Unbelievers Do Not Understand Christians
“He that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.” That means that when people are born again and become Christians, they have the Spirit in them; they have an understanding, but other people cannot understand them.
The true Christian is a problem to everybody who is not a Christian, and this again, of course, is one of the best tests we can ever apply to ourselves. If people can understand you in total, you are not a Christian. The Christian is a mystery. The Christian is an enigma. He must be. You cannot have the life of God put into you and remain as you were. You become strange. There is a difference; something has happened. “How can these things be?” they say. They do not understand you. They see what has happened to you. They see what you are, but they do not understand.
