But How to Judge?

We can't judge Christianly without a Christian mind.

The Christian Mind

But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 1 Corinthians 2.15

The Christian Mind
Harry Blamires (1916-)
“It is not part of our case to pretend that all secular thinking is bad and all Christian thinking is good. We are not even saying that secular thinking about Christian matters is bad – or even inappropriate. It is not. It is necessary. To think secularly may be to think well or ill, logically or illogically, illuminatingly or platitudinously, fruitfully or to no purpose. Likewise to think christianly may be to think well or ill, rationally or irrationally, knowledgeably or ignorantly, penetratingly or shallowly, lucidly or confusingly. We are not wiping out any of the established categories and values pertinent to thought and to scholarship when we make this crucial distinction between thinking secularly and thinking christianly.”

Yes, but how can we tell the difference? How can we know when we’re thinking like the world thinks, or like God thinks? How can we judge the reliability of anything we might think or say, if we do not know where the boundaries exist between thinking secularly and thinking Christianly? The simple answer is, we cannot. We have no basis on which to judge our thoughts, plans, courses of action, or conduct from the perspective of Christ and His glory, unless we grow into the mind of Christ which we possess, and think all our thoughts with His intellectual resources, and not merely our own.

As you see it, what’s the starting-point, and what might be the next steps, to begin thinking more consistently with the mind of Christ?

Your Life as Christ Sees It

“As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you” (Jn. 20.21). That’s how Jesus thinks about our lives. Our Missions Partner Outreach program is designed as a life-based training curriculum, to help church members identify and begin thinking about and working their Personal Mission Fields for the purpose of making disciples and advancing Christ’s Kingdom. I’m looking for some men to lead through this training program, and to help you see how our Missions Outreach Partners programcan help your church overcome its failure to communicate.
