Dave Roth, AuthorWelcome! This website is for you who are seeking to learn more about God's word. I must apologize for the fact that our site has been down for so long. There was a mix up over who had the domain name registered and how we could pay for it. Evidently they had the wrong email address by which to notify us for renewal. If you have missed any of the daily installments, you can catch up by going to this link for Romans.

You now have the option to read our Bible studies in a variety of languages. Just select your language from the drop down box which appears in the right hand column of every page.

Thank you for visiting this site and may God bless you and use you in mighty ways for your interest in learning and distributing His Holy Word. If you are a new Christian or an unbeliever seeking truth, let me suggest that you begin with the book of Matthew. The life and testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will bring you joy and blessings beyond belief.

Today's Bible Study

The Carnal Mind

Romans 8:5-7

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. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Why did God have to send His Son to die for us? Why was it the only way that the righteousness of the law could be fulfilled in those who walk after the Spirit and not after the flesh? Although the answers might by now be obvious to some, these are the questions that Paul now endeavors to answer so that every reader would have a clear understanding of the effects of sin.

"For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh..." Those unregenerate persons who are in their natural state, controlled by the desires of the flesh, are mentally and morally focused on those things that satisfy the flesh. The desires of the flesh, therefore, govern their actions.

In contrast, "they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit." They are governed mentally and morally by the Holy Spirit. Their affections are focused on the things of God, their desires are to serve Him, and their will is subjected to His will.

"For to be carnally minded is death." It is a way of life separated from the will of God and morally unacceptable to Him. Living according to the flesh results in eternal punishment, and there is no possibility of a pardon except through faith in Jesus Christ.    Read More
