'CARNAL' CHRISTIANS - SAVED or NOT??

The following quote from Leonard Ravenhill caused the biggest
reaction yet on our Facebook page. We are now discussing it on
our new website - where ANYONE can now comment (not just 
members). Here is the quote and a few of the replies-

The QUOTE:

"Get rid of this bunkum about the 'carnal Christian'. Forget it! If 
you're carnal, you're not saved." - Leonard Ravenhill.

Some REPLIES:

A.M - "Well the Bible is white and black, there is no gray, either 
you're with Christ or you are against Him.
"He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather 
with me, scatters.""

R.B -  "I have enjoyed reading through all the comments regarding 
this quote. In my opinion, and correct me if am wrong Andrew, but 
I feel that the meaning of this quote is refing to those who habitually 
live in carnality. I think that every Christian falls into carnallity from time
to time, does that make them "unsaved"? I don't think so."

L.C - "Well I don't agree on this one! The Bible speaks of carnal 
"Christians"! In 1 Corinthians 3:1-3 Paul is speaking to the 
Corinthian BELIEVERS when he tells them he couldn't speak to 
them as spiritual (one governed by the Spirit) but as carnal, mere 
infants in Christ."

A.M - "If you read 1 Corinthians, Paul is rebuking them for 
being carnal, not condoning it."

Olive Branch - "Without the phrase ('Carnal Christian') many so 
called Christians have no way of justifying their sin."
