this is something that is unclear to me and doesn't make sense when people talk about the old man being dead as if the flesh is a non-issue. It is most certainly still otherwise why would daily crucifixion of the flesh be in scripture?
Paul said that he dies daily (1 Corinthians 15:31); every day he dies. If you are dead on a daily basis, how can the sin in a dead body manifest itself?
And those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires (Galatians 5:24).
This is how you come to understand Romans 7 and Romans 8.
