"The carnal mind is enmity against God..."
Text: Romans 8:7
A SHARPER PICTURE OF THE CARNAL MINDSET
The apostle Paul intended a sharp contrast to be shown between the two mindsets- spiritual and carnal! In order to dissuade anyone who might be drawn by carnality Paul wrote the following text.
“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God;
for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
