Apostle Paul
  Is Justified From Sin and Made Free of Sin

    There are two types of teachings, right acts, them that justify us form sin and them that make us free of sin, both are the grace of God. Romans chapter 6, is one of the most important chapters, discourses in the New Testament, it teaches us a combination of two teachings, "justified from sin" and the concept of "being made free from sin". Paul begins to exhort, they are not to continue in sin any more, expecting some other form of Grace. Paul directs them immediately to grace, to their baptism (immersion,water), writes we were baptized (immersed, water), into his death, buried (as if we entered the tomb of Christ under the water) with Jesus unto death, knowing our old man was crucified (blood shed) with Jesus (place in his crucified body). Concludes with, "he that died with Jesus (this way), is justified from sin". This is the only place where the phrase is written in the New testament, "is justified from sin" speaking what happens in baptism (immersion, water). Paul while writing this, adds the expectation, exhortation, we are to walk in newness of life, as Jesus died to sin once, we are to count ourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ, let not sin reign in us. Paul thank God they were delivered from sin, by following the form of teaching given them (teachings of Christ and his apostles how to overcome types of sins), being made free of sin. 

Romans 5:20: Moreover the law entered, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: 21: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness (equity (just, right) (of character or act) just character, right act, acts, steps) unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:
1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2 God forbid. We who died to sin, how shall we any longer live therein?
3 Or are ye ignorant that all we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
We were buried therefore with him through baptism unto death: that like as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life.

Paul's harmonizing in Col 2:12 having been buried with him in baptism, wherein ye were also raised with him through faith (persusasion) in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.

5 For if we have become united with [him] in the likeness of his death, we shall be also [in the likeness] of his resurrection;
knowing this, that our old man was crucified with [him], that the body of sin might be done away, that so we should no longer be in bondage to sin;

Paul's harmonizing in Col 2:14 having blotted out the bond written in ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us: and he hath taken it out that way, nailing it to the cross;

for he that hath died is justified from sin. (one of the most important verses in the new testament, revealing those who were baptized, died with Christ, justified from sin)
8 But if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him;
9 knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death no more hath dominion over him.
10 For the death that he died, he died unto sin once: but the life that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
11 Even so reckon ye also yourselves to be dead unto sin, but alive unto God in Christ Jesus.

    Paul says himself and these Romans, all we who were
immersed (water), were immersed into his death, buried with Jesus in the likeness of his death. Knowing this, our old man was crucified (death, died, shed blood) with Christ, for he that hath died, is justified (just, innocent, righteous) from sin.

Romans 6:7 for he that hath died is justified from sin. (one of the most important verses in the new testament, revealing those who were baptized, died with Christ, justified from sin)

    The King James version Bible, in Rom 6:7 have used the word "freed', however the the Strong's concordance number is #1344:
  • Strongs Concordance #1344 (show or regard) just or innocent, justify, be righteous.
  • 37 times #1344 is used in the NT it's render just (show or regard) just or innocent, justify, be righteous.
   KJV Roms 6:7 they rendered it as freed (mistranslating the word). In other versions you will find the correct translation "justified".
  • American Standard Version, For he that hath died is justified from sin.
  • Darby's english translation, For he that has died is justified from sin.
  • Douay Rheims, For he that is dead is justified from sin.
  • Greek interlinear by Alfred Marshall, also has the word justified, the word Paul did pen.
    Everyone should be knowledgeable of this particular mistranslation in the KJV, because its very assuring to know the word Paul by the Holy Spirit did penned "justified". Paul wanted everyone to know when exactly one is justified from sin, at the moment of their immersion (water). If you have been justified from sin, you can conclude as a result, Paul further writes expectations, exhortations you are to be freed from sin, however to remove Paul's penned word justified, and place the word "freed" would be extremely down playing, denying Paul's use of the word justified, and as many have done denying the justification from sin, which happens at the moment of immersion.
    Paul could of used the word "freed" if that was all he intended, instead he used the particular word justified. To give men assurance of how God's grace (an unmeritorious provision of righteousness) abound exceedingly, reign through righteousness, all we who were immersed into death, hath died, is justified from sin. No other grace will abound if they continued to sin. This grace (unmerited provision of righteousness) in the form of water immersion, justified them from sin and suppose to result, in not sinning anymore.

Dead Unto Sin, Alive unto God in Christ

    Paul commands to count yourself by immersion (water), a spiritual resurrected state, alive unto God in Christ Jesus.

Rom 6:11 Even so, reckon ye also yourselves to be dead unto sin, but alive unto God in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

Being Made Free of Sin

    In the early church, different factors to consider, gentiles having very little understanding of biblical history and knowledge of sin, and the new testament, was still not perfect (complete), all letters, and gospel accounts weren't written as of yet. Even so, there were expectations, exhorted, they were being made free of sin.

Roms 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey the lusts thereof: 13 neither present your members unto sin [as] instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves unto God, as alive from the dead, and your members [as] instruments of righteousness unto God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under law, but under grace (God's working in unmeritorious provisions, righteousness, steps). 15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under law, but under grace (God's working in unmeritorious provisions, righteousness, steps)? God forbid. 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye present yourselves [as] servants unto obedience, his servants ye are whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God, that, whereas ye were servants of sin, ye became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching whereunto ye were delivered; 18 and being made free from sin, ye became servants of righteousness. 19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye presented your members [as] servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity, even so now present your members [as] servants to righteousness unto sanctification. 20 For when ye were servants of sin, ye were free in regard of righteousness. 21 What fruit then had ye at that time in the things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. 22 But now being made free from sin and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto sanctification, and the end eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
