beautiful minds

There’s an interesting short series on at the moment called Beautiful Minds – OK it’s not to everyone’s taste and it’s buried in the Freeview schedule. The title is based on the film of the life of John Forbes Nash Jr. But what might a beautiful mind be?

Philippians 2:5-6: Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus – a Christ-like mind

Roms 12:2 (JB Phillips) Don’t let the world around you squeeze you into its own mold, but let God re-mold your minds from within – and then we will be so in tune we won’t have trouble figuring out what God wants us to do

Philippians 4:8 (NIV) whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things – a clean mind

The Newsboys have a song about that last one “Something Beautiful”. There’s something in us that wants to know is it OK to … would it be so bad if … we kinda want to know how close to the edge we can go but that isn’t how the Bible is written.
