We believe that spirituality is an absolute. A believer is either spiritual or carnal at any given moment in time. One cannot be both spiritual and carnal simultaneously. When a believer confesses his sin(s) to God the Father then he is forgiven and cleansed from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). The filling of the Spirit then occurs and the Spirit is then able to teach the believer the truths of the Word of God (Ephesians 5:18; Romans 5:5). The filling of the Spirit is not an emotional or ecstatic experience. It has nothing to do with speaking in tongues, seeing visions, or hearing voices. Rather, it is an absolute which is described in the Bible by synonyms such as “yield” (Romans 6:11-13), “confess” (1 John 1:9), “present” (Romans 6:13), “mortify yourselves” (Colossians 3:5), “strengthen the hands that hang down” (Hebrews 12:12), “walking in the light” (I John 1:7), “awake you that sleep” (Ephesians 5:14), and “judge yourselves” (1 Corinthians 11:31–32). All spiritual production in time depends upon the filling of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22–23).
Love is a fruit of the Spirit and therefore true spirituality is described in 1 Corinthians 13.
