“Rabbi” Duncan on the believer’s sin-captivity

“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 7:23).

“A battle, and in that battle, even a captivity. Now you know in warfare, when a prisoner of war is taken, he is not a deserter. If we were at war with another country, as some years ago — God grant that it may be long ere it happens again — we were at war with France, and, if a British soldier were taken prisoner, and carried to a French prison, he would not grow a Frenchman. If it were proposed to him, he would say, ‘No; I will never cease to be a Briton, to fight for my Queen and country; and my heart is still with my country, my heart is still in the battlefield, and, if I can get off, my place still is the battlefield.’ Mark the difference, then, that there is between a prisoner of war and a deserter and traitor.”
