Although at times Munzinger's unpacking of assertions is more suggestive than final, his work stimulates fruitful paths for understanding how Paul expected the believing community to do the work of discernment beyond the obvious, direct teaching of Scripture. His developing paradigm may assist the current evangelical debate about when and how to "go beyond the Bible" in making truth and ethical judgments.

How did Paul determine ethical and theological truth? Were all believers expected to be able to 'discern the spirits' (1 Corinthians 12.10)? This 2007 study shows that discernment must be understood against the backdrop of an extensive hermeneutic, by which Paul inherently relates ethical and theological knowledge. Understanding the will of God requires noetic and existential transformation, in short, the 'renewal of the mind' (Romans 12.2). Munzinger argues that Paul implies a process of inspiration in which the Spirit sharpens the discerning functions of the mind because the believer is liberated from a value system dominated by status and performance. The love of God enables all believers to learn to interpret reality in a transformed manner and to develop creative solutions to questions facing their communities. For Paul authentic discernment is linked to a comprehensive sense of meaning.
