"I experienced 35 years of being pushed around by the old man..." - Bro. B.A. Hobby
On Sunday night of Camp Meeting 1960, Bro. B.A. Hobby began his sermon "Don't Pamper The Old Man" reading from Ephesians 4 which states "That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness."
Bro. B.A. goes on to enumerate the ways the old man, which is the sin nature, holds back the sinner and trips-up the converted man or woman.
He concludes by emphasizing the biblical truth that the old man must be destroyed and we must put on the new man (new nature) through sanctification (the second work of grace) to make it to heaven.
