That makes no sense, unless you believe there are two, walking around in one vessel. The death of the old man is complete at one's baptism into Christ's death, burial, and one is raised with Christ to walk in newness of life. (Rom 6:3-6) That is a false doctrine. A doctrine of those who refuse to submit to God. Along with 'gradual sanctification' and 'sin after rebirth', they deny the power of God in the repentant's life.
