My problem is with Deut. 30.11, 14 and Rom. 7.18.
Please don’t quote Haydock’s commentary. It didn’t help clarify the problem.
“For this commandment that I command you today tis not too hard for you, neither is it far off . . . But the word is very near you. It is in your mouth and in your heart, so that you can do it" (Deut. 30.11, 14).
“For I know that nothing good dwells ain me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out” (Rom. 7.18).
How can Paul say he does not have the ability to carry out the “good” (the commandments) when the Law itself says he does have the ability?
