The prodigal - an animation
I am nearly at the end of coming to a conclusion about whether the 'I' in Romans 7 is the regenerate or unregenerate. I need to work out my motivations. There is much in me that hopes that I will find that this idea of being imprisoned to sin, just does not bear out that life in the Spirit which we know from Romans 8. I also have to admit my predisposition to want to disagree with a kind of Lutheran, Calvin, reformed theology because this whole depravity thing does not sit happily with my experience of life. I am also aware that my views about the reformed position are probably less nuanced than they should be. I agree fundamentally with much reformed theology. I am, however, finding Witherington more persuasive than Packer. Perhaps the prodigal son story illustrates afterall that is is all a lot more nuanced again than a simple case of before and after Christ.
Oh well, back to the books, where the waffle has to be more carefully organised and supported with reading.
