Spirituality is the process of a life lived from the vision of faith. This holds hope out of this world.
Carnality is the process of a life lived with the vision of flesh. This holds the greed of this world.
The flesh hates the soul and wars against it. ~ Diognetus c.175 AD
The observances of my soul so dearly desire to quench the demands of my flesh, yet my flesh reciprocates with an even greater fury.
Through devotion the bad breath of my body is expelled into the purified breath of my spirit, but this foul breath still seeks to rule.
This would-be master of me dictates so loudly, while the servant-in-me only speaks with hushed tones.
The Spirit of Christ now living with my spirit in my body, quietly invites self-mastery. But my vulgar flesh bosses it away.
The vision of faith is to succour my soul, the vision of flesh is to destroy my soul.
O that the din of sin from within will no longer defeat the whispers of Heaven from without.
Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. (Romans 7:20)
