    Many teach "forms" of religion and "forms" of godliness but have no understanding of what empowers true religion and godliness. Some would teach suffering but have no concept that its Gods grace flowing and empowering the believer to endure that which we sometimes endure. Some would teach moral conduct but have no understanding that true moral conduct is a fruit of the Spirit not a work of mans efforts. It is ONLY when we walk in the Spirit that the flesh is brought into submission. Many would teach to deny the flesh but have no understanding of how to empower others in the Spirit. Its dead religion, it has no value before God!
  2. 1Co 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

    To "walk in the Spirit" is to walk in a supernatural peace, joy and confidence in Gods righteousness, not to go about to establish our own. Only grace can empower true godliness, apart from grace there is only a false fa├žade of godliness. Its just a "form'' of godliness, an appearance that has no power. True godliness comes when we come to understand and have no confidence in our own ability, no confidence in the flesh. Religion teaches to attempt to justify that which God has already condemned, mans efforts at righteousness. Only when we receive from heaven the grace of God that empowers us to live godly, have we entered into true godliness.
  3. Joh 1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
    17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

    If one is not walking in the empowering grace of God, you are not walking in truth.....your in the flesh!
  4. Ga 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

    Look guys..this is it! There is no other way to live godly, there is no other way to overcome the flesh!
    If you don't know or understand how to consistently "walk in the Spirit"? Get out of your pride and humble yourself enough to learn from those God has called to teach the true way. Its your pride that dwells in YOUR flesh that causes you to stumble.
