Most religions and their denominations have a common definition of spirituality hence spiritual maturation: that you must do good deeds. Well, that's done with a body, so an 'unbeliever' can do them also. So how can something you do with your mere body, be spiritual?
Then if that's not spiritual, what is? What should the term 'spiritual', even mean? Can't be a feeling, because bodies feel (your thoughts aren't feelings), and any 'unbeliever' can have the same feelings. So then what? Thrash this out?
If you seek ideas to brainstorm, well.. I've been thrashing out this question for 15 years. Webpages start at LordvSatan1.htm
, which begins the massive Lord v Satan series, which started back in April 2000. Youtube and vimeo videos are many. Chief among them are the Spiritual Maturation videos
, and also in vimeo, the God Deeds audio series (which started in Youtube), latest 'Episode 13' subseries, here
If you want a one-line summary of what I've learned it to be, the answer is Getting His Head into Your Head
. Bible learned and lived on, line by line and precept by precept. Basic mechanic of God's System
. (Underlying webpage is here
, with more videos.)
Oh, and that really does equal 42, a 'generating growth' Bible Hebrew/Greek meter from Genesis forward (click here
for how Isaiah 53 uses it to play on Moses' usage in Psalm 90
, which plays back to Genesis meter
), to remind the reader of Jacob's two families for the 21 years he spent working for Laban.
That time-grant topic for the multiplication of sons
(heh) gets covered at length here
. Root webpage on Jacob, is here
So it's not how right you are, nor how much you compare favorably versus others.. but whether you are growing in God's System. Shock, huh.
Now, maybe you disagree with that, or want to debate/discuss. Fine: that's the purpose for this subforum! OR, for anything you prefer to discuss, on the same what is spiritual
