Transcript of Understanding Worldliness:
The Lust of the Flesh
“Whoever meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a passing dog by the ears.”
The Flesh: A Helpful Diagnosis
1 John 2:16
"For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world."
The flesh is our unredeemed humanity

The Flesh: Our Spiritual Battle
The flesh fight is with us until we go to Heaven.
Asceticism will seem like the right approach but it is of no help in dealing with the flesh.
If we are not killing sin it will be killing us.
The true path to dealing with the flesh has to do with how we think and what we love (3:1, 2, and 10)
Flesh fight truths from Colossians:
The Flesh and the Spirit
A Pathway to Victory
Walking in the Spirit
The Flesh is the life long presence of our unredeemed humanity
It operates in the way we think and what we love
It requires constant killing
It is defeated by God's truth
It is defeated by affectionate love of Christ
It is defeated by Walking in the Spirit
Its final defeat will only happen in Heaven
