Romans 7:7
ז אִם כֵּן, מַה נֹּאמַר? הַאִם הַתּוֹרָה הִיא בְּחֶזְקַת חֵטְא? חַס וְחָלִילָה! אַךְ לֹא הָיִיתִי יוֹדֵעַ מַהוּ חֵטְא אִלּוּלֵי הַתּוֹרָה; הֲרֵי לֹא הָיִיתִי מַכִּיר אֶת הַתַּאֲוָה אִלּוּ לֹא אָמְרָה הַתּוֹרָה ״לֹא–תַחְמֹד״. (שמות כ׳ יג׳//דברים ה׳ יז׳)

Romans 7:7
7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. (KJV)

Paul goes on teaching about the Torah asking if the Torah is sin in Romans 7:7. Paul’s conclusion is that the command gave him knowledge of sin and due to his weakness he sinned. The Torah didn’t make him sin. LESS

Dr. Duane D. Miller received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron Ohio. He is currently a Chemical Engineering Researcher. Duane’s research expertise has focused upon functional materials development for the control, conversion, and release of process gases in Energy production technologies. His R&D interests include computational chemistry, developing novel technologies for converting biomass to fuels and studying their fundamental interactions during the chemical conversion process. His past experience includes sorbent development for pre- and post-combustion CO2 and SO2 capture, selective absorption of H2S from methane streams, O2 capture for oxy-fuel combustion, photocatalytic reduction of alcohols, NOx reduction catalysis, the development of oxygen carriers to combust fossil fuels (CH4 and coal) for the chemical looping combustion processes, and the extraction of rare earth elements using patent pending sorbents. His research expertise has focused on operando-characterization using Infrared, Raman, and UV-Vis spectroscopy to observe the nature of the catalytic active sites and reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions, allowing direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance during Gas-Solid / Liquid-Solid Adsorption and Photocatalytic Processes with real time online analysis of reaction products using ICP-MS and mass spectrometry. His current work involves a multi-disciplinary approach to developing, understanding, and improving the catalytic gasification of coal and methane, high temperature chemical looping combustion, and the catalytic decomposition and gasification of biomass and coal using novel microwave reactor.​ He has been studying the Hebrew Scriptures and the Torah for 20+ years and sharing what he has learned.
