The Church needs a renewal of minds - @jaysmokeBlog
Mind Games! We see it everywhere. From entertainment to social media, to politics and even religion. That's what it's all about! But when you renew your mind, you will be free. The Bible says the truth shall set you free.
As a Christian, you are taught so many things growing up. Stuff that don't even make sense. You see things in a certain perspective and anything you don't understand, you quickly add to the 'only God knows' list. We've created this imaginary world, that's not Christian but years of wrong teachings and anything that is contrary to it, EVEN IF IT'S IN THE WORD OF GOD, is not accepted. We are so comfortable with our version of Christianity that we don't want to hear any new doctrine that contrary to our comfort zone. No wonder on judgement day many will cry Lord Lord and He will say to them, depart from me, I never knew you.
When we study the word, we'll understand that some things are just man's word and not God's word. Some things are religious not spiritual. Some things are an abomination to man not to God. We'll see things from God's perspective not man's. We'll become like God. We'll become an embodiment of love because God is love.
The mind games have gone on for far too long, it's handicapped a whole continent. The church needs a renewal of minds and it starts with you and I studying the word for ourselves and not being afraid to ask questions.
