God says, “THOU SHALT NOT KILL – and so often you think it’s your job to kill your flesh. THOU SHALT NOT KILL includes the flesh!” We think it’s okay to kill bad things – like our flesh. However, God says, “THOU SHALT NOT KILL” – at all. It’s not our job to kill our flesh. Beyond that, we have nothing to kill flesh with. We can only kill flesh with flesh – and that does not work. Furthermore, we don’t need to kill our flesh; it’s already dead. It was killed on the cross. To try to kill it is to deny the cross.
