If you accuse me, a new creation son of God, of being prideful, deceptive, covetous or arrogant, then I am not who you think I am and you cannot help me. On the other hand, if you accuse me, a new creation son of God, of being struggled with flesh-born pride, deception, covetousness and arrogance, then you've got it right and you can help me. The former misidentifies the source of the problem and only frustrates me, while the latter knows and prefers the new creation me, being fouled up by the flesh, which is not me. Make the distinction and you can help me. . .and a lot of other people, too.
