The True Knowledge of Christ

"The true wisdom, the true light, the true knowledge of Christ, is like the manna in the wilderness; it daily comes down from heaven, and must daily be gathered fresh.  The true light springs from the life; and it must be held in the life, in the vessel which the life forms, in the new bottle, in the new understanding; not in the fleshly part, no, not in the natural part for as the natural man cannot receive the things of the Spirit, I Cor 2: 14, so neither can he retain them."

--Isaac Penington

I Corinthians 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."
