Philippians 3:18-19, “(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)”
How many people these days mind earthly things? We all do to some extent, because we have to; but the heathen world live for earthly things. Jesus taught in Luke 8:12-15 about the four different types of seeds, likening them to people.
The first group didn't get saved, because like children who are taught the malicious lies of evolution in America's classrooms, Satan takes away the seed of God's Word from their heart.The second group get saved, but have no roots, so they quit at the first sign of persecution. These are some of the Pharisees who got saved, but because they feared man, so they didn't tell anyone (John 12:42-43).The third group of seeds are those believers who are CHOKED BY THE CARES, RICHES AND PLEASURES of this world. This is Demas who forsook Paul, “having loved this present world” (2nd Timothy 4:10).The fourth group of seeds are those believers with AN HONEST AND GOOD HEART (Luke 8:15) who obey the Bible and are soul-winners (preaching the gospel to try to get people saved).
