WHAT THE BIBLE TELLS US OF IS THE NATURAL, CARNAL AND SPIRITUAL MAN.

1 Cor 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,

neither have entered into the heart of man, the things

which God hath prepared for them that love him.

1 Cor 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the

Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

Cor 2:11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit

of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth

no man, but the Spirit of God. .

1 Cor 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but

the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things

that are freely given to us of God. .

1 Cor 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s

wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth;

comparing spiritual things with spiritual. .

1 Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the

Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither

can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

1 Cor 2:15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he

himself is judged of no man.

But we have the mind of Christ. .

1 Cor 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto

spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in

Christ. .

1 Cor 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto

ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

1 Cor 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you

envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and

walk as men? .

1 Cor 3:4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of

Apollos; are ye not carnal?

In this sermon out line we see that man lives in a natural body but can live as a natural man or live as a carnal man or can be what God wants all of us to be in our Christian walk and that is a spiritual man. In this outline we look at what the Word says and how we can become a spiritual person walking in the Word and Will of God for our lives. It is only then we can be fulfilled in our lives and be truly happy. (Rom 8:6 KJV) For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

I. Let us look first at the NATURAL MAN that Paul speaks of in

1 Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the

Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither

can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

A. First most important HE DOES NOT RECEIVE SPIRITUAL THINGS.

1. Why? It is because he DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THE WORD.

2. The natural man tries to understand God with his five senses.

3. He looks for God with his five natural senses.

4. He considers the things of God as foolishness.

5. It was natural for man to adopt credit buying has had long experience paying now for past sins.

II. Paul then tells of the CARNAL MAN WHO IS A BABE IN CHRIST, SAVED BUT NOT MATURE. 1 Cor 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. .

A. WORK OF FLESH IS MANIFEST IN THE CARNAL MAN.

1 Cor 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
