A continuation of "Answering my own question"

I found proof, evidence in Romans chapter 8

“Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because throught Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life has set me free from the law of sin and death.

Romans 8 continues to explain that:

For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering.

Question: What did the Law wanted to do? To save Man from all sinful consequences but instead it failed because of “the sinful nature”.

Continued…

And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.

God condemns the sin in us. Not us. God doesn’t condemn us. God sees, clearly, and separates sin from us. Sin is a thing that inhabit in us. The unwanted parasite on a perfectly healthy plant. We are that plant. Besides the parasite, we are righteous. God sees, not the parasite, but the healthy me. God sent Jesus Christ to remove all that sin that may inhabit in us without our consent. Cos God says, its okay, we are righteous in Him. He judges us with a Pass. Green light.

That means a lot to me. That means, I can lift my head high for the wrongful thoughts I thought of just now. Thoughts that made me sleepless throughout the night. You know, it reminds me of something else. You know how some people try to comfort you by saying, “Come’on, its not your fault… you just have to forgive yourself. It’s a mistake, just let it go, it doesn’t mean you’re a bad person, just separate yourself from the mistake and move on…you’re still a good person… don’t be so hard on yourself…” And I’m sitting there thinking, wow, so innovative, separate yourself from your wrongdoing and still see yourself as good. But now i’m sitting here thinking, the Bible is where this idea of “separating the self from the sin” originates from AND isn’t it BETTER to have someone forgive you of your wrongdoings?! Someone as perfect and as BIG as our Heavenly Father? Someone who loves you so much-like our Heavenly Father? It gets even better. If you think there’s no such thing as a free meal, or a free forgivence, our Lord Jesus Christ has punished himself for that sin you just made! 2,000 years ago!

Romans 8:10
But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.

Romans 8:13-15
For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are [the children] of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of [children]ship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”

About Tongues:
Romans 8:26
We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.
