The unspiritual Man

1 Cor. 2: 10b-16

St. Paul in his letter to the Corinthians says the unspiritual man does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God. Then who can receive the spirit of God, it is the spiritual man who can receive the spirit of God.

How do we know one is spiritual man, I feel we often mistake between the spiritual man and the religious man, there is a lot of difference between, being spiritual and religious. One does become spiritual because he is religious; the spirituality had nothing to do with the cult. However sometimes it can express itself in cult (but rarely). Then who is a Spiritual man? The reading of today end saying it is the one who have the mind of Christ. Having the mind of Christ is the secret to become spiritual; it is not external expression of faith rather external actions of charity rooted in the love of Christ.
