    1 Corinthians 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? The Corinth Church were saved people, but they had a lot of sin in there lives, that why they were carnal, they were not growing in the Lord. Are we living like the Corinth today? I speak as a fool, maybe we do have churches like Corinth today.
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Ray: Romans 7 is past tense, Paul is telling us who he ((was)) under sin. Paul uses the law of divorce and remarriage to show us that death is the only way to be remarried, in this case death is the way to separate from from the devil sin and be married unto Jesus to righteousness. 33 times Paul uses the letter ((I)) to show that you are in trouble if you are walking the way he did in sin.
  • Ray321
    Romans 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. The flesh is not perfect, but one day we will have a perfect body. Romans 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. That we should not serve sin, that means it's possible to serve sin when saved.
  • Wayne
    V. 4 and onward shows that whosoever divides up the body of Christ, the Church, is still carnal, ruled by sin. There are no divisions in God's church, never has been, never will be. The Church of God,always, will be triumphant. There is a remnant on the narrow road that will not, ever, be deceived.

    1 Corinthians 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. Paul was feeding the Corinth believers, but they were caught up in there sins. Paul had to eat his pride and not judge but to show love Charity to the Corinth believers. We have to have patience and Love one another, God will work it out, it's all in His hand
