Learning to think differently

Insight in the world's eyes offers wisdom, but the world's ownership of insight is fool's gold. The world says insight breaks generational curses and heals old wounds. This understanding is how Christians can come to accept unBiblical advice, because it chases after the world's view of insight. It allows psychologists to create New Testament-sounding language about the healing impact of forgiveness. It allows scientists to create Old Testament-sounding language about the positive impact of prayer or spiritual contemplation. In the end, what they are offering is not the true spiritual healing or impact of the advance of God's Kingdom in our lives, which is a fundamental message of the Bible. Forgiveness is good, yes. Prayer is calming, yes. But the power is not in forgiveness and prayer; the power is God's will being done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
