Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 2:15


2:15 But the spiritual man - He that hath the Spirit. Discerneth all the things of God whereof we have been speaking. Yet he himself is discerned by no man - No natural men. They neither understand what he is, nor what he says.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 2:15


1Co 2:15 He that is spiritual. He who lives the spiritual life. Judgeth all things. "Examineth", in the margin of the Revised Version. The spiritual man, helped by the indwelling Spirit, is prepared to study the deeper truths of the Spirit. Yet he himself is judged of no man. None who are not spiritual are able to sit in judgment upon his higher life. He is on a higher level, and the animal man, from his lower level, cannot well estimate him.

    As we align our lives with the Bible and make a dedication to Jehovah God, we are able to receive his spirit. This is a great source of protection to Christians. This allows us to see the world from spiritual perspective, gaining the mind of Christ. Thus we can make decisions that will draw us closer to God, and resist Satan's evil spirit of the world.

    We can't have a good relationship with Jehovah God while manifesting the characteristics of the spirit of the world.

    We can fully understand the mind of God - as He has revealed it to us in His Word, but when we get to heaven - there will be so much more we will know of Him; " ... now we see thru a glass darkly, but then face to face."
