If a person was doing drugs all his life and suddenly heard a message of another way of living, where he decided to quit doing drugs, although he may still have urges, does he consider himself a drug addict? Does that mean he is still a drug addict? How can he become a drug addict? If he starts doing it again, but as long as he chose the new life and he stays in it, over time, those things fall away. So when does he become free, not a drug addict? Is it later, or is it right away?
Now apply this to the spiritual. If you have chosen to be crucified, count yourself dead and a new being, because the Bible says so!
