Another Objection to Allegory

The allegorizers believe that the Holy Spirit reveals to the serious student the things of the Spirit, so that he may understand the mysterious secrets that are hidden beneath the surface of the words.

Here the writer is denying the role of the Spirit in understanding the Bible. But is any proof offered? No. Is there any scripture offered to support this? No. And what does the Bible say?

1Co 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
