 The Letter And The Spirit
For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God…Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
In Greek, the expression “of the letter” in verse 6 and “letters” in verse 7 are two forms of the word “gramma”.
This notion of the “Spirit of the Word” is usually advocated by those who teach unbiblical heretical ideas which are based on verses taken out of context and which are contrary to other verses in the written Word of God on the same topic.

 Blue Letter Bible - Devotionals
The "letter versus the Spirit" is another contrast between living by the old covenant or by the new.
A life that is being developed "of the letter" is one that is built on rules and regulations.
"For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is that circumcision which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, and not in the letter." (Romans 2:28-29).

His writing flows with the spontaneity of the fruits of the life of faith, and for him obedience to Christ's commandments is not legalism, but the loving response of the believer who has recognized God's Son as Redeemer and as Lord.
Commendable is the continued openness to consider life-style and ethical issues, to receive such new light as the Spirit of God may grant to those who take their Christian walk seriously.

 Flesh Versus Spirit
Moral laws being the "letters" make the men of letters arrogant or swollen headed as the Pharisee Simon who invited Jesus into his house was; whilst the matters of spirit being common sense make appeal to ones heart e.g.
Thus, the Jews were and they are still the men of "letters" whilst the Samaritans who were not allowed to the inner circle of the Temple had the moral laws written over their hearts in spirit.
Royal Priests of God are called the "Christs"; those with the "erring spirit of man" are called the "christs" and they are the younger Brethren of Jesus whilst those with the non-erring "Spirit of God" like the Apostles were are called the "Christs" and they are the Twin Brethren of Jesus, the anointed Christ.

The 'spirit' versus the 'letter' of the law
The Pharisees exhibit a fundamental aspect of legalism here in that they miss the intention or "spirit" of the law, and focus on the "letter." In essence, the Law is treated as an end in itself while the spirit behind it is missed.

 Someplace Somewhere - The spirit versus text of law   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Personally, I find more and more law seems to shift toward preventative protectionism, where one is not given the benefit of the doubt in matters of person and property, versus actions affecting public interest.
In regards to the former I consider it safe to judiciously break the tenets that are selectively enforced as a means of tacking on charges to flagrant violations, but am gravely respectful of the latter and cases where extremis in the former could impinge upon the latter.
I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual.

Paul aspires to be the minister “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).
Paul’s rhetorical figures distinguish the Torah as a “ministry of death, chiseled in letters on stone tablets,” from the Christian gospel as a “ministry of Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3.7).
The German Protestant theologian Martin Luther vehemently echoes Paul’s “letter versus spirit” rhetoric, and Librett shows the Reformation to be an important context for the (non)dialogue between Germans and Jews over Jewish emancipation and Christian-Jewish relations.

Here Paul is contrasting the two covenants--the tables of stone versus the tables of the heart, the letter versus the Spirit, the ministration of death versus the ministration of the Spirit, and the ministration of condemnation versus the ministration of righteousness.
The glory of His ministration of righteousness was so much greater than the glory of the law that it outshone and did away with the former glory.
On the tables of stone, the literal letter of the law demanded death.

 ec08b - Where can one find New Covenant's "law" in written form? Notes on Jeremiah 31:33 and the Holy Spirit. - ...
But, it is important to understand this: The phrase "the letter" in 2 Corinthians 3:6 refers to what had been written on the two tablets of stone, and to the law package which those tablets were only a part of.
The words "the ministration of the Spirit" (2 Corinthians 3:9) in their turn referred to the New Covenant, which is not written anywhere in a physical manner but is "written" in men's inner being by giving them the Holy Spirit.
And again, since it seems that the Holy Spirit is not being distributed here on Earth right now (which means that people cannot observe its nature and fruit in practise), it may for many people be hard to understand the full and true nature of the "writing" of the New Covenant.

 The Spirit of Jesus Versus the Cultic Spirit - by Robert Brinsmead
So the spirit of the Cult so far as being a bulwark and a defense against evil, a protection against sin—the spirit of the Cult itself is the expression par excellence of the thing that separates man from God.
But Jesus, of course, with his people-centered ethic, this spirit of Jesus, that will even bend the rule or break the rule, suspend the rule, whether it’s in the bible, whether it’s in the tradition of the cult—if the needs of people, if compassion demands it, Jesus subordinates everything to the needs of people.
The resurrection shows us that this is not the end of the Spirit of Christ; but by his death, and the dissolution that takes place in his death through his raising up in his resurrection, his Spirit is released.
