Another example: Think about brilliant people you know -- "the smartest person in the world" -- and observe the large gaps, say in their ability to be good parents, or manage their finances, or maintain lasting friendships or use their time wisely. In spite of their great intelligence, vital aspects of an integrated life are missing. Before I became a Christian, I had concluded I wouldn't believe anything that wasn't reasonable or logical. Eventually, however, I realized that line of thinking was a barrier, not a doorway to receiving Christ. In reality, I needed a different way of thinking.

再举一个例子:想想你人生的聪明人----世界上最聪明的人---遵守大家族的要求,说他能孝敬父母,或能理财或维持长久的友谊或深谋远虑的过日子。尽管他们才智超群,却错过家族生活至关重要的方面。在我成为基督教前,我曾作出结论,我不会相信任何无理的或不符合逻辑的东西。然而,最终我意识到思想是障碍,不是接受基督的门槛。在现实中,我需要不同的思考方法。


The Apostle Paul, who had a brilliant mind and was highly educated, challenged early followers of Christ (and us!) toward having "renewed minds."

使徒保罗,是个头脑聪明的人,接受过高等教育,挑战已经转变思想的耶稣早期追随者(和我们

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2).

不要墨守成规,而要转换思想。你可证实何为神的善良的,可接受的,完美的旨意。(罗马书 章节 12:2

The Lord doesn't want you to set your mind aside when you come to Him. Just the opposite. He created your mind, and wants it fully employed, but in the right kind of way. The process by which this occurs is "renewal." It is not to stop thinking, but to think biblically. It is to view things from His perspective. It is to have "the mind of Christ," and not allow your thinking to be conformed to the world. "Let this mind be in you ... " was Paul's advice to the Philippian believers (Philippians 2:5). The results are dramatically different: "To be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace" (Romans 8:16).

上帝不想你在信仰他而放弃你的主见。恰恰相反,他促使你思考,让你以正确的方法思考,并付之应用。这样一个过程就是思想转变。它不是停止思考,而是按圣经去思考。以他的洞察力去观察事物。他即为上帝的想法,不允许你墨守成规。“让这样的想法与你同在...”保罗给腓立比信众提出这样的建议(腓立比书 章节 2:5)

A great way to begin the transformation toward a renewed mind is to meditate on the scriptures. You might take the ones mentioned so far in these studies, reflect on them, even memorize them. Renewing the mind is a process, but one with great reward.

开始思想转变的最好方法是默想经文。你可以默想迄今为止学习到的经文,回想他们,甚至记住他们。思想转变是一个过程,也是一个回报。
