Where do you…

One of God's greatest gifts to mankind is the human mind – our capacity to think.

Thinking drives our lives; in other words, our beliefs shape our behavior.

Think about that for a moment.

Why do you do the things you do?

You believe that it will produce a desired outcome, right?

But what if your beliefs are misguided, false, or based on a lie?

Wouldn't you want to know?

Sure, you would, unless your stubborn or insane!

So, why is it we struggle with seeking truth together?

The apostle Paul realized that ideas/beliefs could revolutionize our lives:

Be transformed by the renewing of your mind
(Romans 12:2)

Here's my question: where do you go to get your mind renewed?

Let’s talk…

We've been teaching a lot about how discipline in one area of our life will spill over into others. So with a little bit of "prodding" by an unnamed friend (@Craigin) and the need to practice discipline…I'm back at it!

If you follow me on twitter (@brianb8) or Facebook you might have seen my recent postings on "individual rights".

  • When I say "individual rights" what do you think?
  • What would you give up your individual rights for?
  • Would you give up your "right" to a place in line?

In the book of Romans it says to "Be transformed by the renewing of your mind", basically to change the way we think about things. I'd like to start a conversation that may change the way we think about "individual rights"…you game?
