Er, yes, and it's easily done (it's far simpler than much of what's been
offered):

"73.5 LOGIKOS,H,ON: pertaining to being genuine, in the sense of being true
to the real and essential nature of something - 'rational, genuine, true.'
THN LOGIKHN LATREIAN hUMWN 'this is your true worship' Ro 12:1; hWS
ARTIGENNHTA BREFH TO LOGIKON ADOLON GALA EPIPOQHSATE 'as newborn babes you
drank the true, unadulterated milk' 1Pe 2:2. Since in 1Pe 2:2 the context
is figurative, some translators have preferred to render LOGIKOS as
'spiritual,' so as to make the reference not literal but figurative."
