2:6-9 "Those who receive the doctrine of Christ as Divine, and, having been enlightened by the Holy Spirit..." [1] Keys to the Kingdom[2]
2:10-16 "The pride of carnal reasoning is really as much opposed to spirituality, as the basest sensuality." [1]
"But the carnal man is a stranger to the principles, and pleasures, and actings of the Divine life. The spiritual man only, is the person to whom God gives the knowledge of his will. How little have any known of the mind of God by natural power! And the apostles were enabled by his Spirit to make known his mind. In the Holy Scriptures, the mind of Christ, and the mind of God in Christ, are fully made known to us."[1]
2:11 "spirit of man... Spirit of God."
2:12 "spirit of the world"
2:14 "the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him"
Can the "the mind of Christ, and the mind of God in Christ" be "fully made known to us" through "the Holy Scriptures" or through the "Holy Spirit"?
Can any man read "the Holy Scriptures" without using "The pride of carnal reasoning" which is "opposed to spirituality"?
How do you know if someone is listening to the true "Holy Spirit" except by what they do?
Are you a doer of the word or are you making the word of God to none effect by your corban?
1 ¶ And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.

2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power[3]: 5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom[4] of men, but in the power[3] of God.

6 ¶ Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world [aion], nor of the princes of this world [aion], that come to nought: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world [aion] unto our glory: 8 Which none of the princes of this world [aion] knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.[5] 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind[6] of Christ.
