Mortify your Earthly Members

Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

The being called man is tripartite in nature. This means man is made of three entities β€” The Spirit, Soul and body.

The body gives expresion to what the Soul and the Spirit has captured.
