Dear Precious Friend,
Thank you for your wonderful article. I really do love it, and if I were you, I would make it into a small booklet. The only thing that I see that may need some clarification is when you say that sin is not eradicated. Sin in Romans 5-8 is personified. Sin is a person, just like righteousness is a person. Now, the person of sin is out in Romans 6:2-. Therefore the “body death” (Rom. 7:4; Col. 1:22: and Hebrews 10:10 & 14). Mr. Sin has been replaced by Mr. Righteousness. There has been an exchange of natures or persons. So, Satan or Mr. Sin is out and Christ is in. Then what is sin in Romans 7? It is Satan, or Mr. Sin on the outside of us making us think that we, as you so beautify say in your article, still alive with his nature and able to conquer our satanic temptations and sins by self-effort. Therefore, Mr. Sin’s power is the law. It is the carnal mind thinking. Romans 8 tells us there has been a change of minds too that is, the carnal mind for the mind of the Spirit.
I love you, and hope to see you sometime.
I thank you so much for your teaching! I listen to you each weekday at 8:00 am on WITA radio 1490 AM in Knoxville TN., and on the internet podcasts at night. I would love to have your chart presentation "What is Man" and any other charts or explanations of the charts that you might recommend. I want to truly understand this teaching. I will teach these things to others in the inner city and in nursing homes once I have begun to appropriate these truths for myself. I know the Holy Spirit will reveal these things to me. I'm reading Norman Grubb's "The Key to Everything" and that has been very helpful as well.
I would be very interested in anything you might recommend for me to read.
Thanks and God bless you!!!

I am writing to ask if I can purchase all of your/Sylvia Pearce Pamphlets that you show on the Amazon website. I am from the old school I guess. I love holding my reading material in my hand and not have to worry about having a charged battery on my iPad in order to read. Or for another reason, I feel like in the future there won't be any books to hold in our hands, due to technology. I love my books can you tell?
My experience in reading your borrowed books from my brother has given me a true hunger and sense of peace in just 3 weeks. I love My Brother very much, but due to family issues he and I had not spoken to each other in over 6 years. Low and behold 3 weeks ago he knocked on my door (much to my surprise) he was carrying a small pamphlet called "There is no such thing as an independent self".
Well, I must tell you in all my church years I have been looking for this kind of truth. I've ordered some of Norman Grubb's books and read 3 of those and will order more. I love your presentation of this life living in me.
My brother so humbly chose to bring me one of your pamphlets/books to tell me that God had put me in his heart to share what he had been trying to understand for 5 years of reading.
Thank you Lenice Gronda
