If carnal men are to be converted, we must preach to them the very message they do not want to hear, and the let the Holy Spirit do the work!
In the same way, if a Christian is being carnal, we must rebuke them the very reproof they do not want to hear, and in the same way let the Holy Spirit do the work!
Either we’re Christian or carnal, no one can serve two masters at the same time. Love one and hate the other, we cannot love both Christianity and carnality.
“I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:15-16)
