What is it to live after the flesh?
We answer, It is to live after, in conformity to, and in
gratification of, the inclinations and cravings of the fallen human
nature. And it is the easiest thing possible to do this. All we have
to do is just listlessly to abandon ourselves to the current of our
old nature, and cease to strive against it. As soon as we do this,
we begin to float down the stream, and by and by we find the current
more and more rapid and resistance more and more difficult.
