1 Both the translators of the Authorized Version and the Revised Version, and even the translators of the American Revision, seem to have lost sight of the context, for while they spell |Spirit| in the third verse with a capital, in the sixth verse, in all three versions it is spelled with a small |s.|
2 The ministry of many an orthodox preacher and teacher is a ministry of death. It is true that the Word of the Gospel is preached but it is preached with enticing words of man's wisdom and not in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power (1 Cor. ii.4). The Gospel comes in word only and not in power and in the Holy Spirit (1 Thess. i.5).
