It has become common knowledge that Christianity in America is in a crisis. Our answers to our problems are continuously external: another program, self-help teaching, ministry, mission project, 100 ways to…, etc., while the inner man (I Tim. 4:8) continues to starve. Although Biblical Psychology has been nothing short of abandoned within the Christian Church, I was surprised to discover that 1/4 of the New Testament directly or indirectly refers to the mind, making its subject more than relevant. Since Psychology remains in the shadows of contextual and hermeneutical criticism within the sacred Text, I felt obligated to place effort in reviving this sacred course. Biblical Psychology is just as powerful today as ever, but since it usually goes unscathed, Christianity is often chomping at the bit to fix the peripheral, leaving the focal to remain in chaos. In this book, we will solve this problem by studying the mind from a biblical perspective and breaking down each of its intellectual properties, namely: attention, conscience, emotion, heart, imagination, knowledge, memory, opinions, perception, reason, understanding, and thought. Furthermore, we will re-ask some questions concerning the most powerful machine in the world—the human mind!
• What is Logic? How Do I use My Logic and Reasoning for Good?
• What is My Conscience? How Do I Keep a Good Conscience?
• What is the Purpose of My Memory? How Do I Delete Bad Files from My Mind’s Memory, and Upload the Right Files?
• How Can I Get Control of My Out of Control Mind?
• Do My Feelings Ever Lie? Can I Trust My Feelings?
• In What Part of the Mind does Depression Exist and Can I Beat it without Medication?
• What is the Purpose of Knowledge?
• How Do I Know if My Perception is Right or Wrong?
• What is the Purpose of My Imagination?
• What is the Most Practical Way to Have a Positive Attitude?
• How Do I Overcome My Addictive Behavior, Fear, Inferiority Complex, Negativity, etc.?
In light of the questions, we will bring to the table the mind’s great riddles: what it is, how it works, what its safe guards are, and how to use it rightly. Finally, we will discover that the mental logistics found within the Bible are the very answer to the Christian’s reformation (Rom. 12:1-2) and obtaining the power of God (II Tim. 1:7) in his life!
