Found this in another forum I'm a member of.
Wal, the first paragraph: "The inward man cannot sin..." is a misinterpretation of the scriptures cited. They don't mean that at all. II Cor 4:16 can be interpreted as meaning our fleshly bodies have aches and pains and infirmities and eventually will die. (As mine does). It can also refer to physical harm from persecution, in the midst of which our spirit is sustained and refreshed.
I John 3:9 simply means that believers do not make sin the practice of their lives.
It is true that God has punished all sin and will punish all sin. He punished his Son for the sins of believers. Unbelievers will pay the penalty for their own sins.
If one holds to a general atonement, the price has still been paid.
Thus it is true that no sin goes unpunished, regardless of what you believe about the extent of the atonement.
