New self (chapter 3)

Paul said that they had put on the new self, a new lifestyle.  They were being renewed like their creator God.  With this new person, there would be no more distinctions, neither Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian or cultured, slave or free.  Christ was in all and all were in Christ.  The new person was a follower of Christ, plain and simple, nothing else.
