I will consider myself spiritual. I believe there is only one God!
The word spirit comes from the latin 'spiritus' - which means 'breath', 'wind', or simply 'moving air'.
Latin versions of the Bible only appeared after the Emperor Constantine: who was motivated by political expediency - not divine inspiration (he wasn't actually baptised until he was lying on his deathbed) - adopted Christanity as the official religion of the Roman Empire.
Prior to the latin versions you had the Greek which used 'pneuma' and - before that - the Hebrew which used 'ruah' or 'ruach': both words meaning breath, air etc.
The whole idea behind the concept of 'spirituality' - or that 'spirits' are disembodied souls - is totally fallacious: a fiction invented by literate priests to beguile their illiterate congregations.
There is nothing in the Bible to support such a concept.
A little of both. I don't believe in organized religion but I believe in God and the power of prayer in numbers.
Religion is for people afraid of going to hell. Spirituality is for those who have already been there.
