Just Because it’s Spiritual Doesn’t Mean it’s Good
I think that all things are spiritual, but I am quick to assert that not everything that is spiritual is good.
Sometimes it is abundantly clear when something is spiritual but bad; other times it is not so obvious, while occasionally it can be quite confusing.
As a foundation of understanding, I use the Bible as a reference point in discerning good spirituality from bad spirituality. In doing so, I endeavor to comprehend the Bible as narrative, not as rulebook or legal document, but as story about God and the people he created—all people.
That is why this blog is about biblical spirituality, distinguishing it from an anything spirituality.

Peter DeHaan writes about biblical spirituality, often with a postmodern slant. He seeks a fresh approach to faith and following God through the lens of scripture, without the baggage of made-up traditions and meaningless practices. Read more in his books, blog, and weekly email updates.
