How the Spiritual Is Contrary to the Carnal Life

Updated on February 11, 2016

Three Types Of People In The World

  • The carnal
  • The spiritual
  • The hypocrites
  • Actually, there are only two types.

If anyone is confused about his or her purpose in life, all a person has to do is follow the example that Jesus set and everyday day there is purpose for living. The more that a person applies righteousness to self the more significant that person is to God and everyone else.

Hypocrites (Lukewarm)

The hypocrites are actually carnal because they are partially religious/spiritual and carnal living. Hypocrites are sincere religious people but only at various times. At other times they live according to carnal means of life meaning by what and how they feel rather than by spiritual domination.


Why The Hypocrisy?

The spiritual person discovers truth through spiritual means of attending church, having a constant faith, Bible studies, personal testimonies and maintains belief in God’s promises. Usually the spiritual turns carnal minded because of certain circumstances that are related to the flesh or carnal means and because of insufficient continued spiritual support in the surrounding environment the carnal minded falls into a rut or sin until rescued by spirituality again. Hypocrites are some timing. For instance, they may go see an X-Rated Movie.

The Carnal (Cold)

The Carnal minded is considered The Atheists, and non-believers. There are those who believe that “seeing is believing.” There are those who live according to reality and have not much faith in hope, if any. There are those who feel that God has let them down because of misfortunes, death of loved ones and just plain bad luck. In the carnal mind life may end at anytime. There is not as much optimism except for self and maybe other humanitarian achievements and success. There appears to be no awakening of faith. They have no time to wait in hope. Lastly, I don't agree that the carnal hates God or spiritual people just because.


The Spiritual (Hot)

The spiritual is the most blessed. They believe in the foundation that Christ has set for all people. They live according to the Holy Spirit of God and reveal a more purposeful life. The spiritual doesn’t o see an X-Rated Movie. Most movies made today, cater to the carnal mind. Some of the latest inspirational films that I recommend for the spiritual minded are “Courageous and Fireproof.” Spiritual minded people at times, must mix and mingle with the carnal minded of family, friends and associates like Jesus Christ did in order for Him (Jesus) to save the lost.

In the spiritual mind there is no fear of anything except to fear God because He is Almighty. Therefore, with God, all things are possible. Although, all people are given choices to make it or keep it right at any given time, the Holy Spirit is a guide to lead anyone in the right way and time. It is the easiest way to depend on any thing with assuredness that things shall work out according to the will of God which is for the best. Also, if a person has a busy schedule and can't be in two or more places at the same time then according to the spirit and prayer for the priority, the appropriate place to be is manifested. It is amazing how spirituality works. Every little bit of goodness and favor is considered of God's grace, and mercy when a break was given.

Move Strictly With Faith

You may have heard let go and let God. Well, that is exactly what must be done. He is the Master of what needs to be done in any situation. That is why I am enjoying life so much. Things just seem to fall in place as I have the faith that He helps me take care of business and personal matters.

      I was just thinking the other day upon the movie options we choose to entertain ourselves with at home. There are very few now days that offer good quality themes without the added violence, drugs. language, etc. I don't watch too much TV as it is for this reason.

      Spiritual is the greatest high I have ever had, word! The more spiritual we become the more carnal thoughts satan brings to us and without that Spirit we will never be able to withstand temptations! Great Sunday message! ^+

      Very good hub here Word55 to make us consider which group we fall into.

      You give good descriptions of what determines the spiritual, carnal, and hypocrites. Well done, voted up.

      Hi Dear Word55,

      Thought-provoking hub here you have written. Yes, we surely do have to live in this world and we are to look different from the world. Valid points here too, especially not filling our minds with those carnal things of this world. When we think on those things which He would have us to: those things which are true, lovely, praiseworthy, excellent and so on, then it is much easier to not become like this world.

      Voted up and more and away

      God bless you. I hope you are well. Have missed seeing you around.

      Blessings always to you and yours
