We do everything we can to smell good:
shower
use deodorant
brush our teeth
use mouthwash
use cologne/perfume

Have you ever noticed what comes from your flesh? If you don’t cover it up, it stinks! Everything that comes from our flesh STINKS!

Paul writing about his flesh 25 years after he was saved!

Romans 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

Romans 7:15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

Romans 7:16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.

Romans 7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

Romans 7:19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

Romans 7:20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Romans 7:21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.

Romans 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

Romans 7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Romans 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Paul couldn’t get out of (escape from) his flesh any more than you or I! We’re stuck with our vile body until the Lord changes it!


Paul calls our flesh vile (vile bodies)


Philippians 3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.


There’s nothing good smelling about our flesh, but look at who we are in Christ!


2 Corinthians 2:14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
2 Corinthians 2:15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:

2 Corinthians 2:16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?

God will use us to manifest the savour of life wherever we go! He has chosen the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.


Preaching the gospel of the grace of God makes us smell good! :)

I have brought that up in conversations and soon I'm alone !! No, seriously I have said we are nasty creatures. Everything about us is odor producing and turns to filth. we bathe and shower daily, put on "de-odorizers", shampoos, soaps, toothpaste etc. and it only lasts hours. We are disgusting, that's why I love being clean and smelling good. I just had to get that out, now great thread/post !!

So, you're saying there aren't people here who don't go to the bathroom anymore? You spend your life trying to save yourself, hoping for a lower water bill, then this! I'm skeptical, though, suspect that next you'll claim we need to repent and believe the gospel of the Bible. (You're probably like those people who go around saying the Bible means what it says...)

It's always something like this, right about the time you make some progress, like blotting-out Romans 7 from all your Bibles with a black Sharpie. Tell you what, I'm getting to where I'm even losing faith that everything you read on the web is true.

The good news. Paul was no longer "wretched", "carnal", and sold under sin.


Romans 8:8
So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

Romans 8:9
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Who rescues us from this body of death of our flesh?
Jesus Christ our Lord!

"For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spiriit is life and peace." Romans 8:3-6

But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.Hi glorydaz~just my two cents:

I believe Paul is talking about the sin nature/the nature of sin that dwells in us all in Romans 7 when he writes, “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing:..."

Romans 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
Romans 7:15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
Romans 7:16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.

Romans 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

I do not believe it is the same thing as “in the flesh” of Romans 8 as that is clearly a positional distinction between the natural man being “in the flesh” which those who are in Christ are no longer as we are “in the Spirit” (Romans 8:9 KJV).

As to Philippians 4:13 KJV, Paul is talking about contentment even though he was afflicted and recognizing where his strength comes from (compare with 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 KJV).

Philippians 4:10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.
Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
Philippians 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Romans 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

As He further explains starting in the next verse, to set our minds on the Spirit. And in verse 13 to put to death the misdeeds of the body by the Spirit.

The Gospel is about us becoming what God desires by surrender to His gift of Jesus and His Spirit through the Cross and grace. We can do all things through Him. He wasn't lying!

2 Corinthians 2:16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?

God will use us to manifest the savour of life wherever we go! He has chosen the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.


Preaching the gospel of the grace of God makes us smell good!

If you wish to make it about anything other than the above, feel free to open your own thread.

All the references to smell are analogies, parables, com-parables.

Parables try to make one point - and the point I believe that is being made is that certain things are PLEASING to God and others not.
A sweet fragrance is pleasing. Being unclean is not.

Even the concept of being "unclean" is a simile/metaphor/parable.

We are not literally unclean. But something we have done is displeasing to God, like a dog having rolled in it.

I don't think there is anything literally wrong with the flesh.
Even with halitosis, BO God still loves us. They have switched off the smellovision in heaven.
