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!
