Have you seen when a dog lies down on his back and pretends to be submissive but so soon as he gets up he's the same again. I don´t know why I get this feeling when I see those people. But God will make them lie down until they become TRULY submissive.

===> FLESH

1 Corinthians 3:3
.. for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?

Colossians 2:21-23
“Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,” which all concern things which perish with the using according to the commandments and doctrines of men? These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh.

Romans 8:5
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.


1 Corinthians 2:10-15
But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 1But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.

1 Corinthians 15:43-48
It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly.

In quote above: "For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him?" This means that we can never know what is in someone else. For example a murderer can have true desire to be clean and he have internal struggle, and a priest who looks like righteous man but he is full of dirty desires inside. That is why we can not send to hell or condemn others because we don´t know what is inside of them, it is only man himself and God who knows, but that does NOT mean that we can not judge others deeds. This is usually misused by religious demons to make Christians to mix this up and in that way make free space for religious demons to act.
There are two ditches when it comes to mixing up spiritual with natural. If someone use spiritual things to explain and apply on natural, that person is religious. But if someone use natural thing to explain spiritual that is OK that is what Bible do. the other ditch is when people live spiritually in the natural, they are usually lost in their imaginations and some even spiritually mad. 
I believe this is a reason why most groups ends up as CULTS. 
So we are to compare spiritual things with spiritual but natural comes first and spiritual after.
