Molding Minds

28 May

Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete. Romans 12:2

Many years ago I read Brave New World by Huxley. He wrote that book in 1930. Even though I read it in 2002, the fictional ideas were still just fiction. In 2020 however, the odd ideas presented in Huxley’s book are no longer far fetched.

As we draw closer together, thanks to technology, I see people with different ideas. These ideas are safe to them but dangerous to us, just as they see our ideas as dangerous to them. What is the solution? How can the leaders of this world control this chaos? How can one control the thinking being? All would have to digest the ideas of one single entity either by force, deceit, or willingly. But as the saying goes, « You can’t teach an old dog tricks » I ask then, wouldn’t it be more profitable to focus on the pups?

Children’s minds can easily be moulded through programs that we allow them to watch. We ought to sit with them ready to discuss confusing content because there is indeed a war for their minds.

We cannot fight the enemy alone. As a Christian, I’ve witnessed that when a person gives their mind to Christ, there’s a transformation like no other. Yes, we struggle as we let go of hurtful ideas, but the result is heaven on earth.

Is your mind moulded by good or evil? Are you thinking of your Creator daily? Are you reading the Word of God, praying and searching for ways to share Him with your world? Because there’s  only one safe way to unity, and that’s through His Love.
