This is the third post in a series.
When religious persons say that this or that book of the Holy Scriptures is “not inspired” or they hold it so cheap with the thought that, well, there’s a Bible in every hotel room, or it’s something to be peddled door to door, or sold as a paperpack on the grocery store shelf, it is clear that they are of the sort who mind the things of the flesh, when they are not in the Spirit — or not inspired — by the holy writings.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.Romans 8:1–7
The Song of Songs is not a fleshly or a carnal song, as it is sometimes made to appear, in a false and garish light, to the uninspired, but it is in fact that high and holy song of the elect.
And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.Revelation 14:3
