Section II - Understanding the Will of God

The Flesh

Flesh can control Your Mind

If our flesh or fleshly desires, driven by our fallen human spirit fill our soul, then our mind is controlled by the flesh. We are driven by outside forces and desires and the lusts of the body, so Satan controls our lives even though we are Christians and even though our body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit, we live in the flesh.

Romans 8:1-8 

1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

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.

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. (KJV)
