I wrote this footnote today:
"From a standpoint of clarity, it is unfortunate that Paul took the time in 7:25b to summarize the situation he has been describing in 7:7-24—the person wanting to keep the Law but not having the Spirit to be able to do so: 'I myself then with my mind serve the Law of God
but with the flesh the law of sin.' Again, Paul makes it abundantly clear in both the lead up and follow up to this section that slavery to sin should not be the current situation of a
person in Christ. Romans 8:8 further indicates that those who are in the flesh are not able to please God. It is unfortunate that readers of Paul, not least Luther, have so identified with the
situation he presents in 7:7-24 that they often cannot see that it is exactly this state that Paul believes is untenable for a person in Christ."
