Brothers, I couldn't talk to you as spiritual people but as worldly people, as mere infants in the Messiah. I gave you milk to drink, not solid food, because you weren't ready for it. And you're still not ready! That's because you are still worldly. As long as there is jealousy and quarreling among you, you are worldly and living by human standards, aren't you?

It refuses to submit to the authority of God's Law because it is powerless to do so.
