Not Called to be Adam-Christ Believers

"It is said that Emperor William refused request for an audience prepared by a German-American. The Emperor declared that Germans born in Germany but naturalized in America became Americans: ‘I know Americans; I know Germans; but German-Americans I do not know.’ Even so, I was once bound in Adam. I am now freed in Christ. The cross cut me off, killed me outright to the old citizenship and life. I am no Adam-Christ believer. Such a position will get me no audience with my King, bring me no deliverance from bondage to the old man. Let me cease at once any such unholy duplicity. Let me declare that I am Christ’s and His alone. Let me yield fully unto Him as one ‘dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord’ (Romans 6:11)."
