In this message Paul begins to describe the battle that wages war inside of all believers. He explains that the law is good, but we are not.  You may find it odd, but the understanding that the law is good and the acute awareness that we are not righteous is a sign that we are Christians. In this message Pastor Dave also takes time to explain how we interpret Scripture and why it's important.
