“Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God,
to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.
And do not be conformed to this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…”
This world is deceptive. We can easily numb our minds with computer games (spider solitaire for me). This is no different than being controlled by drugs or alcohol – it is just a different way of escaping our reality. I read a report about computer games and television that said that when we play these games, we skip the work part of our brain and skip right to the pleasure center. By doing so, real work loses its consequence of giving us pleasure. To reroute the brain waves, we must stay away from these games or tv and interact verbally with others.
