Because your mind has been captured!
You have been told NOT to think! Your MIND – the way you use your mind to think has been drugged, deluded and controlled. This world, this society and its people tells you how to think and mainly not to think for yourself at all and instead they train you to follow along, to go with the crowd and you blindly follow along without questioning anything. The world is as it is today because it does not think!  I am appealing to you to think, to think afresh! 
         Think, Think again! I’m appealing to you to think seriously!
Who made all of this? How did we get here? Question everything and seek real answers! Test everything, accept only what holds true. Take a fresh look and engage your mind. Think for yourself! But what are you to think about? First you must think again about God! Can you explain our universe without God? Can you not see that our Creator has left his mark on the whole of creation? As you see life collapsing all around you the call of the gospel is to think again and to think in the light of the teaching of the Bible.
           The great message of the Gospel;
                                You are called upon to think!
Our natural thinking is prejudiced and influenced by this world, corrupted going all the way back to and beginning with Adam’s fall and that’s why it has gone all wrong. You have acted in ignorance but now it is time to think again about all these things starting with God and how you relate to him. We all need a fresh approach! Repentance means thinking in a new way! Change your mind, start thinking in this new way and God will show you the truth in all things. 
​Therefore, THINK AGAIN, and CONVERT, for the blotting out of your sins, so that times of refreshing may come from the face of the Lord,                                                              Acts 3:19
Now in those days John the Baptist came preaching in the deserted places of Judea, and saying, THINK AGAIN! For the kingdom of Heaven has drawn near.                               Matthew 3:1&2
Jesus came into Galilee proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, the time has been fulfilled, and the kingdom of God draws near. THINK AGAIN and believe in the gospel.                                                                                                                                                 Mark 1:15
And Peter said to them, CHANGE YOUR MIND and be baptized, each of you on the name of Jesus Christ to remission of sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.           Acts 2:38

                                  The actions God has taken!
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility.
                                                                                                                              Ephesians 2:13-16
That is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
                                                                                                                       2 Corinthians 5:19&21

                   What is the first thing for you to consider?
And yes, I am encouraging you to think. Think for yourself!
Who made everything? If you can come to a real conclusion of who made you then you have arrived at the right starting point. This is where we start; GOD FIRST. Start with him.
What was I made for, what is my purpose in this life? I’m sure you probably also thought to yourself that there has to be more to life, or what happens after I die? These are questions that no one really has the answers for except the one who made us and who made everything.
Should not a people inquire of their God?                                                                       Isaiah 8:19
Come now, let us reason together says the Lord                                                              Isaiah 1:18

                           The second thing for you to consider;
What is your relationship to God and with God? Most of us consider ourselves to be our own boss and rarely think about who made us or what our relationship to God actually is. That is because we are caught up in our own circumstances and our own pursuit of happiness. I’m sure that anyone who seriously considers this question would say that they ought to have a relationship with God. Or that their relationship with God ought to be much better. So what’s the problem? Let’s begin by considering who God is and who I am. God is holy, righteous and just and me, I’m none of those things – and in this world such qualities have become quite foreign. Maybe you can begin to see that there is a separation or quite a distance between you and our God. How to come to God, how to approach him and what action are we to take? 

                The Actions you can take!
We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.                   2 Corinthians 5:20   But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.                                                                            James 4:6-10
“And now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers. But what God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer, he thus fulfilled. Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago.​  Acts 3:17-21
