Is the Mind different from the Brain?
In Christendom many people believe that the renewing of the mind means a renewing of the brain. The brain can be renewed without the mind being renewed. This is demonstrated in secular circles as well as religious circles.
Your thinking ability is not your brain! Your brain is the avenue through which your thinking ability works in the physical realm. Your brain also funnels what the mind thinks, that is why we are admonished to “renew our mind” in order to conform to the image of Christ.
When we pass from this earth our brain remains with the body and decays with the body, yet out thinking ability, the mind is still intact and can remember, see Luke 16:25-28. God and His ways are beyond the understanding of man’s grey matter.
As long as religion is BRAIN controlled instead of MIND controlled it will remain OUT OF CONTROL because it is in MAN’'S CONTROL instead of GOD’S CONTROL!
