God bless youYes the INNER man is renewed. The outer man is still suffering and striving. That will end when Jesus returns, not before as Paul stipulated.

Your quote from 1 Corinthians 15:24 is referring to the future when 'He will/ not 'he did' Read the verse before it for context. 1 Cor. 15:21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. This must happen first, then the end comes
1 Cor. 15: 51 I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”
This is the time Paul was writing about, when death is defeated when we are clothed with immortality and will never die.
In the verse you quoted Paul is referring to the end of time not today Read it in context. The key word in that verse is 'will'

Who do you think the just souls made perfect are who are in Heaven (Heb 12:22)? We are judged the moment we die but the Great Judgment when we'll receive our glorious incorruptible bodies will be on the Last Day. Seriously, Rich, who do you think those are in Heaven who ask Jesus: "How long, O Master, the holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?" ~ Rev 6:10

But we know for certain that the “defenders of the fatherland” in the imperialist war represent only a minority. And it is therefore our duty, if we wish to remain socialists to go down lower and deeper, to the real masses; this is the whole meaning and the whole purport of the struggle against opportunism. By exposing the fact that the opportunists and social-chauvinists are in reality betraying and selling the interests of the masses, that they are defending the temporary privileges of a minority of the workers, that they are the vehicles of bourgeois ideas and influences, that they are really allies and agents of the bourgeoisie, we teach the masses to appreciate their true political interests, to fight for socialism and for the revolution through all the long and painful vicissitudes of imperialist wars and imperialist armistices.
The only Marxist line in the world labour movement is to explain to the masses the inevitability and necessity of breaking with opportunism, to educate them for revolution by waging a relentless struggle against opportunism, to utilise the experience of the war to expose, not conceal, the utter vileness of national-liberal labour politics.
“Russia is surrounded by enemies and must assert its status in the world as a great power.” That is a position an overwhelming portion of the Russian population supports and hence backs the regime.

Russia: Pokemon Go Blogger Convicted
"In September, authorities searched Sokolovsky’s apartment and arrested him on charges of incitement to hatred and insult to the religious feelings of believers, criminal offenses under articles 282 and 148 of Russia’s criminal code. In January 2017, authorities initiated a new criminal investigation against Sokolovsky on charges of “trafficking in special technical devices [designed] for surreptitious obtainment of information” under article 138 of the criminal code, for having a pen with a video camera, which police officials seized from his apartment during the search. He was found guilty of all offenses at trial."
"In his first major message to the Americas as a whole, a 135 page exhortation, "Ecclesia in America," he acknowledges that many of the hemisphere's 500 million Catholics are only nominally Catholic, but called on them to engage in intense prayer, and to seek "a personal encounter with Christ."

"A young man from Yekaterinburg was arrested for two
months by court decision not for catching Pokemon at the
church, but for making a video (perhaps it was not the
only video) where he quite specifically demonstrates and
comments on the whole process, and so on," head of
the Synodal Department for Church, Society and Media
Relations Vladimir Legoyda wrote on a social network.
Moreover, despite media reports, Yekaterinburg mayor
Yevgeny Roizman turned not to the patriarch but to
Metropolitan Kirill of Yekaterinburg. "But jumpy
colleagues, seeing ‘Vladyka Kirill’
immediately began to write about ‘the appeal to the
patriarch’—certainly it’s more
noteworthy," Legoyda further said.
Speaking about the incident, he pointed out that Ruslan
Sokolovsky is not "an occasional passerby who
impulsively came into the church being involved in the
game, but is rather a well-known blogger in the city, who
works in a Charlie Hebdo style of deliberate
provocation. He does not conceal it in his video: he went
to see what would happen."
The Moscow Patriarchate representative urged to keep calm,
assuring that no one in the Church is
"bloodthirsty" against the young blogger, nor
finding pleasure in what is "mixed in the souls and
minds of our youth who are involved in such nonsense in
According to Legoyda, priests can and should talk to R.
Sokolovsky and try to explain him what a church is and
what it’s for, “to help the guy."
"Perhaps, then this frustrated fighter for rights no
one has violated will understand what Jesus Christ, Whom
he did not hesitate to call ‘the rarest
Pokemon,’ brought to man and mankind," Legoyda
