow Jews in 9:1 andwishes that somehow he could take their place so that they might know thejustification which God had always intended for them.
