Natural is the rendering in the A.V. of the N.T. for two Greek words of somewhat kindred signification:
1, as opposed to artificial, φυσιχός, applied only to the animal nature of men (Ro 1:26-27; Jude 1:10) or beasts (2Pe 2:12);
2, as opposed to spiritual, ψυχικός, applied to inanimate objects (1Co 15:44,46), and to men in their unconverated state (1Co 2:14), or as depraved (Jas 3:15; Jude 1:19). SEE CARNAL.
