Bad Kool-Aid: Late Invention of Carnal Christians

If you don’t know what I mean by “Bad Kool-Aid” please read the introduction to this series.

Lordship Salvation proponents often state that the concept of “Carnal Christians” was invented in modern times as an excuse for the terrible behaviour of some people claiming to be Christians. They say that as this behaviour became almost normal in professing Christendom that something had to be done to explain how this could be and the idea of “Carnal Christians” was born.

This is Bad Kool-Aid because most of the New Testament is written to Christians in order to correct carnal behaviour. In particular 1Cor 3:1-4 cites explicitly that there are “Carnal Christians.”

There then is debate about what Paul meant by this phrase but he explains it well himself in the passage; and all the more so with the remainder of his letters to this and other assemblies.
