Pseudo Spirituality

VERSE: “18 Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind. 19 They have lost connection with the head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.” — Colossians 2:18-19

Christians have a genuine relationship with Christ, and Christian spirituality involves drawing near to Him daily in prayer and being used in God-given gifts. Nevertheless, there are counterfeits of this spirituality – counterfeits that often make people feel and appear as though they possess an elevated other-worldliness that surpasses the humdrum, banal experience of “less spiritual” believers.

Pastor David Kowalski states in his post Pseudo-Spirituality, “The pseudo-spiritual believer seems to exude an air of superiority over “ordinary” Christians who are just too down to earth. This results in the pseudo-spiritual achieving a status among the naive as people living on a higher, spiritual plane.

I have observed this phenomenon many times, and although demonic spirits may be involved in sidetracking Christian spirituality, I believe the root of most pseudo-spirituality is pride. Paul spoke of a “puffed up” spirit that inspired the purported revelations of people in the church who thought themselves to be super-spiritual.”

Please read Colossians 2.
