// #EXPLAIN & FIX: Christian With EVIL THOUGHTS In Their Head: 2 Corinthians 10:5 #thoughts #evil #christian #thinking* 17K+ ↓↓   ↓

The Bible tells us to be "bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" (2 Corinthians 10:5). What does this mean? The fact is, our own brains have their "fallen nature", and the false training they had received prior to becoming saved Christians. There are also the effects of the media, news, propaganda (movies, tv, radio, music, etc) and constant seeds being spit at Christians to attack their faith. This is a real form of brainwashing and it creates something called PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder - in which someone keeps recalling something bad in thought).

What we are exposed to can create "pathways" in the brain, that can light up suddenly when a nerve signal fires through it. This can bring up evil we have been exposed to, in a sort of thought form. These thoughts can even mix with our daily life: seeming as if new thoughts, rather than what they actually are: traumatized memories.

There are countless chemicals in our environment (such as perfume, fragranced laundry products, etc) that are messing with peoples ability to process thoughts properly. This is a scientific fact!

There are also evil spirits, enemies, and what the Bible calls "seducing spirits", trying to seduce people into sin and lies. Regardless of which is trying to cause influence, the fact is that no matter how strong and good of a Christian someone becomes, thoughts will come into their mind. These thoughts need to be kept in check. The brain is a wonderful tool for processing information, but it needs to be monitored and kept under control. Keeping our thoughts in check is one of the many differences between saved Christians and the rest of the world.

Parables (examples) for understanding 2 Corinthians 10:5...
1. Two people suddenly have blasphemous thoughts come into their head against Jesus Christ.
The saved Christian renounces the thought (rejects it), recognizing that it is not the truth, and not part of who they are as a Christian, and reassures (perhaps even proclaims outloud) the truth instead, that Jesus Christ is God and their Lord and Savior. They have taken their thought in obedience to Christ.
The other person however, is deceived by the enemy into thinking that this blasphemous thought is what they must truly think about Jesus Christ (thinking: after all it's in their head), thus they have accepted it and it will work to destroy them.

2. Two people suddenly have sexual lust thoughts in their head that is clearly proclaimed as damnable sin in the Bible.
The saved Christian renounces the thought (rejects it), recognizing that it is not acceptable, and not part of who they are as a Christian, and reassures (perhaps even proclaims outloud) the truth instead, that Jesus Christ / God has designed them in truth, and given them the truth about what is and isn't acceptable in his eyes sexually.
The other person however, is deceived by the enemy into thinking that this sexual lust thought in their head must be who they are as a person sexually (thinking: after all it's in their head), thus they have accepted it and it will work to destroy them.

3. Two people are tempted to steal.
The saved Christian renounces the temptation / thought (rejects it), recognizing that it is not the truth, and not part of who they are as a Christian, and reassures (perhaps even proclaims outloud) the truth instead, that they are NOT a thief, and God has condemned theft.
The other person gives in to the temptation, steals, and becomes a thief.

It is not the brain, but the heart and soul that is who someone really is. Dont believe or act on every thought. The brain is only a processing tool.

God Almighty knows your very thoughts. It's not simply your actions that he will take into account. He needs to know that you reject evil thinking, and do not accept nor act upon it!

"And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?" (Matthew 9:4).
" For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory." (Isaiah 66:18).
"Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established." (Proverbs 16:3).
"Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts"(Psalm 139:23).
