Carnal minded

When you first see the truth inspired from God you being carnal most likely will be skeptical. Why? --- It’s because God created us to be against him.
*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. 8 so then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Carnal means flesh, God created us flesh. The law of God is in the word (Gal 5:14). God hates pride (Pro 8:13) yet he made mankind to be full of pride, enmity means hate. You need to go against your carnal mind and to think with your heart and when your mind starts to doubt the truth in the word tell your mind to stop thinking and let your heart meditate on it.
*Luke 8:12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
*James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
*Pro 18:13 He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.
*Matt 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
*Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
How can a carnal mind submit to be pleasing to God?
*Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Faith is thinking with your heart not with your carnal mind of hate.
*Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
*Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
*Rom 8:24For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
The dictionary says hope is a feeling that what is desired will happen. You can feel faith, the substance of things hoped for, by seeing what God has created all around you. You are without excuse if you can't look and/or feel around you the whole creation and see the almighty power of God's ability to save all of his flesh and blood children created in his image.
God who is love (1 John 4:8) never fails (1 Cor 13:8). Nothing is impossible with God. With your heart opened in faith and the word of love now being delivered to the world (1 John 4:8) you will see why our creator and Father whose love passes all knowledge created evil and why he created us to hate him.
*Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil I the LORD do all these things.
Can this verse really mean what it says? God who is love (1 John 4:8), created evil? God cannot lie (Titus 1:2) so it is true. Why?
*Matt 10: 34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
*Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
*John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
*Matt 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Let’s try living through every word of God, every word of God in the Bible is every word of love because God is love (1 John 4:8) even if it doesn’t sound like love to our carnal mind, God cannot lie, there is a reason for everything. Satan the murderer and liar from the beginning has been allowed by God to deceive the whole world, to teach his children the knowledge of good and evil. It is so that when we are all resurrected to immortality none will turn against God.
