Nov 04 – Mind over Matter

In Bromsgrove England, employees in a shoemaker’s shop were always complaining they were cold. The door to the shop needed o stay open to let solvent fumes escape, so temperatures could get as low as 8 degrees. The owner, Martin Connellan bought his employees heavy parkas, but they still weren’t warm enough. So he hired hypnotist James Kerwin, who proved you can retrain people’s thinking. Within five minutes, Kerwin convinced the employees to think the place was toasty warm. The temperature remained the same, but the people were deceived. In fact, they complained it was too hot – and it is often that way regarding our relationship with God. Paul, in the New Testament, warned people, who had refused to come to God through faith in Christ. He told them, that “… their minds the god of this world (Satan) has blinded….” And later he cautioned, “Do not be deceived…whatever one sows, that he will also reap”
