Education is intellectual. Spirituality is God given. No, formal religious training does NOT increase one's spirituality, it increases knowledge, but knowledge without wisdom is useless. I have debated with men with doctrinal degrees and the Holy Spirit taught me what to say and the HS blew their minds away, they left my house in awe of the Holy Spirit and later sought quote "what I had." Great story and testimony to the Holy Spirit for HIS way of teaching us. Amen?

School is fun. The school of the Holy Ghost is the only school for Spirituality. If you want fun, then ask God to send you to higher education. So many wicked people are attending higher education, and that is where alot of your false preachers and prophets are coming from. And they are getting rich.

No, it's really not true in every case. Sometimes years spent studying can make one lose track of a gift never used.
People should be gifted by the Spirit of God and trained in the church. That's was the New Testamnet way.

Only Jesus Christ can do anything about one's spirituality. It is probably better to not learn anything "spiritual" at school if it is the wrong doctrine.

Formal religious training makes one smarter, not more spiritual. Prayer and Bibile reading allow the Holy Spirit to work in a believer's life. One can have both, but education is not a prerequisite to being spiritual.

Studying helps us learn to be more pleasing to God:
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" 2 Timothy 3:16

Peter tells us that we should read all of Paul's epistles so we can grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and to do so with diligence that we may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
see: 2 Peter 3:13-18

We must study the Word:
"These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." Acts 17:11
Christ commands it:
"Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me." John 5:39

I know you know the word says in 1 John you have no need for a teacher, the Holy Spirit teaches you all things. Something funny to share is I heard a preacher, a popular one who has a world-wide ministry say alot of things I say. I said, "Hey, isn't it neat we say the same things?" Then I remembered, it's the same Holy Spirit teaching me that taught him. LOL
