• Spiritual
  • No, it means a follower of Christ and His teachings.
  • No. Proof: see any standard English dictionary.
  • A spiritualist is one who believes in the counterfeit practice of communicating with the spirits of the dead. In actuality, the person calls on a familiar spirit (an evil spirit) that is familiar with and reproduces the mannerisms and characteristics of the person from when he was alive. One such example is the woman of Endor who claimed to bring up Samuel from the dead to speak to Saul. I Samuel 28:15 “And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up? And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more…” When a Christian is a believing believer, he abandons false practices such as spiritualism and seeks only God's help, knowing that only God, the father of our Lord Jesus Christ, fully understands the spiritual forces at work in the world. Having the gift of holy spirit, a Christian may grow to be more like Christ through God's mighty power and spiritual assistance. Although the understanding of the teaching has been mostly forgotten over the centuries, the Apostle Paul, in his first letter to the Corinthian believers, included a section regarding spiritual matters that we reference today as Chapters 12, 13, and 14. In it, Paul stated: I Corinthians 14:37 “If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.”
