Mind Control

Rom 8:5  For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
Rom 8:6  For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Rom 8:7  Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Rom 8:8  So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Rom 8:9  But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Rom 8:10  And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Rom 8:11  But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
It is impossible to keep all the commandments in the mind of flesh. Jesus died in the flesh for our sins, and those who receive him have died spiritually to the flesh and are alive with him in His Spirit, the Spirit of God and of Christ is the Holy Spirit. When I was in a photography business a professed Christian came with a number of negatives of a nude woman for me to enlarge. I said that I prefer not to do this as a Christian. He said well I am a Christian too, a carnal Christian. He sent me several Bible lessons on being a carnal Christian, to him it was all right. Watching pornography is all right to some Christians. More and more people think that this is not a sin. Listen now, it may be carnal, but there are evil spirits involved with this and by choosing to sin you give them access into your life. If you are grieving the spirit, you will know it is wrong. Repent and walk in his spirit. The carnal mind leads to death. The spiritual mind is an inheritor of eternal life with Christ Jesus.

Rom 8:14  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
Rom 8:15  For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Rom 8:16  The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Rom 8:17  And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Mind the things of Christ.
