Many Christians are often a bit confused about whether we as Christians have two natures.
Some people teach that we have one nature before we became a Christian, and when we are born again we got another, new nature.
This new nature is in conflict with the old one, and often we can still feel that the old nature is most dominant. The solution some preachers give is that you have to feed the good side of yourself, the new nature, so that the old one does not take over again. But that’s a lot of work.

I think this theology is not a good one, because it makes us fall under fear again!
What if I don’t feed the new nature enough? And are there any of us who can feed it enough?
I would argue that this way of thinking makes many Christians live in constant condemnation, and I was one of them.
