I recently heard a message referring to Rom. 6:6. The Pastor stated that we no longer posess our old nature, as we are a new creature (2 Cor.5:17). He instead used the term "flesh" as that whith which our "new nature" (spiritual)contends, in our struggle for obedience. As I would not argue the use of the term "flesh", I have always understood that our struggle is that of our "old nature" (synonemous with the flesh), to be against that of our "new nature"; and that the truth (of our "old man" having been crucified), to be presently "positional" in nature. I suppose what my actual question is: Has the "old nature" (old man) been literally eradicated, or does that take place with the glorification of the physical body?
