We mustn’t excuse our sinning by passing the buck to the old nature. That is a form of blame-shifting that will not work. God holds the person responsible, not the nature. Perhaps you’ve heard the fictitious story of the speeder who said to the judge, “Your honour, it was my old nature that was speeding.” To which the judge replied, “I fine your old nature £50 for speeding, and I fine your new nature £50 for being an accessory.” Blaming the old nature just isn’t the way to go.
