Being spiritually dead actually means being alienated from God. Man was created as a spiritual being, after God formed man out of dust in His own image, He breathed His spirit in the man that means the man who lived in him was of the spirit of God. Which identifies him with God. Our spiritual man is the you in you. When this dies then you are living in carnality. How do we die spiritually? We have two beings the inner man and the outer man. The one we feed most lives and grows the one we feed less starves and dies. In Romans 8:5 it says those who live according to the carnal nature have their minds set on what their flesh desires and those living according to the spirit have their mind set on what the spirit desires. Verse ten of the same chapter says when you have the spirit of God in you, then what dies is the flesh and the spirit lives because of righteousness in Christ. When we focus much on the flesh and forget about the spiritual man in us we kill him and make the other live. At this point you are dead spiritually. So spiritual death basically means alive in flesh and sin but without God in you. God spirit, Gods presence, Gods nature has no place In Your life. You are are completely cut off from God and you are dead. A spiritual dead person can be seen from the way they live and how they conduct themselves. Their life is characterized by the desires of the flesh and satisfying them. Let's feed the spiritual man in us so that we can't be walking dead spiritually. Blessings good people.
