    You are so right when you are right. Your mind is your biggest enemy....

    I used to think that your mind, not you specifically, was my biggest enemy, but I know better now.
    When I stop and listen to the mind of Christ, things go well for me.
    Otherwise, I just end up spinning my wheels.
    Humanism: any thought or idea that originates in the human mind.
    There is a way that seems right but in the end it leads to death. Proverbs 14:12

    God works with the mind. So I would think since God created the mind it is in fact not your enemy. It's a tool that God uses and we do.

    The battle always seems to start in the mind. Satan attacks us with lies all the time, and any "wrong" thinking is an opening for the evil one to slip in and play all kinds of havoc with your thoughts.. We must guard our hearts and our minds.

    An idle mind is the devil workshop, that's why it is called the bottomless pit, no foundations. hence the reason why we need the mind of Christ, because TRUTH have "FOUNDATIONS.", you can stand on the truth. but a lie, you'll fall everytime. so with that spine, get something for it to stand on.

    Amen bro!
    Christ is the one who never changes and never leaves us. We can count on Him BECAUSE He never changes or moves from us. He IS the foundation that never moves so, let's all hold on very tight to Him, He is our life raft. :)

    Amen Sister, and we don't even need any life jackets, for he is our "ARK" of safety, well built to take on any and every rouge wave in the ocean of sin. .

    One point, N

    It is my understanding that the soul is corrupt and includes mind, will, emotions.

    The term is carnally minded and what your saying doesn't fit with the bible teachings, please see Romans 8:6-8

    6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

    7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

    8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

    My point is that God makes the mind desirable. Follow

    Matthew 25:35-46


    and you're set, obeying the commandments too. Cheers :)

    When I first believed John 3:16, I was found not guilty because Jesus suffered for me.
    My spirit was also reborn.
    I was justified.
    When I started obeying Luke 9:23, I began to receive the goal of my faith, the sanctification of my soul.
    Capice?

    Not really. Satan is THE ENEMY, and he uses our minds. This is why we need the helmet of salvation and all of the other armor of God.

    Apparently mine is a watcher type protecting the other meerkats. At least that's what I was told.

    But yeah, we're all of different faiths here. Mine is a little more strict and I'm trying to live correctly, but it's a work in progress. I'm learning I think that my mind is more at peace and love when I serve others or try to be honest and good and serve. Then I have peace and love as stated in Galatians 5:22-25 and I think that helps the spiritual minded person. But peace and love come from God of course as a portion of the Holy Spirit.

    I'm finding I have to be picky with deeds or I end up paying for it. But yeah faith without works is dead.
