Blinded Minds

August 4, 2009
What do you bow to?  What do you worship?

What do you bow to? What do you worship?

But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. – Phillipans 3:7

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. – Matthew 6:21

In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of  the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. – 2 Corinthians 4:4

Check out the following thoughts from Pastor Mark Driscoll from the Advance ’09 conference.

What is it that you value above Jesus?  Is it sex?  alcohol? comfort? money?

What do you count as gain?

Is your mind blind?

Where does your treasure lie?

    Consider seven signs of genuine confession and repentance: (Essential information for co-dependents or enablers)
    The offender:

    1. Accepts full responsibility for his or her actions. (Instead of saying, ”Since you think I’ve done something wrong…” or “If have done anything to offend you…”).

    2. Accepts accountability from others.
