Bible: 1 Cor 2:14-3:4

2:14 The unbeliever 1  does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him. And he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 2:15 The one who is spiritual discerns 2  all things, yet he himself is understood 3  by no one. 2:16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to advise him? 4  But we have the mind of Christ.

Immaturity and Self-deception

3:1 So, brothers and sisters, 5  I could not speak to you as spiritual people, but instead as people of the flesh, 6  as infants in Christ. 3:2 I fed you milk, 7  not solid food, for you were not yet ready. In fact, you are still not ready, 3:3 for you are still influenced by the flesh. 8  For since there is still jealousy and dissension among you, are you not influenced by the flesh and behaving like unregenerate people? 9  3:4 For whenever someone says, “I am with Paul,” or “I am with Apollos,” are you not merely human? 10
