I've Dealt With It -- so there.

I'm sitting at the table and I tell him that I've dealt with a particular problem. A character flaw. An aspect of the sin nature. Paul didn't say he dealt with it. Paul was always dealing with it. Present tense. He understood that from the time of becoming a disciple of Jesus, it becomes a race. It becomes a fight. (I've run the race, fought the good fight.)

So here's another sure sign of Ego (the flesh). If I say I've "dealt" with an issue, that means I'm conning myself. I will always be dealing with the sin nature.
