1 Corinthians 2:15-16J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

 

14-16 But the unspiritual man simply cannot accept the matters which the Spirit deals with—they just don’t make sense to him, for, after all, you must be spiritual to see spiritual things. The spiritual man, on the other hand, has an insight into the meaning of everything, though his insight may baffle the man of the world. This is because the former is sharing in God’s wisdom, and ‘Who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?’ Incredible as it may sound, we who are spiritual have the very thoughts of Christ!

 

 

The mature believer has a receiver for spiritual radio waves and his receiver is tuned in. He can therefore discern, appreciate, and understand the essence of spiritual truth. That means that we really can exercise moral judgment, because we have thoroughly studied the mind of the Lord in the Old and New Testaments. We have prayed about difficult issues and have examined them from every side; we have put them through the grid of biblical absolutes. Therefore, we have the courage to take a position on values and issues that the natural world is totally confused about. We have the courage to speak out on the wrongness of abortion, the destructiveness of the homosexual lifestyle, and the sins of materialism, racial bigotry, and oppression of the poor and needy.

 

Yes we get criticized by non-believers, and yes Christians still do stupid things, but because of the Word of God being a vital part of our lives we have an insight into our own human nature that the non-believer will never understand; because to them everything is relative, whereas to us it is written in stone and absolute.

But we need to make sure that we never come across as arrogant or sanctimonious, we are still struggling with sin in our lives and none of us are perfect, that’s why we need saved every day and our relation with God renewed every day.
