What Is A Reprobate Mind

Does anyone know what a reprobate mind is? God has spoken to me about a very close person as having the mind of a five year old. He is 76 years old. Satan has slowly reduced his mind to a five year old. He does not have Alzheimer's disease.

strongax, Following the Lord has zero to do with how many follow the Lord, for Jesus says: "For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, else their deeds would be exposed. But the one that does truth comes to the light, so that one's deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." Many "choose" not to obey Jesus because the only thing holding them back is faith, that is their trusting that the Lord is more than able to change them and trusting that he is able to keep them from falling. So lacking faith and loving their sinuous life keeps them in bound to destruction and prevents them from getting right with God.

Catherine, is this really a good description of your husband? [He is] filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. [He] is full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. [He is a] gossip, slanderer, hater of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventor of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though [he] know[s] God's decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, [he] not only does them but give[s] approval to those who practice them.

Catherine, as painful as it is, do you think this man is just totally withdrawn from you and not reprobate towards God? You mentioned earlier that he has much patience. You might want to be thankful instead of suspicious.

//He looks fearful in his eyes. Also, angry in his eyes. Almost like madness to me.//

I am sure the man with the legion was worse off than that...insane in every sense of the word....but when he saw Jesus from afar off, he ran and fell at His feet and worshiped Him. Notice, Jesus wasn't even over where he was. He was afar off. And Jesus never even touched the man before worship was his response. Once he was delivered of the legion, he was found by others to be sitting, clothed, and in his right mind. So....what do you say to that? As long as we are manifesting ourselves, people foam at the mouth and act like lunatics. When Christ is living through us and manifesting Himself, not even the lunatic has a chance of staying like he is.

Catherine:

You said: What God loves, I love, is also Scripture

As Cluny pointed out, many have made this claim and been deluded into thinking that the way that they interpreted scriptures was the same way that God interpreted them (so they ended up going against what God wants, rather than in accordance with it).

There are also many things that God may love that are not in scripture. To mention a few: interlinear bibles, concordances, bible atlases, televanglists, altar calls, choir robes, and Christian blog sites. If God hates anything not mentioned in scripture, most people will need to seriously re-evaluate their own beliefs and practices.

If the churches today are full of the devil, then where is God?

Or is the devil more powerful than God? That kind of thinking was popular in the Dark Ages, when any kind of miracle was automatically assumed to come from the devil rather than from God (leading one to the conculsion that the devil could work miracles while God could not).
---StrongAxe on 5/17/10


If the man with a reprobate mind does not know right from wrong, how can he prefer evil over good? He doesn't know the difference. On the contrary, the church is not full of the devil. The church is the body of Christ and contains the Spirit of God. It is through ignorance that she appears contrary to the truth.

The man with a reprobate mind does not know right from wrong. He prefers evil over good. And he thinks that what he does is the right thing. He can do no wrong, my friends.

Catherine-- // just see for yourselves how Jesus felt toward religious people. He did not like them at all. //

YET, He sent Paul to minister to "religious" (superstitious) Greeks and to reveal himself, Jesus son of the TRUE God. The Greeks were religious but lost, and ignorant, worhipping false Gods.

The "religious" people That Jesus chastised so harshly, were those who were hypercritical. Hypocrisy was the sin of the Pharisees, not being religious.

Donna66, thanks for the answer. I knew she hadn't chosen the word herself, but by using "religious" and given the passages she gave it did not go with the context. Since the Athenians were supernaturalist. They at least acknowledged the existence of someone beyond their ability to understand who had made all things. Paul thus had the opportunity to introduce them to the Creator-God who could be known (Det. 4:35 1Kin. 8:43, 1 Chr. 28:9, Psa. 9:10) When evangelizing pagans, Paul started from creation, the general revelation of God. When evangelizing Jews he started from the O.T. (vv.10-13).
As Strongaxe mentioned, Jesus was against religious hypocrites. Clean on the outside so as to show righteous, but still dirty on the inside.
---MarkV. on 5/12/10


catherine:

The passage you quoted doesn't mention "religion" or "religious" once. Yes, Jesus was constantly criticizing the Pharisees, who were religious hypocrites. However, he wasn't criticizing their religion, he was criticizing their hypocrisy.

Today, when media skewers a preacher or family-values politician when he's caught in adultery, they aren't being anti-Christian, they are being anti-hypocrite.

The Bible also mentions good examples of religion, free of hypocrisy, in several places. Besides the verses I've cited earlier, remember Nicodemus, a Pharisee who saught Jesus earnestly, and ultimately had the honor of burying Jesus in his own tomb.
---StrongAxe on 5/12/10


HA, HA, HA. Religion and Jesus Christ. Why don't you look in Matthew 23:13-36 and just see for yourselves how Jesus felt toward religious people. He did not like them at all. EIGHT WOES>>>VERSE 25>>> "Woe to you, thank You Jesus, I could not make it without You, scribes and pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full of robbery and self-indulgence "you blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, [what a God] and He was here in the flesh, so that the outside of it may become clean" ahhh-that takes God.>>>Bite the dust
---catherine on 5/12/10


I agree that "superstitious" would be a better word than "religious". That is what the KJV calls it.
But if Catherine was using any Bible version but the KJV, the word used is "religious". It's not her word, chosen by her. But the term was chosen by some Bible translators.
---Donna66 on 5/12/10

Catherine, I disagree with your answer somewhat because the word you used is "religious" and should be "superstitious" This people were very superstitious because they were supernaturalist-they believed in supernatural powers that entervened in the course of natural laws.
Paul was saying that power comes from God for he says, "God has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings"
Being superstitious made no sense since God determined their appointed times and the boundaries.
---MarkV. on 5/11/10


Catherine, you are correct. Man continually tries to reach God, or tries to atain so-called godhood or nirvana through various means of rituals or ceremonies, all to no avail. We can try as many different formulas as known to man, like, burn 50 candles or burn 50 incenses or recite 50 prayers or fast 50 days, but God is very clear when he says that no human can come to God except by Jesus Christ. The beauty of this truth is that no matter how lost a person is in their religion, when they sincerely turn to Jesus for real salvation he will keep his word and he will truly convert them by his real almighty power. I am truly blessed whenever I witness a soul genuinely becoming saved and becoming born-again.
---Eloy on 5/10/10


catherine:

This all depends on just what "religious" means. The dictionary definition I quoted earlier is very similar to "faith", which Jesus always spoke positively about. "religion" itself occurs only in Acts 13:43, Galations 1:13-14, and James 1:26-27.

You may have a different idea of what "religious" means than everyone else does, but if you use erroneous definitions and read their meaning into the Bible, you arrive at erroneous conclusions.

Yes, it's true Jesus was constantly criticizing the Pharisees, but this was not because they were "religious" (since there were many such he did not criticize), but rather because their religion was misplaced (see James 1:26-27).
---StrongAxe on 5/10/10


Strong Axe>>>Just like God said last night, and I quote Him "People make a mess out of interpreting Scriptures". If you Read in the New Testament, you might understand more about how Jesus felt about religious people. Don't forget your concordance and dictionaries, Bud. Also, you need to look above and below Scriptures including the one you and I are referring to. Don't forget to study them. Anyone can read. But, do you really understand what you read when it comes to the word of God?

catherine:

Note that in this passage, Paul was praising them for their diligence in being religious, however, since he was proclaiming in knowledge what they were worshipping in ignorance, he was improving on thier beliefs.

Just what do you mean by "religious people"? There is no mention of them in the Gospels as such, only Pharisees (who were people who were religious only on the outside).

The dictionary defines religion as Belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as creator and governor of the universe.

Since the whole foundation of Christianity is faith in Jesus as Lord, this certainly fits the dictionary definition of religion.
---StrongAxe on 5/9/10


So Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said", Men of Athens, I observe that you are very "religious in all respects". For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with the inscription, TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you. Paul said, "He knew the real God. Who was unknown to them in spite of their extreme religiosity......Paul then declared that the God he worships just happens to be the real God. And is Creator, Governor, Saviour, and judge of the world..... My question to you is, Do you know God, today. If you do, that is all that matters, in this life. What a friend what a God, what a Saviour.++

Char, you are correct. There is no need to tell someone they are going to hell. Claiming someone is not save and going to hell is judging someone's heart, which no one has a right to do, since no one but God knows the heart.
I disagree with Cluny yet have no right to say he is not saved
I believe Cluny saw her answer on the blood and jump on it. Of course we know that God is Spirit, but God came in the flesh through the person of Jesus Christ. And His blood cleanse us from all unrighteousness. He opposes the Blood yet believes that when he has communion he is eating Christ. Now that would be difficult to prove since the bread never becomes Christ. And Christ never becomes a piece of Bread. Now is Cluny saved? only God knows, not I.

catherine:

You said: Jesus is against religious people.

Where did you get this idea? Can you cite chapter and verse? Many people on these blogs have this idea that "all religion is necessarily evil", presumably using their own definition of what "religion" means which differs than how the Bible uses the term. It's true that Jesus said that SOME religion is wrong (as is true with anything else), but James 1:27 gives an example of GOOD religion.

Catherine, what I believe you are saying as truth about God, you are saying it wrong. God will not tell you not to help someone. The Spirit will guide you to help someone. He will not guide you into not help someone. You just won't feel like doing it. But it does not come from God.
When praying Jesus did not pray for the world, but for those whom the Father had given Him. But don't mistake that into thinking He would tell you not to pray for others, that would be going against many scriptures. What Christ does is His right to do, but not ours.
---MarkV. on 5/5/10


the word "reprobate" is derived from the prefix "re-": "arrears, rearward or backward" + "prove or test". Thus a reprobate mind is a mind not standing a test, a repugnant mind, a mind that disses or refutes the truth and opposes God, a mind that has become hardened and degenerate. "And even as they did not like to retain God in knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are evil-mindedness. They will depart from the faith,...having their conscience seared with a hot iron. A person that is divisive, after the first and second admonition reject: knowing that one which is such is warped and sins, being condemned of one's self." Rom.1:28+ I Tim.4:1,2+ Titus 3:10,11.

---Cluny on 5/3/10


I have something funny to share along this topic....back when I was a baby Christian (a longg longgg time ago) I read the scripture in Isaiah 58, "Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and declare to my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins."

Thought God was speaking to me so I did exactly as the scripture said to do...declared to people their sins (in a nice way of course) but it wasn't received well at all....catherine, it takes a very special anointing to be able to point out someone's sins without hurting them.

A prime example of a reprobate mind would be the recent arrest of an armed man near President Obama's plane posing as a police officer.

Alzheimer's disease is not a "reprobate" mind.When God turns one over to a reprobate mind, it means that they become amoral.They take pleasure in sin and lust and have full function of their faculties including the memory which is unlike Alzheimer's patients.It is not a medical disease but rather a total disregard for God and man. It is an obvious pleasure in lust of the flesh with full cognition of what they are doing. They willingly engage in everything that God hates(even murder). Alzheimer's pts.show a measurable declination of cognitive function including short and long term memory and their behavior is relatively unconscious. There are medical treatments which can slow the progress or improve cog function. Not so with reprobates.

As the Reprobate are the antonym of the Elect or God's selected. The Reprobate Mind is going to have a broad range of meaning which will be context dependent ranging from the diabolical and ghoulish to simply the mind of one who is unsaved or nonselect.

A reprobate mind is one that is corrupt, totally wrong thinking, evil thinking, depraved, unprincipled, a totally bad person. That's per Webster's dictionary.

How do you know satan has done this? Reduced his mind to a 5 year old? Does that make his mind reprobate? Evil thinking all the time? I can't imagine a 5 year old's mind being reprobate unless he's possessed by the devil. Something isn't being explained correctly here.
