This is what I think the overall message of this passage is: S ince they didn't learn Christ in this way (namely, how the Gentiles live), therefore they ought to put off the old man (i.e., the sinful, natural man) and be renewed in the mind and put on the new man. The new man is someone created by God, who accords with righteousness and holiness in truth. This is because God is righteous and holy and Truth, therefore his creation accords with these attributes. So put on the new man; put on righteousness, holiness and truth. Put on Christ (Rom. 13:14).
