  1. SHEEP IN THE WORD MINISTRIES Rev. Robert C. Lewis • Glendale Baptist Church • Houston, Texas quicknotes.org • 2007

  2. CARNALITY AND CARNAL CHRISTIANS

  3. Problem:(1) inherent sin (the sin nature)Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest (Ephesians 2:3).(2) personal sins (mental, verbal, and overt)

  4. DEFINITION OF CARNALITY • carnal Christians are true believers who unknowingly or knowingly persist in sin, are continually quenching the Holy Spirit, and have no fellowship with God

  5. • carnal Christians are controlled by the flesh, not by the Holy Spirit(1 Corinthians 3:1, 3)

  6. • carnal Christians may be jealous and cause strife in the local church (1 Corinthians 3:3)

  7. • carnal Christians may cause divisions in the local church (1 Corinthians 3:4; cf. 1:11–12; 11:18–19)

  8. • carnal Christians walk like unbelievers (1 Corinthians 3:3, 4; cf. Ezekiel 18:24)

  9. INCEST AT CORINTH

  10. • continuing incest with his step-mother—not a one night stand (1 Corinthians 5:1)

  11. • he is saved—a "brother" (5:11)

  12. • he is a member of the church (5:2, 12, 13)

  13. • his behavior is not like but worse than non-Christians (5:1)

  14. • apply social separation to him (5:11)

  15. • he is wicked and should be excommunicated from the church (5:2, 13)

  16. • the sin unto deathwill not cancel his salvation (5:5)

  17. STILL CARNAL AT CORINTH 2 CORINTHIANS 12

  18. • only six or seven months have passed since Paul wrote his first epistle to the Corinthians

  19. • many are still immoral and refuse to repent(2 Corinthians 12:21)

  20. • they are Christians—"beloved" (2 Corinthians 12:19)

  21. • they are capable of being "built up”(2 Corinthians 12:19)

  22. IN THE MINISTRY OF JESUS

  23. • there were believers Jesus could not trust:Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in His name, beholding His signs which He was doing. But Jesus, on His part, was not entrusting Himself to them, for He knew all men…(John 2:23–24).

  24. • many believers were afraid to confess their belief in Jesus because they put man's approval above God's:Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God (John 12:42–43).

  25. SIMON MAGUS Acts 8:9–24

  26. • he was saved and baptized (Acts 8:13)

  27. • his heart was not right before God (Acts 8:21)

  28. • he was full of bitter envy and bound by sin (Acts 8:23)

  29. • he was under the sin unto death ("perish with you" Acts 8:20)

  30. • forgiveness of his wickedness was possible (Acts 8:22, 24)

  31. NO PART WITH CHRIST John 13:3–11

  32. • to wash means to wash in part—a part of the body (nipto);to bathe means to wash all over—the whole body (louo)

  33. • to be bathed and completely clean is to be regenerate (John 13:10)

  34. • bathed (regenerate) people often need to wash their feet (John 13:10),e.g., after walking to a banquet in sandals

  35. • washing is cleansing from daily sin by confession (cf. 1 John 1:9)

  36. • a refusal to wash is to have no part (inheritance) with Christ (John 13:8):meros is a "part" in contrast to the whole,echein meros meta means "to share with; be a partner with,”meros is used in the LXX to translate heleq—the inheritance of a portion of land in Canaan (Numbers 18:20; Deuteronomy 12:12; 14:27)

  37. • each tribe except Levi was to have its portion or share of the Promised Land

  38. • meros may be a "share" of an inheritance(Proverbs 17:2 LXX; Luke 15:12)

  39. • carnal Christians will have no share of the Kingdom(cf. 1 Corinthians 6:9–10)

  40. • all of the disciples are bathed and completely clean except Judas (John 13:9–10)

  41. • each will have a portion of land to rule with Jesus in the millennial Kingdom (cf. Matthew 19:28; Luke 22:28–30)

  42. • footwashing is an ordinance symbolizing confession of sin and temporal cleansingin Brethren churches
