Scriptures on "Unhealthy Thinking"
detests the thoughts of the wicked, but those of the pure are pleasing
Many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.
Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their
glory is their shame. Their mind is on earthly things.
Those who live according to the sinful nature
have their minds set on what that nature desires.
How long, O men, will you turn my glory into
shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods?
For although they knew God, they neither

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2)
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! (Hebrews 9:14)
