Summary: Thoughts are real deeds, deserving punishment or praise. Failures to love God with the mind include mindless meditation (superstitious mysticism), worship, wisdom (superstitious interpretations of thoughts, coincidences, and impulses), and teaching (failure to study). Every point of sanctification requires the mind. Gain information for the sake of insight for the sake of intimacy. Love involves enjoying the person (use your mind to discover how to experience God’s attributes) and bringing joy to the person (please God with the right use of the mind).
