[1 Corinthians 2:12 KJV] Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
[1 Cor 2:12 mGNT] ἡμεῖς δὲ οὐ τὸ πνεῦμα τοῦ κόσμου ἐλάβομεν ἀλλὰ τὸ πνεῦμα τὸ ἐκ τοῦ θεοῦ ἵνα εἰδῶμεν τὰ ὑπὸ τοῦ θεοῦ χαρισθέντα ἡμῖν
Is there an "anti-spirit" ala God's spirit that permeates the whole KOSMOS? What is the KOSMOS in this passage?
Pauline, so very likely related:
[Ephesians 2:2 KJV] Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Johannine so possibly related:
[1 John 4:1 KJV] Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
[1 John 4:3 KJV] And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
