Romans 8:6 - For carnal thinking is death, but spiritual thinking is life
and peace.

Part 3 ~ The Confinement of Carnal Thinking

Carnal thinking is earthly and confined to what men can accomplish through
their own efforts and abilities. It is the realm of self-reliance,
self-preservation, and self-interest. There is nothing but death, fear, and
defeat within this realm. Many of God's children are stuck in this place
that has robbed them of their joy and peace, and stolen from them
confidence in God and dependence upon the Holy Spirit.

Carnal thinking is a place of condemnation, limitation, strife, and envy
with little room for faith and submission to the Holy Spirit, because in
the realm of carnal thinking, men seek their own interest and rely upon
human abilities to accomplish their goals. The carnal mind is a state in
which men hold on tightly to themselves to preserve their own well-being,
and whose securities are their earthly possessions. The carnal mind and
ways of men will altogether shut down the things the Holy Spirit has come
to teach us (1 Corinthians 3:1).
