Divine truth is of the nature of spirit and for that reason can only be received by spiritual revelation. God's thoughts belong to the world of spirit, man's to the world of intellect, and while spirit can embrace intellect, the human intellect can never comprehend spirit. Man's thoughts cannot cross over into God's. God made man in His own image and placed a organ, within him, whereby he could know spiritual things. When Adam sinned, that organ of GOD-KNOWLEDGE, within the human soul died. By reason man cannot know God, he can know only about God. This is why Regeneration is the first step of Redemption. In it, the organ of God-knowledge is renewed, so that the sinner can see, hear, and believe Divine truth.
