Pentecost XIX: Bottom Line Spirituality

Unlocking the Gospel Secrets of Spirituality

Discover what difference reading these scriptures in a Worldly or a Godly way make.


Spiritual language is natural, conscious and innate. It is not something we learn, it is something we discover. This language is not rationally taught but consciously remembered.

Take time to sense the godly Presence within when a spiritual word is added to the rational, worldly reading of scripture.

Worldly Flesh is physical, Godly flesh is spiritual.

OLD TESTAMENT: Genesis 2:18-24

Worldly: They became one flesh.
Godly: They became spiritually one flesh.


Worldly sees what a person has done physically. Godly sees who they are spiritually.


Worldy: What is man that you should be mindful of him?
Godly: What is man that you should be mindful of him spiritually?


Worldly waits to hear the vocal word of God; Godly opens the heart of sense the Wisdom of God.

EPISTLE: Hebrews 1:1-4, 2:5-12

Worldy: He has spoken to us by His Son.
Godly: He has spoken to us spiritually by His Son.


A worldly heart is hardened by what they think they feel about the event. A godly heart is hardened by not feeling the Presence in the event.

GOSPEL: Mark 10:2-16

Worldly: It was because your hearts were hardened that Moses wrote you this law.
Godly: It was because your hearts were spiritually hardened that Moses wrote you the Law.
