Heretical Wordly Spew vs. Christian World view PART ONE

There are only two types of people... Non-Christians and Christians.
Non-Christians aren't "less spiritual Christians" in that there is no such thing as a "Carnal Christian." THey are truly "those who live according to the sinful nature" and "have their minds set on what that nature desires."
They live by the sinful nature. Their minds are on earthly things.
Christians are those "who live in accordance with the Spirit" and "have their minds set on what the Spirit desires."
They live by God's Spirit. Their minds are set on heavenly things.
There are certainly different levels within each group.
So what do I think about when my mind is "neutral"? Is there such a thing? What do I think about when I am driving... besides not getting in a wreck? Where does my mind wander when I cannot sleep? Am I consumed by God?
MY FAVORITE HYMN is "I NEED THEE EVERY HOUR." It was written by a woman with lots of children like me. It was the only hymn she ever wrote. Perhaps because she summed it up in one big swoop.

This is something I have been thinking about for a while, too. One evening we had our pastor and an elder in our home to counsel Bob and I on my medical issues. The elder, who also is a NANC counselor, asked me a few questions, one of which really stuck in my mind. He asked, "What do you think about when you get a spare moment?" That question has been in the back of my mind ever since, and has helped me to realize what I DO think about. Sadly, it is not nearly enough about God. But, having realized that, I pray that God will help me change my ways of thinking, to more glorify Him.
