The Adamic nature...

The Adamic nature is a subject of the Bible that is not taught on much today. One reason is because the Adamic Nature is highly misunderstood. Another reason is because there are divided opinions on the Adamic Nature that vary from denomination to denomination. Some say that Christian's always live with the Adamic nature. Others say that Christian's can never get rid of it. I personally am led to believe the Bible teaches the Christian can be rid of the Adamic Nature's stronghold through crucifixion of self and the Baptism with the Holy Ghost.

Here are some Biblical terms used throughout the Bible to express of the Adamic nature or man's inherited propensity to sin against God.

The "Law of Sin and Death" is a spiritual expression of the Adamic nature. This is man's knowledge of the inner inclination that cause's man to do wrong.

The "Flesh" is the physical expression of the Adamic nature. This is the physical act of the wrong that man does in the eyes of God.

The "Carnal Mind" is the mental expression of the Adamic nature. This is the actual thinking behind man's wrongdoing in the eyes of God.

All the above terms are something man has knowledge of. Law brings knowledge. Knowledge brings obligation, or responsibility.

Rom 8:2...For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

The law of sin and death is mans knowledge of the inner, the physical, and the mental capacity of indwelling sin.

  1. As a believer in the truth which is Jesus Christ how can one think we cannot rid ourselves of this sinful nature? Did Jesus not suffer and die on the cross to cleanse us of our sin and rise to His Father God to show us the way? Did He not say "you must be born again"? As you said, "we must die to our fleshly wants and desires". We have the power through God's gift, His Holy Spirit, to turn away from sin and live through and for Jesus our savior. Jesus also said "as My father is in me so am I in my father, so too am I in you and you are in me" (paraphrased). We have been given a gift, but we must recieve it, open it and put it on/in ourselves.
