When it comes to the renewed mind the importance of good, reliable information, and the ability to process it, is absolute to Godly outcomes. If Satan is going to encourage Christians to fall into his agendas he is certainly going to warp, twist, and influence the quality of information we use to manage our lives. The quality of information and the ability to test and approve it according to Romans 12:2, is critical to the development of a transformed life and knowing God's will for it. Information is the DNA of our thoughts, without information we have no thoughts, but, as Christians, we must allow the Holy Spirit to lead us to the truth and help us sift the validity of the information we use to decide our subsequent actions. Without the Spirit's input, we would typically rely on our emotions to decipher information for us and then they would decide what our response should be. Emotions are useful to help us gauge our initial assessment of a situation or experience, but they are poor judges of truth and should never be part of our decision-making processes. I have found the more emotional a Christian is, the less they can operate in the spiritual realm. The less they can operate in the spiritual realm the further away from a renewed mind and transformed life they'll be. More importantly, they'll be in a position where it will be very difficult for them to know God's will for their lives. Romans 12:1-2.
