<005> Thesis:   Paul's concept of "death to The Sin" is rooted in the concept of significant "separations" involved with The Sin. Introduction:   In our last study we spent most of our time dealing with Paul's concept of "The Sin" as it involved two results. The first result is the eating of the fruit as it affected the physical body in that it set in motion the processes of gradual disintegration and, by that, introduced what Hebrews calls "bondage to the fear of death". In this manner, The Sin turned man's focus inward upon his own survival and installed in his soul "fear" as the motivation for choices. The second result is that the eating, as an act of what Paul calls "The Disbelief", opened the door to the dominant involvement of a foreign spirit which he calls "the spirit that is now working in the sons of The Disbelief". This evening we are going to pursue what Paul calls our "death" to those two results of The Sin. In order for "death" to be the major issue so that we no longer live in the sins that are produced by The Sin, we need to better understand what "death" actually is.
