What does it mean to be a truly spiritual Christian?

At a time when there is no shortage of answers competing for our attention, how do we know what really is from God?

This book looks for answers in the Bible, focusing on Paul's first letter to the church in Corinth. The Corinthians really thought they had arrived. By contrast, Paul was unspiritual, ignorant, weak and foolish.

Paul writes a strongly corrective letter, not simply to defend his reputation but to restore them to true Christian faith. He picks up the words that they themselves use and says, 'This knowledge, power and wisdom you claim to have are not the real thing. What you call spirituality is worldly. You are being directed by the mindset of the non-Christian world rather than by the Holy Spirit.'

That challenge still applies. Paul's appeal is God's appeal to us. We too need to repent of inadequate understandings of what it means to live by the Spirit and instead embrace true spirituality.

Biblical and practical spirituality
5 stars By Hoa, Jun 04 2016
Many ideas and practices are popular when it comes to Christian spirituality. True Spirituality explains and makes clear the message of 1 Corinthians to help readers know what it means to be truly a spiritual Christian. Roberts is refreshingly clear as he explains from the Bible what means to be spiritual in various areas of life, including teachers, gifts, marriage, freedom and more. He first explains what the text of 1 Corinthians means, before drawing helpful applications for Christians today. Highly recommended for all Christians.
