    "Spirituality" for certain!  In John 4:23-24 Jesus said "But the hour cometh, and NOW IS, when the TRUE WORSHIPERS shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father SEEKETH such to worship Him.  God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him MUST worship Him in spirit and in truth."

    Saints, the New Covenant is AN ALL SPIRITUAL COVENANT.  For there is NOTHING one "...can do in the 'flesh' to please GOD" (Romans 8:8)!  Let me show you why:  Jeremiah 31:33 spoke of the New Covenant wherein GOD would "put His laws in our hearts and minds!"  He 'Promised' the Holy Spirit to do that (John 14:26;16:13) which He fulfilled on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:2)!  He began "putting His laws on our hearts and minds" afterwards (After He ascended) via the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:2)!  He did it 'back then' and He does it 'TODAY' (Hebrews 13:8)!

    RELIGION teaches we're under the New Covenant but remain under the Old Covenant in "sacrifices and offerings" of water baptism and the Holy Eucharist (aka Communion)!  GOD is NOT pleased (Romans 8:8)!

    Acts 17:23-25 says "For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD.  Whom therefore ye IGNORANTLY worship, him declare I unto you.  GOD that made the world and all things therein, seeing the He is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth NOT in temples made with hands; (v25) NEITHER IS WORSHIPED WITH MEN'S HANDS, AS THOUGH HE NEEDED ANY THING, seeing He giveth to all life, and breath, and ALL THINGS."  Don't we use "men's hands" to water baptize and for the Holy Eucharist?  Why do RELIGIONIST continue to defy Scripture with "traditions" and/or "rituals?"  Don't they know they're defying the Word of GOD? 

    As I said in answering your other question, "proclaimed" Christians eating the Holy Eucharist; "They go in a hungry devil and come out a full devil and regarding baptism; They go down a devil and come up a 'wet' devil" with "sacrifices and offerings!"

    Hebrews 9:10-11 says "Which stood only in meats and drinks (Holy Eucharist), and divers washings (baptism and/or feet washing), and carnal ordinances (Both), IMPOSED ON THEM until the time of REFORMATION.  But CHRIST being an high priest of good things to come, by a GREATER and MORE PERFECT TABERNACLE, NOT MADE WITH 'HANDS,' that is to say, not of this building (flesh)."

    What in the devil are you saints doing?  Have you not read Scripture?  THE NEW COVENANT IS "AN ALL SPIRITUAL COVENANT" (John 4:23-24)!

      I went to sleep and woke up and GOD gave me a “Word” – “Inhabicommunicable!”
      HE said RELIGION is “Inhabicommunicable!”
      Romans 3:31 – “…we establish the law!”

    I lean with spirituality over religion, but see purpose for religion. But, I am not talking in the context of religion being an organizational authority regard God or gods. Rituals are actions of being religious, thus there is religion. In other words, rituals can be done religiously.

    Rituals, to me, are not habits. For instance, I make coffee every morning savoring its scent. I feel awake. Once poured I stand on the stoop outside the kitchen door sipping it and observe the morning. I am alive today. And, I am part of something greater than myself, yet accept something created all. That, for me, is a ritual of spirituality, yet done religiously. The religion is the belief the all was created by a supernatural power I colloquially call the 'cosmos'.

      Tom, this is against the  Power of God & Scripture!  Phil 2:13 says "For it is GOD (aka Holy Spirit) who *worketh* in u both to will & to do of HIS good pleasure."
      Titus 2:12 says the Holy Spirit "..teaches us..."
      Your resp is "INHABICOMMUIN
