A Call for Carnal Correction
Do you know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God?

(1) Three illustrations of forbidden love
(A) Wrong loving

(A) Therefore, God also gave them up to uncleanness, In the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves.
(3) Wrong Living Romans 2:26
(B) For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
(4) Wrong Thinking Romans 2: 28 - 32
(C) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do the things which are not fitting.
Being filled with all righteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness,
covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil mindedness, they are whisperers.
Backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents.
Undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful.
Who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death ( Eternal Separation ), not only do the same but alsoapprove to those who practice them.

(2) The churches are offering:
(A) The world
(B) The Flesh
(C) The Devil

The Devil is offering religion without God
Hosea 10:12 Says:
Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground; for it is time to seek the Lord till he comes and rain righteousness upon you.
Remember that God is sovereign, he’s shown in history that he uses even the mistakes, tragedies and follies to accomplish his higher flesh.
A call for carnal correction
Flee youthful lusts and follow after righteousness, faith, love and peace with others who call on the Lord with a pure heart. Yes, walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the lusts of your flesh.
Those who live for their flesh are always thinking about their flesh, but those who live for the Spirit are always thinking about the spirit.
To be always thinking about the flesh is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace and those who live for their flesh cannot please God,.
Blot Out My Transgressions
Have mercy upon me, O God
according to thy loving kindness
according to the multitude
of thy tender mercies,
blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly
from mine Iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin.
For I acknowledge
and my sin is ever before me.
against thee, thee only,
have I sinned,
and done this evil In thy sight.
Create in me a clean heart, O God;
and renew a right spirit within me.
restore unto me
the joy of salvation,
and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Psalm 51: 1 - 4, 10 - 12
