It Matters How We Think

Take a look at Romans 12:1 – 2.  Notice that Paul does not exhort us to be transformed by the renewing of our spirit, or our emotions, or our behavior.  It is the renewing of our minds, the way we think.  Take a look at all the references to the mind in the New Testament (click here).  That is not even all of the references to how we think.
How I process life, how I think about it, matters.  Thoughts at DTTB.
Paul’s letters are full of references to our mindset, Philippians 2:1 – 8 is a good example of that.  We are to have the same mind and attitude as Christ.  The one way I know how to do that, is to spend time, a great deal of it, in His Word.  There may be other ways, but I am not aware of what they might be.

There are many opinions about issues.  Only one opinion counts.  The Creator’s.  There are many who work very hard at making the Bible say exactly opposite of what it does say.  Frankly that is baffling to me.  If we have the Word of God, why do we not just accept it as it is?  But that answer is clear.  We saw it yesterday in Jeremiah 13:15 – 17.  In our arrogance, we think we know better than the One who created us and all we can see.

Lunacy.
