Traditional Christianity speaks of the Transformation of the mind but give little explanation how this actually works. Paul's comment in Rom. 12: 1-2 seems to indicate that our minds are transformed for us. In one sense this is true in that God opens our minds through His calling (John 6: 44 & 65). Once we have the revealed information we must develop self-discipline and grow in character. God expects us to obey Him and his laws as well as grow in grace and knowledge.
