in an earlier post, but it bears repeating. Peter is committed to stirring up the minds of his readers (2 Peter 1:12 -15; 3:1 -2).
The Holy Spirit inspired these words. We ignore them to our peril. The clear message of the Holy Spirit is that as believers we are to engage our minds in the pursuit of Christ. We cannot do that without the ministry of the Holy Spirit, John 16:13, but it is imperative that we think well and train our kids to do the same.
