“And, I brethren (brothers in Christ) could not speak unto you as unto Spiritual (Christians), but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with solid food; for to this time ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. For ye are yet carnal….” (New Scofield Reference Edition (1967) Oxford University Press.

There are Christians like this today. They are content to be Christians and only are concerned with the basics of the Christian life, not the meat of the Word of God. Milk is easy to swallow. Meat must be chewed or thought about. It takes time to think about deeper truths from the Scriptures. God desires for baby Christians to grow to adulthood Spiritually, not remain babies all of their lives.
