    Maybe there is not the reply number you expected because, and this my view, Kryptonite is a fiction suited for Superman comics.
    While manna from Heaven, my Fathers word, sustains always in this life. There is no Kryptonite metaphor for the Christian.
    Romans 6:1 - 4
    Dead to Sin, Alive to God
    1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? 2By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?

    i think...my big "spiritual kryptonite" is letting the lies of the world (not just about me, but about...life, morality, etc...everything...) get to me. I'm still very much undergoing "the renewal of my mind," so...yeah. prayer helps. reading The Bible helps. My close, Christian friend, Verna...absolute blessing. She sets me straight on things, real quick.

    I believe you misunderstand the scripture and the whole of the teaching itself in that chapter. You appear to be quite vexed and it was not my intention to bring that out of you. I hope you find peace.

    2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

    take 2 this Kryptonite is symbolic of sin troubles trials etc .just like super man his arch enemy knew if he could expose superman to Kryptonite. it would weaken him. today the devil our arch enemy has many devices . we are to be on guard proverbs says to keep guard our heart with all diligence for out of it is the issues of the heart.
    in combat they use landmine to prevent the enemy from coming in . one wrong step boom lose of limb or life.. satan has but one objective to kill steal destroy. there are spiritual land mines that the devil puts out .
    its not so much we willing step on them . but the devil knows what will attack our heart and he uses this to try to distract you in the heat of the battle.

    in closing the Church i am currently attending . the pastor son went and broke into cabins got caught with Drugs. it has tore him and his wife up. he is having to pray which is one of our weapons .in all these he is keeping his focus in the battle and the storm.

    before the religious golden cow committee forms a opinion and tries to go for the rebuke :eek2 there are storms that comes our way and if we are not in place to battle .the old devil will weaken us i heard a story of a father whose new born passed away. he now blames God.
    things happen .if memory serves right the one thing that kept this Kryptonite from weakening super man. was a lead shield . our shield is the whole armor of GOD. IF YOU LIKE THIS ITS OK TO SAY AMEN .. if you dont like it or its not your taste . so be it . i am not people pleaser .but a servant to help. just like the General in war he does not ask he commands. we been commanded to be alert for attack at any given moment :readbible

    I've too many weakness to count. Failure in all of them stay on me. Wish I had the faith to be a better man. Or the strength to stand against my sins.

    It is pointless and counter productive to get tense and stressed about it.
    Best to remain calm, soft and gentle in all things. One can remain truthful, righteous, and faithful while in peace.
