I am not so certain that I've got this one down. I know that Paul is contrasting the walk of the unbelieving Gentiles with the walk of believing Christians. It appears to me that he is doing so by explaining the progressive degeneration of the Gentile and a series of Christian responses. So that then unbelieving Gentile is: 1) Darkened in understanding 2) Alienated from God 3) Callous leading to immorality The believer is to be: 1) putting off the old self 2) renewed in the Spirit 3) putting on the new self
