1. Can sin cause someone to do things they’d otherwise hate?

Yes: “(15) For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. (16) If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. (17) Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me” (Romans 7:15-17).



2. If a person is thinking in a carnal [fleshly] way, will they find how to do what is good?

No: “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 7:18).



3. When a person continues to do things they know they should not do, what is dwelling in them?

Sin: “(19) For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. (20) Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me” (Romans 7:19-20).



4. Is there a battle that occurs in man?

Yes: “(21) I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. (22) For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: (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 7:21-23).


5. What question did Paul ask in regard to the “wretched” man?

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



6. What contrast does this chapter conclude with?

The spiritual mind vs. the flesh: “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 7:25).
