If you teach a dog to act like a human does that make it human? No, it doesn’t. It can walk on two legs, talk, and even use a fork and knife to eat but none the less it is no human. Likewise, if we teach our flesh to act like a Christian it doesn’t make us a Christian. The flesh was never meant to be refined. It was meant to be crucified so that we do more than just pretend to be righteous. We, by the work of His indwelling Spirit, actually become so.
