Kara as a case study, is a new feature on the blog in 2019. She’s decided to help us in analyzing some matters; she does this by sheer honesty about her life. You’ll be hearing a lot about her ?.
Today, Kara is an ambitious millennial Christian. She has good drive about her professional life. She’s in stride to ensure a good plan up till her retirement years. Kara is a a Christian: she loves the Lord and fellowships at a good bible-believing church. Finally, Kara is a millennial.
Dear Kara is prone to facing a problem that some other ambitious millennial Christians are facing today: using her mind, rather than the Bible, to judge.
She’s curious and often ready to learn; she’s an adherent to the blog post – blow your own mind. For this reason, she reads blogs, books, listens to podcasts and watches documentaries. She’s so used to this that it’s imbibed into her daily routine; she either listens while in transit to work, during her lunch break or as she’s falling asleep. Her mind is growing fertile. We are proud of Kara; she has a growing intellect, emotional perspective and a strengthening will.
Physically: Kara eats well ( we’re so proud of her). Kara goes a notch higher by posting all her healthy eating pictures online (for now, let’s ignore how this is a subtle attempt on her part to flaunt her good outings)
Kara’s body and soul are bouncing. What’s left? Her spirit.
On the mornings Kara doesn’t wake up late, she observes her quiet time. Kara remembers to listen to a message from her bible-believing church every once in a while – once a week. She’s not chanced to go for her mid-week service (except when on leave from work) but she goes on Sundays.
What that does to dear K is make her mind and body more fertile than her spirit. Imagine the daily nourishment on one hand and the average unpredictable nourishment on the other hand.
Consequently, she over-rationalizes homosexuality as a Christian, she permits a level of lasciviousness. She creates ‘Modern Christianity’. Her perspective is but a subjective 21st century skewed lenses.
Kara has an open mind, as it is said, to many matters. She considers the many possible sides and she gives varying worldviews a chance. The trouble here is: Kara’s bible isn’t as open as her mind is.
She judges everything on the basis of her experiences and understanding instead of judging her experiences and understanding on the basis of an unchanging God.
The solution is hidden in the whole exposition. Kara, feed your mind(knowledge-lover? Tick). Feed your body (fit-fam eater? Tick)
Above all, seek God’s Kingdom first and everything would be added unto you(Matthew 6:33).
“For we fix our attention not on things that are seen, but on things that are unseen. What can be seen lasts only for a time, but what cannot be seen lasts forever. 2 Corinthians 4:18″

With abundant love,
Do leave your comments below, we’re interested in learning.
The prosperity of the Believer’s mind is measured by how much s/he allows such mind undergo transformation by the Word of God!
That is, the more we allow the Word of God transform our minds, the more our minds and invariably all that we are and do becomes prosperous. A wo/man is what s/he is first in the mind.
Great write up, Debby. God bless you!
Thank you. I appreciate your taking time out to read and comment.
You’re right about our the word of God changing our minds and by extension, it goes to change our entire outlook to things.
Hmmn. I must confess that Kara sounds a lot familiar… I was Kara until some time ago when I realised that my ‘open mind’ was getting too open, almost without boundaries. I was very knowledgeable in other things but my knowledge of the Bible was weak, and so, I was more intellectual in my approach and outlook to things. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit helped me to realise my error and brought me back on track. This is a very good write up, Debs. ??I look forward to reading more about Kara.
You’re very right. The boundaries should be the bible and not intellect.
Thanks for the compliment. ??
I know Kara very well and sometimes I’m like her. The truth is, if we don’t strive hard to know God’s word, we will definitely be carried away and become a butter Christian. I like the picture quote up there, it truly makes sense.
Great write up Debby! The picture quote makes perfect sense too.
This post reminds me of myself, my friends around and the whole millennial Christians. We all have a bit of Kara in us all, I guess.
Hi, my name is Miss TwentyFive and I just created my own blog. You can check it out, read my first post and maybe decide to stick around?
