Greetings in the Name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST!

James 1 verse 21 (amplified) “So get rid of all uncleanness and the rampant outgrowth of wickedness, and in a humble (gentle, modest) spirit receive and welcome the Word which implanted and rooted [in your hearts] contains the power to save your souls.”

Everyone in the world at birth is assigned to an invisible teacher (an evil spirit) by default and virtue of Adam’s fall.
It is from that time (birth) until at the point of being born again that this process (evil teachings) is reversed by the renewing of the mind to the Word of God  [(Romans 12 verse 1-2 (amplified)].

In the Epistles Paul’s writings show that when it comes to maintaining this process of renewing the mind the born again child of God bears the responsibility. The subject being addressed in this matter is the believer not God which indicates that the Word when it comes to the renewing of the mind waits for the believer to facilitate (progressively initiate) that process.

The warning is that unless we carry out the renewing of the mind we will not differ from the world in what we do and/or say because ONLY the Word of God is able to save (deliver/set free) our souls (mind,will and emotions) apart from that no one can deliver him/herself (deception). i.e. thinking that what you do or always did was right because you knew no better or otherwise until the light from the word illuminates your thinking thus aligning your actions to God’s will.

So never halt this critical process in staying free from deception – renew your mind with the Word of God!!!!!
