<047> Thesis:   One of man's greatest needs is to "see" sin in its true essence. Introduction:   Our studies of the previous paragraph were introduced by Paul's first question: Is the Law sinful? The answer was an absolute denial, but it did contain a concept that gives rise to Paul's second question: Did the "good" Law become death to him? The reason for this question seems apparent. In the previous paragraph Paul declared that the holy "Law", in the form of the holy, righteous, and good commandment, became an instrument in the hands of "The Sin" to bring Paul to death. This almost automatically raises the question before us: If the "good" commandment was useful to "The Sin" as an instrument of death to Paul, does that mean that "that which is good" became "death" to Paul?
