8:1 But now there is nothing to condemn those who belong to Anointed Jesus,

8:2 because the Spirit’s law of life from Anointed Jesus freed you from the law of Failure and Death.

8:3 For what the law found to be impossible, since it was weak on account of the flesh, God accomplished by sending his own Son in the resemblance of failing flesh. Thus he was a Failure Offering that condemned Failure in the flesh.

8:5 For those that are in accord with flesh are inclined to do what it wants, but those who are in accord with spirit do what is spiritual.

8:6 For the perspective of the flesh is death, but the perspective of the spirit is life and peace.

8:7 That’s because the perspective of the flesh is hostile to God since it is not under God’s law, and in fact is incapable of being under it.

8:9 You, on the other hand, are not of the flesh but of spirit— if the Spirit of God has taken up residence in you. Anyone who does not have the Anointed does not belong to him.

8:10 But if you have the Anointed, the body is a rotting corpse because of failure, yet the spirit is alive because of justice.
