Somehow, we must discern that the use of the word straight in these verses, was a direct implication of the Holy Ghost to further describe and illustrate the transformation that had taken place in Paul's life. Presently, because of many mean spirited legalists that have penetrated the ranks of believers, a large number of people have been turned off to any kind of implication toward straight living. These legalists preach the truth, but without any measure of love, and because of this, most people now believe that living straight is a bore. Nothing could be farther from the truth. As it occurred in Paul's life, persecution and peril will come to any saint who attempts to live the straight way.
