Romans 8:5-6 “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
Paul also says:
Romans 1:11 “For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established”.
Romans 7:14a “For we know that the law is spiritual”.
Paul says that the Law is spiritual and that being spiritual is life and peace. That is what the Law of God does. God’s Law, when followed, gives life and peace. This creates cognitive dissonance in the minds of those who reject God’s perfect and righteous Law.
