Rom 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man (palaios) is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
Palaios “an old man according to age,” is defined as a toothless, 150 year old, cane walking, IV sucking, decrepit, dying, nursing home man.
He is also the cruelest of beings. He is a slave trader, and a slave master.
His slaves are all the men and women of this world, no matter what religion, color or age.
This old man is a sin producing engine. He keeps humans captured and blinded by releasing continual sin into them.
He knows that the only one who can kill him is Christ and His cross. Thus he deceives people into hating Christ.
One day, it will be too late, and along with this toothless man, many will go to where there is ironically the gnashing of teeth.
He has deceived humanity so that it spends trillions of dollars to keep him alive, beautify, exalt, cosmeticized and protect him. His only purpose was to be killed by the cross. Yet people would rather reject Christ and continue to keep this dude alive.
The old man is the sinful nature which every human being has. Only Christ inside the human can destroy him.
Yet mankind will do anything to keep him alive and well, before coming to Christ.
Ah, the price of keeping sin is in the trillions, and yet people will pay it forward until Christ comes back and promotes good politics.
The cost of sin is the crux of our national debt.
The way out of this financial mess is repentance.
But for those who want to get rid of this decrepit and evil man, Christ is always available.
But for many others the love of this decrepit and evil dude will take them to the wrong side of the grave and in not so nice of a place the humans’ eye will finally be opened and they will wonder why they loved the nursing home and the nursing home man.
