The natural man doesn’t receive the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness to him. He can’t understand because they are Spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14
He that reproves a scorner gets to himself shame.
He that rebukes a wicked man gets himself a blot.
Reprove not a scorner lest he hate you.
Rebuke a wise man and he will love you.
Give instruction to a wise man and he will be yet wiser.
Teach a just man and he will increase in learning. Prov. 9:7-9
