When you state " we can learn to discern between the two" what faculty of discernment are you referring to other then the mind? In other words, where do you experience the "inner voice" other then in your mind? Perhaps the inner voice may be realized in the mind during a hazardous situation, before one's thoughts have had time to catch up. Nevertheless, both the voice and the thoughts occur in the mind or synonymously in one's consciousness.
It's hard to define. Just that I think my experience and the experience of others (not necessarily Christians) is they discern something more than or deeper than the mind, of which they use various means to "tap into" it.
