3. What is one way Paul describes those who are enemies of the cross? How is that contrasted with believers in this passage?

4. Some people accuse Christians of being so “heavenly minded” that they are useless and negligent in the issues that the world faces. Is Paul’s insistence that we remember our "heavenly citizenship" and "remain true to the Lord" a help or hindrance to our ability to do good in this world?
