Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
for we know that our old self was crucified with him, to do away with our sinful body, so that we might not be enslaved to sin any longer,
for if you live under the control of the physical you will die, but if, by means of the Spirit, you put the body's doings to death, you will live.
Those who belong to Jesus the Christ have crucified the physical nature with its propensities and cravings.
But immorality or any form of vice or greed must not be so much as mentioned among you; that would not be becoming in God's people.
and you must not offer the parts of your bodies to sin as the instruments of wrong, but offer yourselves to God as men brought back from death to life, and offer the parts of your bodies to him as instruments of uprightness.
For when we were living mere physical lives the sinful passions, awakened by the Law, operated through the organs of our bodies to make us bear fruit for death.
What causes wars and fights among you? Is it not your cravings, which are at war within your bodies?
Then what shall we conclude? That the Law is sin? Certainly not! Yet, if it had not been for the Law, I should never have learned what sin was; I should not have known what it was to covet if the Law had not said, "You must not covet."
1 Corinthians 10:6
Now these things happened to warn us, so that we should not long for what is evil as they did.
for they have become callous, and abandoned themselves to sensuality, greedily practicing every kind of vice.
1 Peter 2:11
Dear friends, I beg you, as aliens and exiles here, not to indulge the physical cravings that are at war with the soul.
