I’m thinking about whether it is possible for a person to make a god of their mind. In her Barclay Press Conversation Café daily journal on Tuesday, Sierra Neiman said a friend accused her of making a god of her mind when she expressed an interest in going to graduate school. I quickly dismissed the accusation as having no merit. It certainly had no merit in that case, but now I’m wondering if there is any circumstance in which a person could make a god of their mind. The human mind is perhaps the paramount object of God’s creation and the instrument through which truth is found. But it is possible for the mind to corrupt itself to the point of positioning itself as greater than God. But a desire to go to graduate school is honoring to God and in no way usurps God’s position.
