Romans: Volumes are written about Romans alone so I will never render it appropriate justice. The short answer: likened to a child who is forbidden by his parent to cross the street, he finds the greatest desire to cross the street. While one can’t sin “outside” the law, one doesn’t need a law to tell him that murder and steeling are wrong. The commands against such may, in fact, make them more appealing.
