There are some Christians who do know that the Believer has a “sin nature.” Because of that, they use such as an excuse to sin and keep sinning. In other words, they say, “I have a “sin nature,” so I can’t help but sin.” Most fall back on the Verse written by the Apostle Paul, “For that which I do, I allow (understand) not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I” (Rom. 7:15).
