The life of the Spirit is life and peace. The difference is whether you believe.
Living as the world lives, or as any false cult or religion, is always death. It can only rely upon the basic principles and elementary principles of this world. But the life of the Spirit of Christ transcends all the natural.
There is no natural law, no elementary principle, nor anything else of the created order to which a believer, ultimately, is subjected to. Not even death.
