What Should We Think of the Carnal Christian?
Banner of Truth Booklet
Share |

"The Carnal Christian" is an incisive analysis of one of the major problems in the contemporary evangelical scene in the United States. If evangelicals are now 35 or 40 million strong how is it that the life of the nation is so little affected? Evangelism has reaped a great harvest but the question has been rightly raised, what is wrong with the harvest? One of the most popular answers to this question is that too many Christians have stoped at 'conversion'; they are 'carnal Christians' who have not yet learned to live a surrendered life. Ernest Reisinger examines this suggestion and the consequences which have resulted from its widespread acceptance. If this view of the 'carnal Christian' theory is correct then the real problem is more serious than is commonly supposed. It is a problem which can only be solved by a return to the New Testament's teaching on conversion.

This is a good and concise booklet that shines light on the false teaching of the “Carnal Christian” doctrine which makes three categories for man. The categories are 1. Unregenerate or lost, 2. is the carnal Christian who is regenerate but is following the flesh and as not made Christ Lord of their life only accepted him as savior, 3. is the Spiritual Christian who has Christ as their Lord and Savior. Reisinger shows clearly the dangers of this teaching and shows that the Bible only teaches 2 categories of man “regenerate and unregenerate, converted and unconverted, those in Christ and those outside of Christ…” A good read especially if this is something you have been confronted with.- Kenneth Clayton
