How do you view this verse; 1Peter 2:24 (pick your own version)


1Peter 2:24 has a phrase indicating we are one of these to sin. "Dead to". "asleep to". "sin no more" without reference to asleep or dead to sins. I think it is clear this is not talking about a repentance but something else. My look into Hebrew and Greek analysis leads to more confusion. My understanding right now is that it means sin does not effect us. Which would indicate that though we may sin it does not block us from God. I would enjoy hearing others on this.

    That is cool Paul. Just thought about it, I cannot remember ever sinning while I was praying. Sin is a degree separation. Yet through this the separation is only on our end.

    Well said Tim. Thank you. Perhaps man is just fallible enough to sin no matter what. But our close connection with God not being broken, gives us the juice to keep trying to be in His will, through hope. The grace is final, the journey is infinite.

    Could you help me out with the meaning of "dead to transgressing it"? Means that they will not anymore or does it mean that it does not matter if they do?
