Biblical Thinking

What is the task of biblical thinking?

The question is too broad. But how about these for starters:
  1. Bringing my thinking into conformity with the worldview espoused in the Bible.
  2. Reforming my thought patterns to reflect biblical values upon the whole of life.
  3. Learning to live in such a way that there is a decrease of the extent to which my life is lived on the basis of lies, denial and rationalizations and a corresponding increase in truth, righteousness and justice.
  4. The process whereby my heart begins to take on the values of heaven.
  5. The process that yields the "peaceful fruit of righteousness" and shalom. (Hebrews 12:11)

What would you add? change? amend?

how about just, "being conformed by being transformed"?

How about this? "Biblical thinking is the process that will keep you from destroying your life, your marriage, your kids, your job, your self-esteem, and everything that you love."
