God gives us His word by revelation, but the application of the meaning of that revelation is hammered out in the grief’s, the problems, and the burdens of our lives. And Paul is here saying: There are problems. They are real problems, I am not saying they are to be overlooked; but I am saying there is a way of dealing with them. As sinners, because we are all sinners, some saved sinners and others lost sinners; as saved sinners we are slow learners, and it sometimes takes the community of Christ centuries to learn some very simple facts.
