THE UNMORTIFIED MAN.

​”An unmortified man is quickly tempted and overcome in small, trifling evils; his spirit is weak, in a measure carnal and inclined to sensual things; he can hardly abstain from earthly desires. He is quick to anger if reproved. He does not get peace from pursuing his passions.


True peace of heart then, is found in resisting passions, not in satisfying them. There is no peace in the carnal man, who is given to vain affections, but there is peace in the fervent and spiritual man.”


-Thomas a Kempis


“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”

-Romans 8:12-14 (KJV)
