What’s the matter with these people?

Peanut Gallery: Have you ever wondered why some people just don’t get it… even on the simplest level, eg the fundamental right to life? Here’s an insight from the Apostle Paul –

1 Corinthians 2:14
English Standard Version (ESV)

14 The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.

1 Corinthians 2:14
J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

14-16 But the unspiritual man simply cannot accept the matters which the Spirit deals with—they just don’t make sense to him, for, after all, you must be spiritual to see spiritual things. The spiritual man, on the other hand, has an insight into the meaning of everything, though his insight may baffle the man of the world. This is because the former is sharing in God’s wisdom, and ‘Who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?’ Incredible as it may sound, we who are spiritual have the very thoughts of Christ!
