The Spiritual life that God has provided just for you has all the solutions to every single problem you will ever face.

Sweetness of personality and morality of life are the superficial concepts to most Christians of what it means to live the Spiritual life.

How do you recognize that you have fallen into this idiotic way of thinking that a person is spiritual because of their personality?

If you start out the Christian life and you immediately encounter someone with whom you have rapport, it is inevitable that you will probably think that that’s what a spiritual person should be like.

At that point, you are immediately in a system of pseudo-spirituality.

That is not the enabling power of the Holy Spirit,
it is personality imitation.

For instance, mannerisms of dress, wearing black or dull colors is suppose to be spiritual or considering bright colors to be worldly.

DEU 22:5 “A woman shall not wear man’s clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman’s clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to
the Lord your God.”

This statement has nothing to do with being spiritual it had to do with guidelines for a client nation.

DEU 23:1 No one who is emasculated, or has his male organ cut off, shall enter the assembly of the Lord.

You have to know the context and why
things are said.

1TI 2:9 Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments;

A woman’s true beauty depends upon what their man thinks, not what men think.

As a Christian soldier, God has given you your very own spiritual life, and you are the only one who can live it.

God has provided for every believer his very own spiritual life with a uniform set of principles and divine mandates, and a means of glorifying Him.

No one has the right to try and bully you into changing your personality until you fit into their mold.

It is a uniform system of biblical mandates and biblical principles, not designed to change your personality, but designed to glorify God as He intended it to be.

A portfolio is a portable case for holding material, such as loose papers, photographs, or drawings.

Inside a portfolio, there are usually materials which represent a person’s work, their resources, their investments
and their assets.
