The Wisdom Revealed By The Spirit

14 Now the natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he is unable to understand because they are evaluated spiritually. 15 But truly the spiritual man evaluates all things, but he himself is evaluated by none. 16 For who has known the mind of Lord that he will stand with him? But we have the mind of Christ.
