  • “So Brethren you must be grinding, or you will not have the flour. You will not be able to extemporize good thinking unless you have been in the habit of thinking and feeding your mind with abundant and nourishing food. Work hard at every available moment. Store your minds very richly, and then, like merchants with crowded warehouses, you will have goods ready fro your customers, and having arranged your good things upon the shelves of your mind, you will be able to hand them down at any time without the laborious process of going to market, sorting folding and preparing. I do not believe that any man can be successful in continuously maintaining the gift of extemporaneous speech, except by ordinarily using far more labour than is usual with those who write and commit their discourses to memory. Take it as a rule without exception, that to be able to overflow spontaneously you must be full” [Spurgeon, Lectures to my Students, Zondervan Publishing House, 1954, p. 145] <br /> - You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3 <br /> - You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.” Matthew 16:23 <br /> - Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. Romans 1:28 <br /> - I see another law at work members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. Romans 7:23 <br /> - When I applied my mind to know wisdom and to observe man’s labor on earth — his eyes not seeing sleep day or night — Ecclesiastes 8:16 <br /> - The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; Romans 8:6 <br /> - Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 <br /> - I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought. 1 Corinthians 1:10 <br /> - The man who has settled the matter in his own mind, who is under no compulsion but has control over his own will, and who has made up his mind not to marry the virgin — this man also does the right thing. 1 Corinthians 7:37 <br /> - So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my mind; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my mind. 1 Corinthians 14:15 <br /> - Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. Philippians 3:19 <br />

  • The Engine [The heart] - Has it’s own brain (a kind of checking station - 40,000 neurons). communicates with the brain using ANF peptides (regulates many of the brain functions and motivates behavior). 4 ways of communication: 1. neurologically (nerve impulse), 2. Biochemically (hormones and neurotransmitters), 3. Biophysically (pressure waves), 4. Energetically (Electromagnetic field interraction) <br /> <br />

  • Scripture: Luke 8:11-15 [Read after: Hebrews 10 - The Gear Shift] <br /> <br /> If thinking and emotions are inseparable - then how we process information depends on attitude [the word of god gives us a proper attitude, and the discernemnt to build the right attitude] <br /> <br /> “This is the meaning of the parable: The seed [Sporos] is the word of God. Those along the path [Hodos - way, manner of life] are the ones who hear [Akouo - pay attention, obey], and then the devil comes and takes away the word [Logos] from their hearts [Kardia - heart, mind, seat of thought and emotion, “heart” as focus on thinking and understanding], so that they may not believe and be saved. Those on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away. The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble [Kalos - good, right, beautiful, excellent] and good heart, who hear the word, retain [Katecho - hold fast, to be bound, possess] it, and by persevering [Hypomone - perseverance, patience (Hypo - under, Meno - retain] produce a crop. [KEYS: THE WORD WAS PREACHED TO EACH SOIL - 4 RESULTS ALL DEPENDING ON HOW THE SOIL RECEIVED THE SEED!] <br /> <br /> 1 Timothy 6:5-6 “... constant friction [toxicity] between men of corrupt minds [Nous - thinking, understanding, insight]... but Godliness [Eusebeia - eu - well, well done (do you hear it today???)(Those who habitually look at God have eyes that are translucent, and hearts that are full of joy), Sebo - to worship (be devout)(affirmation, validation (kirk... and then Abby dropping my Mac), teach them to love the word, not listen to the word, but love the word, then they will listen...)] with contentment [Autarkeia - sufficiency, auto - himself herself, itself, Arkios - enough, satisfied] is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that [i.e. even if it were to be so...]] <br /> 2 Peter 3:18 “... grow in grace [Charis - the state of kindness toward another, words of kindness and benefit, such as “thanks”, or “blessing”] and knowledge [Gnosis - understanding]” <br /> 1 John 2:16 “For everything in the world — the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does — comes not from the Father but from the world” <br /> 1 John 4:1 “Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits [Pneuma - spirit, heart, mind, and things with no material substance] to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world [kosmos - “where people live”, in John “the world” is a system opposed to God]”... verse 4-6 also <br /> 1 John 4:7 “let us love one another, for loves comes from God. Everyone who loves has ben born of God and knows God” <br /> <br /> Philippians 2 - 5-13 - Your attitude [Phroneo - To think, hold an opinion, to set one’s mind on] should be the same as that of Christ Jesus... <br /> <br />

  • Co-laboring of Heart and Brain in sociology: <br /> 1. A hardened heart comes from the way the brain has administered incoming information, “The magicians said to pharaoh, “This is the Finger of God”, but Pharaoh's heart was hard, and he would not listen just as the Lord had said” [Exodus 8:15] [JOKE: the indian salesman who ended his call with “ok then, fyou” <br /> 2. A soft heart generates the right action [proper mobility] to share, or to give, or act beyond themselves “and everyone who was willing and whose heart moved him came...” [Exodus 35:21][Chesterton: the swiftest things are the softest things” Orthodoxy] <br /> 3. The heart SPEAKS. “you are to receive the offering from each man whose heart prompts him to give” [EXODUS 25:2] <br /> 4. A heart that is proud ‘forgets’ others “forget the Lord” [Deuteronomy 8:14][someone who does not ask questions, and has abundant opinions] <br /> 5. A wise and discerning heart is highly sought after and only God gives it “I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there never will have been someone like you” [1 Kings 3:12], “the man without the spirit does not accept the things that come from the spirit of God, for the are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them because they are spiritually discerned” [1 Corinthians 2:13], the whole world sought out Solomon’s wisdom [1 Kings 10:24] <br /> 6. We choose what to have on our hearts. If we choose well God approves it “you did well to have this on your heart” [1 Kings 8:8] <br /> 7. A change of heart is needed to break the yoke of captivity “If they have a change of heart in the land that they are held captive, and repent...” <br /> 8. Proud hearts do not respond to kindness properly “But Hezekiah’s heart was proud, and he did not respond to the kindness shown him” [2 Chronicles 32:25] <br /> 9. God hears humble hearts “Because our heart was responsive and you humbled yourself before God... I heard you” [2 Chronicles 34:27] <br /> 10. The heart that sings is a heart that is thankful “that my heart may sing to you and not be silent” [Psalm 30:12] [THE MUSIC OF THE BODY: PEPTIDES WILL EITHER YODLE, OR YELL!][DR. DANIEL AMEN'S DAUGHTER DID A PSYCHOLOGY STUDY AS A 12 YEAR OLD USING HE GAME \"MEMORY\" WHILE LISTENING TO: NOTHING (MID), MOZART (BEST), ROCK (SEMI-LOW), HEAVY METAL (WORST), AND RAP (WORST) MUSIC][Daniel G. Amen, M.D., Making a Good Brain Great, Three Rivers Pres, 2005. p. 165] <br /> <br />

  • [Co-laboring of heart and brain in sociology Continued:] <br /> 10. A pounding heart is failing heart “my heart pounds, my strength fails me, even the light has gone from my eyes” [psalm 38:10] [A POUNDING HEART IS FULL OF NEGATIVE HORMONES SUCHAS CORTISOL AND ADRENALINE WHICH CONSTRICT THE ARTERIES, AND THE FLOW OF BLOW - USUALLY A FEAR DRIVEN THOUGHT-EMOTION PATTERN [OR CODE], RESTRICTS THINKING, AND CURTAILS THE BRAIN’S GROWTH IF SUSTAINED <br /> 11. Noble themes stir the heart to creativity “My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer” [Psalms 45:1] <br /> 12. A pure heart, renews the Spirit of a man “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me [Psalms 51:10] <br /> 13. An anguished heart eventually kills “My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death assail me” [Psalms 55:4] <br /> 14. The heart and brain can both be deceived at the same time depending on what we have constantly accepted [faith or fear - it is our choice] “They plot injustice and say, “We have devised a perfect plan!” Surely the mind and heart of man are cunning” [Psalms 66:18] [Mind: Qereb - “seat of thought and emotion, interior, in the midst of” [see the previous diagram for the position of the Hypothalamus, and Thalamus] [Heart: Leb - the inner person, the self] <br /> 15. The acceptance of good/God thoughts releases positive hormones such as endorphins, and of negative thoughts releases negative hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. emotion charged hormones are described as “passionate” or “intense”. their true character is not always easy to discern. a way that they can be differentiated is in the aftermath. negative passion release usually leaves a person feeling “down”, which is accompanied by guilt, shame, feeling less-loved, and discouraged. Positive passion releases, on the other hand, usually leave a person with a ‘glow’, a “warmth’, a fuzzy feeling of well-being that lingers as a kind of ‘fragrance’ that persists sometimes for a long time. persons high on EQ and MQ learn to preserve that glow. they learn to marshall their thoughts to that end by “taking them captive to their obedience of God”. the eyes of a person are usually an indication of what has gone on inside, they can be flat and dull, or shining and bright - they literally reflect the state of the soul! <br /> 15. A happy heart, releases the subconscious to dream, to think, to process, to inquire... “I remembered my songs in the night, my heart mused and my spirit inquired” Psalms 77:6, “A <br /> 16. A heart without the Truth is divided “Teach me your way, and I will walk in your Truth. give me an undivided heart [Psalms 86:11] [WHAT IS DIVIDED? 1. Brain and heart are not in sync. 2. Brain and Heart not in sync with God] [SERIES TO FOLLOW ON “THE DIVIDED MIND”] <br /> 17. The face which reflects the mind, affects the heart, and alters the physical condition of the body “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones” [Proverbs 15:30], “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones” [Proverbs 17:22] [MEDICAL FACT: the life is in the blood, negative hormones constrict the arteries and lessens blood flow] <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
  • 7 Spiritual Formations [David KInnaman and Gabe Lyons, Unchristian, Baker Books, 2007, p. 80] <br /> [the passions that should describe a Christ follower - we examine these 7 passions at Barna] <br /> 1. Worshipping God intimately and passionately <br /> 2. Engaging in spiritual friendships with other believers <br /> 3. Pursuing faith in the context of family <br /> 4. Embracing intentional forms of spiritual growth <br /> 5. Serving others <br /> 6. Investing time and resources in spiritual pursuits <br /> 7.
