When describing the problems of the law, under which neo-Judaism in that region of Little Asia wanted Christians to be subject, Paul is not saying that the 2nd coming of Christ is the solution. He means the Gospel event, Christ as He now is, and for the believer to be/dwell "in Christ" and enjoy the freedom and power of that.

The 2P2P kids here think any verb that has the word 'coming' in it, or really, anything that mentions a resolved state is FUTURE as in our 21st century future. When compared to what "in Christ" meant to Paul, doing so is Christ-less if not anti-Christ.

It is amazing what you can turn the Bible into when you don't have its background.

It would be nice if you'd post the passage you are referring to....just once.

It is amazing what you can turn the Bible into when you rely on commentaries over the Biblical text.
