Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ so that you may belong to another, to Him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.  For while we were living in the flesh, our sinful passions, aroused by the law, were at work in our members to bear fruit for death.  But now, we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code.  (Romans 7.4-6)
