Don’t accept the “cookies”!

Computer “cookies” are small text files that search engines and online advertisers store inside your web browser on your computer. They help websites to know more about you in order to gear their advertising and services to you. In this way a website knows your language preference or your past purchases, for example. Many websites now ask users if they are willing to accept such cookies. While many times accepting cookies can be good, in other instances doing so may be undesirable, since it may give a website the ability to monitor your online activity. The important thing is, we have a choice. 

This leads me to ask, Are there mental “cookies” that we may have unconsciously accepted and are carrying around in thought?

The Bible counsels us to “let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:5), that Mind being the all-knowing, all-loving divine intelligence of the universe. This Mind is beyond a materialistic sense of intelligence—thoughts generated by the brain or affected by brainwaves and chemical processes. It knows its own spiritual creation, including you and me in our eternal, unchanging, spiritual nature as God’s image and likeness.
