Paul says in Romans 6th chapter, verses 11 and 12, that a few think more of the sins they still have.(verse 12).than they do of being alive in God.

How can you be alive in or with God if sin still exists in you? You can't! That's why in Christ.(Romans 6:8,11).all that's bad for you has been taken away, taken out of the picture entirely. 

Some people are still connected to a Christianity involving 'motivation by sin'; that is "I have sin in my life so I need to study, pray, go to church, do good works and fellowship to get off sinning". They are in effect 'obeying sin'.(Romans 6:12,20), as sin therefor is the dominant concern of the mind, so things like this are thought: 'I must not sin', 'I must become pure', 'I must fellowship more', etc., the impetus for these thoughts being 'sin'.

Sin hurts, so why think about it? Such is the type of Christianity where those in it see that they must somehow get rid of that which He already has removed. These are the ones who appear detached from the vibrant life in Christ. Sincere and dedicated as they may be, they have been hoodwinked. They have been taken a ways down the river of no return. They are dying unto sin constantly, because they have just not been taught what Christ was all about:.Romans 6:10 "For in that he died, he died unto sin once, but in that he lives, he lives unto God.".And so should we: 2Corinthians 5:15.

Some live with feelings that almost their every thought and deed is a reason for God to reject them:.Romans 14:22.
   So, sin is still alive, to them, but they are those who are concerned about what is going on in their lives.
   They are concerned about what's happening to them, even though they may be still yielding themselves as."instruments of unrighteousness":.Romans 6:13.
   They are still allowing sin to have dominion as a motivating factor toward righteousness:.Romans 6:14.
   But, they are sincere and because of that, are on the pathway toward greater things:.1Corinthians 2:9. They are still experiencing life at the level which includes the good and the bad.

Some men and women, especially guilty feeling and often religious people, think more about how to stop sinning in order to be right with God, than they do living freely from the heart as the Infinite One intends for them.(Romans 8:2), not realizing that.Emmanuel has made them right.with God and the Great Infinite Intelligence of the universe will never reject them,.ever:.Hebrews 13:5 ".....for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you."

One may leave off from that, but it's one's own choice. The Creator never overrides one's choices.

Humans need to come to see that the heart is not just a physical organ, but has spiritual functioning, that of wisdom and feeling, a feeling that is more of an intuition; not an emotional feeling, for emotions follow thought. And what is an emotion but your feeling.

If Emmanuel has made one right with God, why focus upon anything that tells a person that they are still not quite good enough, still a sinner, needing to 'root out sin' and.get right with God?, tossing out the gift.(Romans 5:17).that has been given you, preferring instead to live by one's own righteousness.

Spiritual persons believing like this, have been bewitched into a 'saved and then please God by works' philosophy, another doctrine of the dark side, a doctrin of the devil submerging and bypassing works of one's heart.

Why join those believing the 'twice dead' philosophy, dead to sin once and then convinced still alive to it and must work to keep it dead:.Jude 1:12,16-20.

In Romans 6:15 Paul says 'We should not be thinking this way because we are no longer under the law, meaning here the tenets of the Mosaic Law. We should no longer be "after the law" or 'a product of its influence':.Romans 8:5; 10:5

The law was there to show us sin.(Romans 7:7), but not how to get close to Him. Now we are dead to the lawkeeping to become righteour.(Romans 7:1-6,8), instead living by grace

In Romans 6:16 Paul is saying 'Don't you understand that if you know.(Romans 10:2-4).that you are righteous, you are approved of God and if you think that you are unrighteous, then worthy of death?' 

And by thinking like this, it is just the same as if Christ was not in your hearts.(Romans 8:6-8).and you are making provision for the flesh to again get yourself right with God in case you may sin:.Romans 13:14. Whosoever figures he is a sinner has some law to measure himself by and thus will be ashamed, but not so with those of faith:.Romans 8:9-11

Romans 12:2 says 'do not let life dictate to you what you should think of yourself. Instead, know what is the truth about you, that you are in the God family thanks to Christ and can be nothing else but holy, righteous and perfect'. 

In Romans 6:17,18 Paul is saying 'Obey from the heart the truth of what you are in God now'.
   Romans 7:5 says that we are no longer in the flesh.(if we are in the Spirit and we are if Christ's nature of love is in us).if the law.(the law that said you are a sinner because...).is done away:.Romans 7:6

Paul in Romans 7:10 says in essence, that 'one would have thought that the commandments would have given life, but they brought death'. 

In Romans 7:12,13 Paul says the law was holy as it came from God, but God had designed it to show man that he could never be right with God without something greater, Christ. Then he would have the same consciousness of the Creator. Come to comprehend what Christ is

Romans 7:14 says that the law was spiritual; God made it, but God also made carnal man:.Romans 8:20

So the law was designed to show man that he needed something greater than the law to be righteous in God's eyes and receive all the blessings that God wanted man to have. 

Paul calls the law good:.Romans 7:16. But mixing it with man was not good. So what good was it for man? Not good! Not good in that it was useless for God's ultimate purpose for man. Not good in that it brought man nothing but death. Not good in that it could not take away sin.(only covered it). Not good in that it could not change the heart of man. It was good for one thing; that of being a law designed by God for a specific purpose, a purpose that pointed to something greater, Christ. It was designed by God to be put away and be replaced by the much greater good things that.were to come:.Hebrews 9:11.
