Paul's Thorn In The Flesh
I think that Paul's thorn in his side had to be a sin. I think 'thorn' was a euphemism for a sin. I agree that in Romans7 he talks about doing the things he did not want to do and that he keeps doing. He didn't use it in the past tense at that time. This was something that was present and onging. I also agree that he attributed it to sin that lived in his flesh. I have heard it said that it was an affliction but I don't agree with that. A thorn is something that you get in and under you skin. You have to work it to get it out. This takes time. An affliction you can't work out. You have to live with it.
