Non-Christians cannot understand the Bible.

 

A natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them.
1 Corinthians 2:14

The reason we have any understanding at all of God’s word is because the Holy Spirit, living in us, discloses His truth to us (John 16:13). The natural man, or unsaved man/woman, does not have the Spirit of God living inside and therefore has no spiritual discernment or understanding.

“…whenever Moses (scripture) is read, a veil lies over their heart; but whenever a man turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”
2 Corinthians 3:15,16

“…the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things.”
John 14:26

So, when you see a non-Christian trying to figure out the Bible, or eternal things, realize they CAN’T understand what you know.

 “And the Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.”
2 Timothy 2:24-26

From Good Morning, LORD!
