    In another thread DHK has offered a solid explanation of this passage in Rom7....several have mis-used this passage recently....along with several other basic passages....jn1:9,Rom5:12-19, 1cor15:22....these wrong ideas could have been avoided if mainline commentaries by proven men had been consulted...this is exactly what Spurgeon was getting at with this;

    The temptations of our times lie rather in empty pretensions to novelty of sentiment, than in a slavish following of accepted guides.



    A respectable acquaintance with the opinions of the giants of the past, might have saved many an erratic thinker from wild interpretations and outrageous inferences.
    {i have to check the archives...was Spurgeon a poster here on BB ?}:laugh:


    Usually, we have found the despisers of commentaries to be men who have no sort of acquaintance with them; in their case, it is the opposite of familiarity which has bred contempt.” ~ Charles Spurgeon
