"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man .... And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ." 1 Cor 2:14-15, 3:1

Three types of Men
* Natural Man - The unregenerate man (unsaved)
* Carnal Man - The unruly man (saved but unsanctified)
* Spiritual Man - The unctioned man (saved and sanctified)

Examples from John 13
* Judas - natural man
* Peter - carnal man
* John - spiritual man

Very strange but interesting examples from Acts
* Ananias (Acts 23:2) - natural man
* Ananias (Acts 5:1) - carnal man
* Ananias (Acts 9:10) - spiritual man

Read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.
