Flesh, Summary: “Flesh,” in the ethical sense, is the whole natural or unregenerate man, spirit, soul, and body, as centered upon self, prone to sin, and opposed to God Romans 7:18. The regenerate man is not “in the sphere of the flesh,” but in the sphere of the Spirit Romans 8:9 but the flesh is still in him, and he may, according to his choice, “walk after the flesh” or “in the Spirit” ; 1 Corinthians 3:1-4; Galatians 5:16,17. In the first case he is a “carnal,” in the second a “spiritual,” Christian. Victory over the flesh will be the habitual experience of the believer who walks in the Spirit ; Romans 8:2,4; Galatians 5:16,17.
