What it means to think like a Christian

“The effort to think like a Christian is . . . an effort to take seriously
the sovereignty of God over the world he created,
the lordship of Christ over the world he died to redeem,
and the power of the Holy Spirit over the world he sustains each and every moment.
From this perspective the search for a mind that truly thinks like a Christian takes on ultimate significance,
because the search for a Christian mind is not, in the end, a search for the mind but a search for God.”

—Mark Noll, The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, p. 253 (JT’s emphasis)

(HT: Justin Taylor)

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.

One thought on “What it means to think like a Christian

  1. Well said. For me, to think like a Christian means simply as the bible puts it …BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST, hence we think from a spiritual perspective, or should, that is.

    Blessings
