1Co:2:14: But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
Unless you're born again and have accepted Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, you cannot understand His Word.
( Gerald Vann, The Pain of Christ and the Sorrow of God)
There can be a state of soul against which Love itself is powerless because it has hardened itself against Love,. Hell is essentially a state of being which we fashion for ourselves: a state of final separateness from God which is the result not of God’s denial of man, but man’s denial of God, and a denial which is eternal precisely because it has become, in itself, immovable.
There are analogies in human experience: the hate which so blind, so dark, that Love only makes it more violent; the pride which is so strong that humility only makes it more scornful, the apathy- last but not least- the apathy- which has so taken possession of the personality, that no crisis, no appeal, no inducement whatsoever, can stir it into activity, but on the contrary makes it bury itself the more deeply in its immobility. So with the soul and God; pride can become hardened into hell, hatred can become hardened into hell, any of the 7 roots of wrongdoing can harden into hell, and not least sloth which is boredom with divine things, the apathy that cannot be troubled to repent, even though it sees the abyss into which the soul is falling, because for so long, in little ways perhaps, it has accustomed itself to refuse whatever might cost it any effort. May God in His mercy save us from that.
In this age of apostasy, one form of rebellion is a religious spirit, which can manifest and seek to undermine the Church. This spirit is at the very core of the disunity in our churches. Because it cloaks itself in righteousness it’s all the more destructive having worked itself in to the very heart of our churches.
This religious spirit is grouped with and displayed in: ritualism, formalism, legalism, doctrinal obsession, seduction, fear of God, fear of Hell, fear of lost salvation, and doctrinal error.
Religious error is a broad designation embracing false religions, Christian Cults, occult practices and false doctrines.
***Often a person in religious error will claim a special insight to the Scriptures, claim a special status and look down at others thinking himself superior in spiritual knowledge.
Involvement with any of these sources of error can give legal grounds to the enemy. The association or contact need not be extensive, and can open the door to evil spirits. Any Christian who has and involvement with any kind of religious error needs to renounce it.
Often deliverance is needed to free that person from oppression.
The religious error demons have been found to cause: mental confusion, binding of the mind, dullness of comprehension, depression, fears, physical pain, physical illness, false pride, un-teachableness, resistance to Biblical truth and spiritual hindrances, as to prayer, Bible reading, sermon listening , gifts of the Spirit and faith.
M't:12:31: Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
M't:12:32: And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
