Good Word! Thank you for this message!
When I hear preachers and teachers talk about "carnal Christians, I often wonder how they reconcile that view with scripture. For example, Phil. 2:13 says "For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure." God saves us where we're at, but He does not leave us there. True believers receive the grace of sanctification, which power works in us throughout our lives.
"Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." (Rom. 8:7). If the carnal mind is enmity against God and not subject to His law, how can there be such a thing as a carnal Christian?
Dr. Johnston, you make a wonderful biblical case against the "carnal Christian" teaching, and it is a breath of fresh air!
