Context Readings

The Wisdom Revealed By The Spirit

14 A person who isn't spiritual doesn't accept the things of God's Spirit, for they are nonsense to him. He can't understand them because they are spiritually evaluated. 15 The spiritual person evaluates everything but is subject to no one else's evaluation. 16 For "Who has known the mind of the Lord so that he can advise him?" However, we have the mind of the Messiah.
