What happens is that on one place, the writer is discussing certain issues and uses the term "Old Man" while he or another writer chose the term "Natural Man" as they were talking about something else. It doesn't establish a separation of meaning of the two terms, but does provide insight into whatever the two(??) writers were speaking of in their particular places.

The important thing was what was our natural or old way v God's way. The term put with it was not the point.

But Lee constantly emphasized the differences and made the term as important or even more so by talking about it in this way. It creates a false sense of special knowledge to have had this definitional differentiation given to you.
I once thought I was. . . . but I may have been mistaken Edge (with apologies)
