We disagree on this as well. Man's spirit is what controls all that he does.
This may simply a matter of semantics.
Thank God we have the Spirit of God, now.
Enticement and overcome are not the same. I don't make the two equal. Not sure what in my post indicated they were. To be enticed does not mean one is overcome with the enticement. Enticement is not the point at which one has given in.
You wrote..."One must be drawn away and enticed of their own lust by evil (overcome) before they can sin, "
It seems like you implied an equality between "enticement" and "overcome" here.
Had you omitted the word "overcome", we could agree.
The "results" of being drawn away and enticed might end up in sin, (overcome), but not if you refuse the bait.
I see what you mean about the statement now and appreciate the feedback. I can see how that looks equal, now that I read it once again.
Cool.
I think we are on the same train, but in different cars.
LOL
I wish we could agree on water baptism...
