    This could go several ways in the Greek.
    Because some won't believe the truth.
    They would be the ones who want scriptural permission to keep offending God.
    When they see of hear of a way to obey Him, they recoil at the prospect of their own doom.

    I'll wait for your response before adding more.
    If you were in the Spirit you wouldn" t need to ask what I think.
    If any man walk in the Spirit he does not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
    You await my response because you are in doubt.

    (And one could take that several ways as well.)
    I guess I cannot argue with that

    That is one way of looking at it.

    I'm just trying to get you to openly say that you reject obedience to God.
    Or, preferably, that you do NOT commit sin.

    If any man walk in the Spirit he does not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

    I am in doubt, as your first post was very anti-obedience to God.

    It is written..."For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow," (Heb 4:12)

    Some walk in the Spirit, and some walk in the joints and marrow-flesh.

    The verses "we" hash are sometimes very condemning to those walking in the flesh but pretending to serve God. And they will do almost anything to cover their...posteriors.

    No fountain can yield salt water and fresh.
    Thereby we know that a man in doubt does not manifest the truth and that a man manifests the truth only when he walks by the faith of Jesus.

    This could go several ways in the Greek.
    That men retranslate what is written of God in plain English proves they are in doubt.
    A double minded man cannot receive the truth from God.
    If any man lack wisdom let him ask of God, that gives to all
    men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him.

    Doubters never come to a knowledge of the truth and cannot reconcile themselves to the truth.
    But why does a man doubt what is written of God?
    It is because the truth is against the wisdoms of man and the carnal mind is at emnity with God.

    You mean we would all be mind readers?

    Plain English? Aren't you a King James Only proponent?
