A 30-DAY GUIDE FOR NEW BELIEVERS

30天新教徒导航

DAY 10 THE RENEWED MIND

第10天 思想转变
What does it mean to renew my mind?

思想转变将意味着什么?

Our scripture on Day 1 described the extent of change in our new life in Christ:

我们第1天的经文是这样描写我们基督教新人生的变化:

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).

"All things" includes our minds. The Lord has plans to renew our minds, along with everything else!

任何人信仰基督教,他将获得新人生,摒弃旧生活,所拥有的将全变为新的。(《哥林多后书》章节 5:17

You may say, "I have a perfectly good mind. It has been well trained and highly educated. I can reason, and think clearly. I'm not in a fog. My mind serves me well in my work. I've even received awards for creative thinking ... "

你可能说,“我头脑灵活,我接受了良好的高等教育,我能推理,我思路清晰,我不处于迷雾中,我工作上有主见。我从我的创造性思维获益......

Here's the problem: Our minds were deeply impacted when mankind initially rebelled against God. This happened when Adam and Eve yielded to Satan's temptation to sin, resulting in the "Fall of Man" (see Genesis chapter 3). God's first children became thoroughly corrupted (including their minds) and we inherited their fallen condition.

问题是这样的:当人们最初抵触信仰上帝,我们的主观意识起支配作用。亚当和夏娃受撒旦的诱惑(偷食禁果)而获罪,下到凡间(见创世纪 第3章)。上帝的第一个孩子堕落了(包括他们的思想),我们继承了他们的凡间生活。

Since then, we've used our best efforts, humanly speaking, to function with that which was damaged -- to compensate for what the Apostle Paul calls "a debased mind" (Romans 1:28). For example, consider how the Greeks sought to elevate the mind, as did the great Oriental thinkers, or philosophers down through the ages. Yet with all the prominence given to "thought" and "reason," they totally missed it when it came to apprehending the greatest truth ever, that there is one true God and He can be known personally.

自那时起,从人的角度看,我们尽力让受损的正常工作---救赎被使徒保罗称之为“邪恶的心”(罗马书 章节 1:28)。例如,考虑希腊人如何寻找思想升华,如东方伟大的思想家或哲学家多年思考人生。然而,所有的卓越给予了“思想”和“推理”,当他们理解伟大真理------真的存在上帝,上帝可私交-----他们迷失了他们自己。
