People who follow their natural instinct do not have God’s Spirit in them. They do whatever their instincts tell them. These people are the ones who are creating divisions among you. They scoff at things they do not understand. These people are not spiritual and that’s why they cannot receive the truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means.
Spiritual people do not use
words that come from human wisdom. Instead, they speak words given to
them by the Spirit, using the Spirit’s words to explain spiritual
truths. Those who are spiritual can evaluate all things, but they
themselves cannot be evaluated by others!
People who follow their
natural instinct belong to this world, they speak from the world’s
viewpoint, and the world listens to them. But people who are spiritual
belong to God, and those who know God listens to them. If they do not
belong to God, they will not listen to them. That is how we know if
someone has the Spirit of truth or the spirit of deception!
