The Sweet Dropper: Knowledge of Spiritual Things vs. Spiritual Knowledge

For, beloved, the knowledge that must save us must not only be of divine things, but it must be divine; it must not only be of spiritual things, but it must be spiritual. The light that we have of spiritual things must be answerable to the things; we must see them by their own light. We cannot know spiritual and heavenly things by a human light; but as the things themselves are spiritual, so we must have the Spirit of God, that by it we may come to know spiritual things spiritually.  – Richard Sibbes, An Exposition of 2 Corinthians 1
