God wants spiritual FRUITS, not religious NUTS

Now the doings (practices) of the flesh are clear (obvious): they are immorality, impurity, indecency, Idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions (dissensions) , party spirit (factions, sects with peculiar opinions, heresies), Envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
(Gal 5:19-21)

But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance) , kindness, goodness (benevolence) , faithfulness, Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint,
continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].
(Gal 5:22-23)
