WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO “Cast down Imaginations?”  By Ed Elliot

  WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO “Cast down Imaginations?”  

                                                                 By Ed Elliot

“Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;  and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled” 

(2 Corinthians 10:5-6).

Simply put, if it doesn’t line up with who God is then stop thinking or meditating on those thoughts.  Paul tells believers to bring these rogue thoughts into the obedience of Jesus because Jesus said, “When you see me, you see the father “(John 14:9). Jesus is the knowledge of God.  If what we believe about God does not line up with the character of Jesus, we should take hold of that false view and cast it down. It is an imagination that should no longer haunt or deceive us ever again.  Because the way we view or see God determines the quality of the relationship we have with Him. If our perception of God is inconsistent with whom Jesus portrayed Him to be, then we are worshiping a false image of God.  If we are worshiping a false idol, not the true God, our lives will be in turmoil.

     Knowing Jesus prepares us to reject the false views about God religion tries to make us believe.
