Can you call a person as spiritual-minded person, if he doesn't have faith in what claims he believe?
Bible very well explains the connection between faith and spirituality with the examples of spritual-minded persons of past time.

Hebrews 11:1-40 are as follows:

Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld.

Faith is blind and it makes us difficult to see the narrow path of spirituality.

If any one has to excel in spirituality he should break the clutches of religion, i.e. BANISH RELIGION

Faith is blind. It starts where logic ends.
Spirituality and faith are not realated in ANYWAY.
