Overcoming The Carnal Mind

By Nathan Payne | pablosmoglives | 21 Sep 2022

It may be necessary to withdraw from people, places, and situations that drag you into a carnal mindset. More than mere hedonism, the carnal mindset also includes depression, despair, and perhaps even a desire to die that can open you up to suicidal thoughts and spirits, if you're not careful. Romans 8:6 is accurate when it says the carnal mind is death.

Fortunately, someone DOES care. And He is real. If you're reading this, it's not too late. Christ will replace your deadly, dead-end carnal mindset with joy. Yes, joy. Happiness is a side-effect; joy exists regardless of any outward circumstances or stimuli. Nehemiah 8:10 says, "the joy of the LORD is your strength."

It's true. There's little to nothing that's much weaker than the carnal mindset. It is entirely co-dependent on situations and circumstances. If those circumstances change, or fail, despair can easily set in.

Avoid this trap, and embrace a spiritual mindset before it's too late.

Thanks for listening.


Romans 8

6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.


Romanos 8

6 Porque la mente carnal es muerte, pero la mente espiritual, vida y paz:

7 Porque la mente carnal es enemistad contra Dios; porque no se sujeta a la ley de Dios, ni tampoco puede.

8 Así que, los que están en la carne no pueden agradar a Dios.

13 Porque si vivís conforme a la carne, moriréis, mas si por el Espíritu hacéis morir las obras de la carne, viviréis.


"And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:" Revelation 2:26

"Y al que venciere y guardare mis obras hasta el fin, yo le daré potestad sobre las naciones;" Apocalipsis 2:26


"Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?" 2 Corinthians 13:5

"Examinaos a vosotros mismos si estáis en la fe; probaos a vosotros mismos. ¿No os conocéis a vosotros mismos, que Jesucristo está en vosotros, a menos que seáis reprobados?" 2 Corintios 13:5
