1 Corinthians 3:3 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Carnal (σαρκικοί)

Here the milder word is used (see 1 Corinthians 3:1), having the nature of flesh. In 1 Corinthians 3:1, Paul would say that he was compelled to address the Corinthians as unspiritual, made of flesh. Here he says that though they have received the Spirit in some measure, they are yet under the influence of the flesh.
