October 27, 2010 | Dallas Willard | | University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA “Transformed by the Renewing of the Mind: The Use of Scripture in ‘Spiritual Formation’” (1pm in ATO Chapel at TEDS)
The Apostle Paul tells us to “not be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” (Rom. 12:2) But how are we to go about renewing our mind? We will explain the role of scripture in the renewing of the mind, and the role of the pastor and the congregation in this process. We will also discuss the ways in which use of scripture fails to renew the mind-as often seems to be the case in our “Bible based” churches. What can be done about that? The larger picture of Christian “spiritual formation” will be discussed. How does it relate to “growth in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”? Does being saved have anything to do with transformation of character?
