EXERCISE:
Give your life to Jesus Christ and commit to become a Christian. Read and repeat the
sinner's prayer at the bottom of page 60. If you already profess to be a Christian and
have backslidden, or have not really been converted, ask our heavenly Father to
forgive you and then rededicate your life to Christ. Commit to being a real Christian
and ask God to bless you with a genuine conversion experience.

THEMENTALEXPERIENCE

THE MENTAL EXPERIENCE


MIND IS CENTRAL TO CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

Jesus did more healing of the mind than most people realize. By forgiving sins and relieving
the burden of guilt, by speaking words of encouragement, he relieved the sufferings of many minds
and allowed for the restoration of mental capacity to know and love God. He worked very carefully
with the human mind. Every organ of the body was made to be servant to the mind. The mind is the
capital of the body the seat of all the nervous forces and of mental action. All our actions, good or
bad, have their source in the mind. The moral and vigorous action of the higher powers of the mind is
essential to the perfection of Christian character. Perfection of character is attained through
exercise of the faculties of the mind, in times of supreme test, by obedience to every
requirement of God's law.
The mental and moral powers which God has given us
do not constitute character. They are talents which we are to
improve and which, if properly improved, will form a right
character.
All who are fitted for usefulness must be trained by the
severest mental and moral discipline, and God will assist them
by uniting divine power with human effort. The warfare in which
we are engaged is largely mental, and the mind that is the most
thoroughly trained will do the most acceptable work.
Natural and mental resources come alone from a knowledge of the laws which God has
established in nature and in our own human structure, and obedience to these laws must be
observed, or our lives will prove a failure.
He who created the mind and ordained its laws, provided for its development in accordance
with them. Through the mental bias, habits are formed, and customs, feelings, and wishes have a
greater or less influence.
Every sinful gratification tends to benumb the faculties and deaden the mental and spiritual
perceptions, and the Word or the Spirit of God can make but a feeble impression upon the heart.
True religion unfolds and calls out the mental energies. Conviction and repentance of sin,
renunciation of self, and trust in the merits of the blood of Christ cannot be experienced without the
individual being made more thoughtful, more intellectual, than he was before.
A sanctified heart quickens and intensifies the mental powers.
The proper cultivation of the mental powers makes man all that he is. These ennobling
faculties are given to aid in forming character for the future, immortal life. Man was created for a
higher, holier state of enjoyment than this world can afford. He was made in the image of God for high
and noble purposes, such as engage the attention of angels.

Jesus taught that the word of God was of vital importance to the spiritual life of every human being
who desires to be saved and He encouraged the study of the Scriptures. He affirmed that the law of
God would never be done away with and he lived in harmony with all Gods commandments. He also
taught others to live in harmony with the principles of righteousness. ,WLVWKURXJKVWXG\DQGEHOLHIRI

Educational Reform:
Laws of the Mind



EDUCATIONALREFORM

EDUCATIONAL REFORM
Laws of the Mind
True education reform begins with accepting the invitation of Christ, Learn of me..., (Matthew 11:29)
Accepting the invitation means we also hear and obey the Holy Spirit saying, Let this mind be in you
which was also in Christ Jesus.(Philippians 2:5) This will require a reformation of our thought life.
The first work of those who would reform is to purify the imagination. Our meditations should be such
as will elevate the mind. Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever
things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of
good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8)
ADAPTATION
The mind gradually adapts itself to the subjects upon which it is allowed to dwell.
BEHOLDING
It is a law of the human mind that by beholding we become changed.
CONVICTION
It is a law of God that whoever believes the truth as it is in Jesus will make it known. The ideas
and convictions of the individual mind will seek for expression.
DIMENSION
It is a law of the mind that it will narrow or expand to the dimensions of the things with which it
becomes familiar.
ENLIGHTENMENT
The mind enlightened by the truth, sees truth in distinction from error.
MENTAL ACTIVITY
The mind will never cease to be active. It is open to influences, good or bad.
SUBSTITUTE DESIRE
It is an important law of the mind...that when a desired object is so firmly denied as to remove
all hope, the mind will soon cease to long for it and will be occupied in other pursuits. But as long as
there is any hope of gaining the desired object, an effort will be made to obtain it.
THOUGHTS
The thoughts will be of the same character as the food provided for the mind.
If the thoughts are wrong, the feelings will be wrong; and the thoughts and feelings combined
make up the moral character.
If the thoughts, the dreamings of the mind, are of great purposes in which self figures, there
will be revealed in words and actions self-exaltation, a lifting up of self.
Our thoughts produce our words, and our words react upon our thoughts.
True education is for the purpose of developing a Christ-like character. It presents one of the primary
personal growth objectives for Christians and a mission statement which is found in 2 Corinthians 10:5

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God,
and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ
