The old man is "in the flesh"; the new man "in the Spirit." In the former "the works of the flesh" (Galatians 5:19-21 ) are manifest; in the latter "the fruit of the Spirit" (Galatians 5:22 , Galatians 5:23 ). One is "corrupt according to the deceitful lusts"; the other "created in righteousness and true holiness" (Ephesians 4:22-24 the King James Version). See also MAN ,
