We have listed quite a few stumbling blocks, and gone into detail on some. We started by looking at why you should avoid foolish disputes. There we saw that it's pointless to debate the immature believer. This is because they are still babes feeding on the milk. The mature are those who feed on the meat. They can hear the Spirit by the hearing of Faith. This lets them receive divine revelation.
Immaturity is associated with lack of faith and or lack of wisdom. Maturity speaks of the wisdom that comes by faith. The mature have the letter of the law and the Spirit. The letter is supposed to lead you to Christ.
Gal 3:24 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
And if you are really seeking, the Spirit will bring life to the word.
The Key of Knowledge is to seek it, that is to seek the Lord. The stumbling blocks are things that keep you from going on to maturity. They can be ideas or methods like the sacred cows we mentioned. They can actually discourage you from seeking, or lead you into depending on some fruitless method based on worldly thinking. Other stumbling blocks can be one or more of a set of attitudes which hinder or prevent you from fellowship with the Spirit. Or they may quench or grieve the Spirit. This in turn stymies spiritual growth.
