 14 But the natural man cannot receive the things of the Spirit of God5 for they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. [The typical sect-attending Christian has no concept of sin, limiting it to murder, theft, rape; he is unaware that intolerable sin includes: adultery, pre-marital sex, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, partying; also immorality, impurity, greed, and evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness.]

 15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged by no man.

5 A natural man cannot believe or understand the mysteries of God. It is impossible for a natural man to become a spiritual man by reading, Bible study, seminary training, Bible college, praying for understanding, or listening to other natural men talk; such only increases his fleshly knowledge, which must die to be replaced by wisdom from above. A natural man is only changed into a spiritual man by the teachings and changing grace of the Spirit of God, through revelation and power. Of course God only reveals the mysteries to spiritual men. But also, God reveals unrighteousness to the spiritual man. The natural man cannot accept the things of God and cannot see the depth of unrighteousness. This is a basic function of the Holy Spirit — to convince the world of sin [unrighteousness]. The typical sect-attending Christian has no concept of sin, limiting sin to murder, theft, rape; he is unaware that intolerable sin includes: adultery, pre-marital sex, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, partyingimmorality, impurity, greedevil thoughts, fornications, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. From the Word of the Lord within: "Every thought of man is at best a vain hiss." All other understandings from God, have to be shown to a man by God, before a man can see sin and unrighteousness. What is to be known of God, is revealed by God within a man's heart; (mark!), not from reading a book; not from listening to a preacher speaking without words supplied by the Holy Spirit, as he speaks. The natural man must be taught by revelation in that man's heart in the power of the Holy Spirit; words must be heard, and/or visions must be seen, with clear understanding received in a man's heart.
