The danger today is that believers hear God’s Word, read the Bible or seek the Truth with only the wisdom of the mind.
God joins His Word and His Spirit together, but men will either separate His Word from His Spirit or His Spirit from His Word.
The peril of these two extremes is equally as great in either direction.
For in separating the Word of God from the Spirit of God, what the person obtains will be mere idea or an ideal.
And in separating the Spirit of God from the Word of God, what that person becomes will be an oddity.
More people fall into the trap of the first extreme than into the trap of the second.
