Spiritually Appraised

“The apostle’s whole object is to prove that the reason of man can neither discover the truths of the gospel, nor receive them with delight when they are revealed. These truths are hidden from those who depend on their own reason (Matt. 11:25). The reason the natural man cannot appreciate and welcome these things is because ‘they are spiritually appraised,’ i.e., they are understood and valued only by those who are under the influence of the Holy Spirit.” — Notes by Mike Stohlmeyer on Charles Hodge “1 & 2 Corinthians” (Banner of Truth) p. 42 (on 1 Cor. 2:14)

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
