i think that the modern church in the west has lost the practice of the spiritual disciplines. To many people wanting a feel good gospel. An ooey gooey faith. I’m not talking about something legalistic either. That’s the other abyss. I’m talking about the narrow path between the two.
There are three areas of spiritual disciplines
Some of the specific disciplines within the three are: fasting, silent prayer, scripture memorization, solitude, attending an assembly to name a few.
