The Definition of Double-Minded

Perhaps the clearest example of a double-minded person is found at the base of the Mount of Transfiguration when Jesus met the father with a demon-possessed son. The distraught man admitted, "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief (Mark 9:24)." Double-minded refers to a condition in which an individual literally has two souls. Part of them believes God, and part of them doesn't. Sometimes they walk by faith, and other times they walk by sight. The double-minded fluctuate between godliness and worldliness.
