Slide 14 A natural man is a person who chooses to be influenced by the passions, desires, appetites, and senses of the flesh rather than by the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Such a person can comprehend physical things but not spiritual things. All people are carnal, or mortal, because of the fall of Adam and Eve. Each person must be born again through the atonement of Jesus Christ to cease being a natural man.

Wants to get back to His presence. Has not been with Heavenly Father. Naturally desires fleshy things. Slide 16 UNDERSTAND Memorize For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father. Slide 17 Mosiah 3:19 Spiritual Man I believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; I believe all things, I hope all things, I have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, I seek after these things. Natural Man I believe in being dishonest, immoral, and being an enemy to God; I deny all things, I ridicule all things, I have ruined many things, and hope to be able to ruin all things. If there is anything carnal, sensual, devilish, or wicked, I seek after these things. Slide 18 Natural Woman? You young ladies have a profound influence on young, masculine behavior. Young men wear clothes they think you like. Their hair will be cut to please you. You can control how fast they drive their cars if you want. They will dress as grubby as you like. Your influence will be as though flowing from the stars to affect the actions of men. Elder David B. Haight, Young WomenReal Guardians, Ensign, Nov 1977 Slide 19 Teenage Affluenza http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFZz6ICzpjI Slide 20 President David O. McKay : The purpose of the gospel is to make bad men good and good men better and to change human nature (from the film Every Member a Missionary, as acknowledged by Franklin D. Richards, CR, October 1965, pp. 136-137; see also Brigham Young, JD 8:130 [22 July 1860]). Slide 21 Now I do not believe the word bad in this statement connotes only wicked, awful, horrible, or inherently evil. I think he was suggesting that the journey from bad to good is the process of putting off the natural man or the natural woman in each of usthrough the redeeming and cleansing power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. David A. Bednar, In the Strength of the Lord, BYU Devotional, October 2001 Slide 22 The putting off of the natural man makes possible the putting on of the whole armor of God, which would not fully fit before!
