Lest this turn into a never ending debate over things that most people do not understand nor want to understand, since I am the author of this blog let me have the final word on this subject.
Romans, Ephesians, Colossians and other places in the New Testament speak of the metamorphosis that takes place as we renew our minds to the truth of God's Word. The simple truth is that when we get born again, the new birth does NOT change the mind but rather implants the spirit of Christ within us. It is our job the rest of our lives to put on the new man and put off the old. This is not me talking but rather the exact words found in Ephesians and Colossians.
As we change our thinking to line up with the Word of God, we are transformed into the image of the Christ within. This is a process that takes time and hard work. It has nothing to do with our salvation but rather our WALK. The "renewed mind" is the process by which we replace worldly and old nature thoughts and habits with the new ones God lays out in His Word. "Let him that steal, steal no more, but rather let him labor working with his hands..." is a prime example out of Ephesians 4.
The promise of God's Word is that if we faithfully work to renew our minds and put on the mind of Christ, we will be transfigured so that as 2 Corinthians states, we when we look in the mirror we see the glory of the Lord. This takes time to reach this level and in the process there are going to be bad days and set backs.
Rather than continue debating this subject, I would prefer that we leave it with the simple truth that once we get saved and receive the Holy Spirit, we must not stop there but rather work to change our thinking so we think as Christ does and therefore do as He does. Receiving with meekness the engrafted Word of God is the key to changing our thoughts and replacing the corrupt and evil way we thought and did things when we were not born again with the way God wants us to think and act once we are born again.
