Romans 6:11

Romans 6:11 (see also Ephesians 2:1)
Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

If being dead in sin means that one cannot respond to God, then does being dead to sin mean that the Christian cannot respond to sin?























































Question:  So why don’t Calvinists use the “corpse” analogy in this instance of deadness, like they do elsewhere at Ephesians 2:1-2: “And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience”?

Answer:  They don’t use it because then they can’t use the Lazarus analogy.
