But Tuc---is it not possible that you did not have victory because you were not obeying?Nobody can be obedient for us. That is our part. It is too simple to just say "I am unable to obey therefore I will not try." We CAN obey and we ARE able. Otherwise we would not have been commanded to do so. Of course no one obeys perfectly all the time. The issue is whether we are endeavoring to do so. I suspect there are great numbers of Christians who say they are endeavoing to obey but if they were under cross examination we would find that they could really care less about obeying. They like the IDEA of obeying without trying to do so. It is at this point that their conversion must be questioned.
