The natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him;
nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14
It would be foolish to hunt rabbits with a tank just as it is basically foolishness to hunt down a spiritual enemy with that same tank. No amount of radar or natural vision is going to find the enemy of our souls. The battle is a spiritual one which, as stated above in the verse; the enemy is spiritually discerned.
The things of the Creator God are foolishness to the natural mind. One can only grasp the magnitude of Jesus on the cross to pay for something I am going to do two thousand years later if he/she has had an encounter with that same Jesus who was raised from the dead and sits at the right hand of God Himself.
