Be Aware of With Whom You’re Having Those Internal Conversations

“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”
–2CORINTHIANS 10:5

A not-so-long-ago discussion touched upon a few of the thoughts previously explored in these pages.

That chat had to do with a person’s internal dialog with ‘himself.’

One of the main topics covered was that perhaps the conversations one has “with myself” are something quite more than that.

Moderns are taught that those conversations in one’s head are the total product of SELF. This is quite a new teaching, perhaps just one- or two-hundred-years-old.

Like most modern narratives, it fails to satisfy and it fails to explain much of what takes place during these conversations.

The Running Conversation in Your Head – A collection of narratives about the voices in one’s head.

How loud and insistent those voices become are determined by several things; none of which, of course, are covered in this article–which is, quite naturally, designed to drag away any who are interested from the truth of the matter.
Hearing Voices

Several questions were posed concerning these supposedly “internal conversations.”

As memory serves, NONE of the questions were answered in a manner which would have benefited the other person.

HOWEVER, there were other questions which were posed which were SUPPOSED to get the one doing the answering to think a bit on the matter.

“IF these conversations are with one’s self, why do so many report that they ultimately include suggestions on self-harm or self-destructive behaviors?”

“IF these conversations are with one’s self, then why do so many claim that they urge various self-destructive acts?”

“IF these conversations are with one’s self, why are so many left upset and disturbed by them?”

“Are that many frightened of themselves?”

“Why do so many who have these ‘internal conversations’ report discovering they have a completely different personality of which they were previously UNAWARE?”

So many moderns are so used to having these little discussions with what they suppose to be themselves.

But, what if the conversation is with another entity–an entity who wishes NO GOOD to the one having the conversation?

The modern world pays a GREAT DEAL of attention to these ‘internal conversations’–as well as where a person’s thought might originate.  The world is almost unanimous in urging its readers that thoughts originate inside of their heads.

“If you believe that your thoughts originate inside your brain, do you also believe that television shows are made inside your television set?”
―-Warren Ellis

IF the reader paid more and CLOSER attention to these ‘internal conversations,’ he might be surprised at what he learns.

The reader might also gain a new-found appreciation for 2CORINTHIANS 10:5.

“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”

After a lengthy period of disagreement, the conversation cited at the beginning of this piece ended with little agreement OTHER THAN ONE SHOULD BE AWARE  OF WHOMEVER ONE IS HAVING AN INTERNAL CONVERSATION.

WHAT does the reader think about all of those little conversations he has “with himself“?

HAS the reader EVER considered that those conversations might be leading the reader somewhere he originally didn’t think of going?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
