The Scriptures call the mind of the natural man: Blinded (2 Cor. 4:4) Depraved (Romans 1:28) Corrupt (1 Tim. 6:5) and Unspiritual (Col. 2:18)
The natural mind thinks from a humanistic, sin-debased viewpoint. The viewpoint of the flesh directs its thoughts. The sinful mind is under the control of Satan and can never please God because it concentrates on things of the world and not the things of God. The natural mind walks a path of hopelessness and self-destruction.
I spoke about this yesterday in my sermon, I never thought I would see here in America, Americans killing our Police Officers. It’s just awful to write these stories! What have we turned into as a people? We are a lawless nation, that is what we are.
James 4:54-7….You adulteresses. do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: He jealousy desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us? But he gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Submit therefore yourself to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Many have become enemies of God…..they have turned to the darkness…..they have left God. We have increased crime, corruption, drug addiction and immorality.
