MIND OF CHRIST vs THE REPROBATE MIND

The Mind of Christ vs The Reprobate Mind
1 Corinthians 2:16
…But we have the mind of Christ.
Then Philippians 2:5 says,Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: (a mind that completely embraces God). However,Romans 12:2 advises us, “And be not conformed to this world: but be all of you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.
The Mind of Christ is the same as the Mind of God. It’s a Mind that is connected to the Mind of God through the Holy Spirit. It only thinks to do the will of God in Love, Faith, righteousness, Holiness, obedience and submission.
In contrast, The Reprobate Mind is an ungodly mind. A mind without God in it. This mind is anti-God in thoughts, words and action. The Reprobate Mind openly challenges and rebels against God’s authority, righteousness, holiness and Christ Himself. Romans 1:18-32 specifically Says,” For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them”.
Note this is the word of God. Those with a Reprobate Mind brings death and the eternal judgement of God upon themselves.
2 Timothy 3:1-7. But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
John 8:32 And all of you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
