Stopping the parade of mortal beliefs

Jesus stopped a funeral procession by putting his hand on the bier and reviving the young man. See Luke 7:11-15 . Jesus' entire mission was doing just that—destroying the belief in death and mortality and bringing spiritual life and immortality to light through his teachings and healings. Paul tells us how we all can find freedom from mortality and the power of death: "To be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace." Rom. 8:6.

All through the Bible we find admonitions to destroy the elements of the so-called carnal mind, which is death. Think how many passages in the New Testament alert us to the need to overcome bad thoughts and deeds with the qualities of God, Love! Christ Jesus' Sermon on the Mount deals with this very thing.
