    12 Ways to be Transformed by the Renewing of Our Mind

    Renewal begins by offering up our whole body, soul, mind and spirit to the Lord. Luke 10:27 tells us, “And he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind…” It takes a conscious effort to present oneself to the Lord by disciplining ourselves for godliness.

    Hi,
    I'm Plinshree. I'm really bad at making introductory posts.
    I've been voted most likely to become the crazy cat lady and I guess that pretty much sums me up. The more I'm around people the more I appreciate my cats and my very small, but closely knit circle of friends.


    I'm no stranger to Christianity but I struggle with it. To be honest all I see around me are Churches being run like businesses instead of ministries, and I won't even get started about the people I find there. or some of the things I've seen go on in these places.

    I think I'm just looking for a place with genuine believers that I could, perhaps, learn from as I go.
    I'm not the type you can stick in a neat little box with a neat little label. Anyway, hoping to get to know you through your posts and such.

    -Plinshree

    G'day Plinshree,

    Please don't blame God for the problems in Christianity.
    I agree with you about many modern churches.

    Aside from that it is good to fellowship with God's people.

    See you in chat !

    Oh no, I don't blame God. I feel badly that His Public Relations team sucks so badly sometimes. I think we will get on fine, Agua. Looking forward to some of that fellowship you mentioned. -Plinshree

    Welcome, Plinshree. It is indeed unfortunate (to the point of being disastrous)that many churches have taken to using marketing gimmicks instead of doing what Jesus did when He was on earth. He fed the hungry, healed the sick, clothed the naked and people flocked to Him - no gimmicks necessary. That's the stuff the church is supposed to be doing.
