Romans 8:2-8 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus (faith) hath made me free from the law of sin and death (mankind’s fallen nature).

For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually (faith) minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God (faith), neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh (doubt) cannot please God.
