The Natural Person, the Worldly Christian and the Spirit-filled Christian.

1And I, brothers, was not able to speak to you as to spiritual, but as fleshly—as to infants in Christ. 2I gave you milk to drink, not solid food, for not yet were you able. In fact, now you are still not able, 3for you are still fleshly. For where jealousy and strife are among you, are you not fleshly, and are walking according to man? 4For when one might say, “I indeed am of Paul,” but another, “I of Apollos,” are you not fleshly?

5Who then is Apollos? And who is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, even as the Lord has given to each. 6I planted, Apollos watered, but God kept it growing. 7So neither the one planting nor the one watering is anything, but only God, the One giving growth. 8Now the one planting and the one watering are one, and each will receive the own reward, according to the own labor. 9For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.

1st Corinthians 3

The Bible identifies three types of people:

1) The Natural Person

Non-christian, pagan, not a believer nor follower of Jesus.

2) The Worldy Christian type

Immature, baby, milk drinking, double-minded, Christian

3) The Spirit-filled Christian type

Mature, meat-eating, dynamic disciple, fervent praying, Christian
