Arndt: crucified with Him
Commemoration of Margery Kempe, Mystic, after 1433
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.
—Galatians 5:24 (NIV)
If thou believest that Christ was crucified for the sins of the world, thou must with Him be crucified... If thou refusest to comply with this order, thou canst not be a living member of Christ, nor be united with Him by faith.
... John Arndt (1555-1621), True Christianity, tr. A. W. Boehm, Boston: Lincoln & Edmands, 1809, II.iv.18, p. 383 (see the book)
