What separates us believers from the unbelievers in our sin? It isn't "big" sin or"little" sin ... it's just plain ordinary sin. For the believer, we don't recognize things we do as sin, but they're still sin. Some are "hidden" sins ... hidden in the heart, taking place on the inside, and ones that we don't deal with.
When you look at the attitude that they're done in, you will recognize them as sin. The only ones who know that these things you do is sin are you and God ... and the Holy Spirit convicts you of it.
We are no longer the "old man" ... we are now the "new man". Sin doesn't happen in our spirit realm (our new man). It occurs in our soulish realm (our outer man), our mind, our will, and our emotions. This soulish realm is where our battleground is.
