Central Idea: The direct inference from setting one's mind on heavenly things is the command, "put to death what is earthly in you." Paul also commands, "Do not lie to one another..." The reality of the Christian life is that the believer is constantly being transformed, from the old, earthly-minded self to the new, heavenly-minded, Christ -renewed self. This transformation of heart and mind carries with it, the responsibility to obey - to be Christlike. Explanations / Questions: v.7-8, the +/- relationship is one of contrasting statements, "you once..., but now..." v.9 Why is lying uniquely set apart? And more so, (v.11) why is this command specifically grounded by the 'new creation' inwhich there are no racial / social divides?

Νεκρώσατε οὖν τὰ μέλη τὰ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, πορνείαν, ἀκαθαρσίαν, πάθος, ἐπιθυμίαν κακήν, καὶ τὴν πλεονεξίαν ἥτις ἐστὶν εἰδωλολατρεία,
Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
δι’ ἃ ἔρχεται ἡ ὀργὴ τοῦ θεοῦ.
On account of these the wrath of God is coming.

ἐν οἷς καὶ ὑμεῖς περιεπατήσατέ ποτε
In these you too once walked,
ὅτε ἐζῆτε ἐν τούτοις·
when you were living in them.

νυνὶ δὲ ἀπόθεσθε καὶ ὑμεῖς τὰ πάντα, ὀργήν, θυμόν, κακίαν, βλασφημίαν, αἰσχρολογίαν ἐκ τοῦ στόματος ὑμῶν·

μὴ ψεύδεσθε εἰς ἀλλήλους,
Do not lie to one another,
ἀπεκδυσάμενοι τὸν παλαιὸν ἄνθρωπον σὺν ταῖς πράξεσιν αὐτοῦ,
seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices
καὶ ἐνδυσάμενοι τὸν νέον
and have put on the new self,
τὸν ἀνακαινούμενον εἰς ἐπίγνωσιν κατ’ εἰκόνα τοῦ κτίσαντος αὐτόν,
which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.
ὅπου οὐκ ἔνι Ἕλλην καὶ Ἰουδαῖος, περιτομὴ καὶ ἀκροβυστία, βάρβαρος, Σκύθης, δοῦλος, ἐλεύθερος,
Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free;
ἀλλὰ τὰ πάντα καὶ ἐν πᾶσιν Χριστός.
but Christ is all, and in all.
