Many of us tend to try to compartmentalize our spiritual selves, to attempt to separate them from the rest of our life and experience so that we can do the things we know contradict our spirituality during our day-to-day life. In truth, such practices are the death of our spiritual selves. From a Christian perspective, if something is wrong on Sunday morning then it is wrong the rest of the week as well. We can’t claim to follow the prince of peace and then work in a munitions factory during the week. We can’t claim to believe that the greatest commandment is to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves and then advocate for the torture of captured enemies. If we try, we destroy our spiritual selves and our spiritual practice becomes nothing more than a facade that will not transform our lives. Spirituality comes with a heavy price tag.
