The Bible commands Christians to be transformed by renewing their minds with the Word of God. This project proposes a biblical mind transformation plan targeting men specifically, as well as the broader body of Christ. The plan equips Christians with the skills to learn how to identify, control, and eliminate the five primary negative thoughts. Once identified, these unhealthy thoughts will be replaced with a plethora of healthy self empowering thoughts resulting in a renewed Christ centered mindset. The research for this plan will be based on the Holy Scriptures, neuroscience (brain research), and cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). Pre and post-assessment surveys will be given to all participants to measure the effectiveness of this project in changing their thought lives. Men who wish to be delivered and set free mentally from harassing thoughts such as, regrets of the past, fear of the future, unhealthy comparisons, self-condemning thoughts, and temptations of lustful thoughts of all kinds, this research project is their deliverance. The goal is to renew the mind one thought at a time.
