“He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”- 2 Corinthians 3:6
In this verse Paul is talking about not sticking to the letter of the law but the spirit of it, because it is the spirit of it that enables us to put the law into our context.
The letter (through research by a renowned scientist) said that the black race was inferior even genetically. But the spirit said, 'Yes we can!' Joe Lewis showed Hitler that we could. Tiger Woods pointed golf in the right direction. Lewis Hamilton put some color into F1 and now Obama rules the world.
The spirit says we are all children of good. No Jews or Gentiles. Joe Lewis, Tiger Woods, Lewis Hamilton and Barrack Husein Obama are all mixed race people. Now that there is further proof of our oneness.
