When people hear the word "carnal" they often think of things like rampant sex, extreme greed, gross demands for independency, or even grotesque social injustice. Those behaviors are just that - behaviors. Those are manifestations of a carnal heart, much like symptoms of a virus. Vomiting, headaches, and dizziness are not the problem ... the viral infection is the actual problem. The same is true with carnality.
Carnality is a disease of the heart; it is an attempt one makes to find satisfaction or fulfillment outside of the heart of God.
Simply put, being a "carnal" person is really a matter of trying to do for yourself only that which God can do. It's trying to accomplish supernatural living standards through human efforts and strength. Thus, when a person attempts to live by one's own personal standards, or by one's own set of rules, life eventually breaks down and doesn't work.
You were never meant to do for yourself those things that only God can do.
