The Atomic Bomb was once the most feared and coveted weapon of the world’s nations. Since the United States of America poisoned the inhabitants of Hiroshima and Nagasaki back in 1945, scientists, employed by world leaders, have developed even more deadly missiles filled with hydrogen, uranium, and plutonium. These types of exterminators were the premise former president George W. Bush offered the U.S. public to gain support to send our loved ones off to the slaughter house. Consequently the phrase “weapons of mass destruction”, also known as WMD’s was coined. It is a fact, these weapons do exist, and should be feared. But there is a greater weapon of mass destruction. This weapon could be considered a biohazard armed incorrectly. Nuclear missiles are mere water pistols compared to this weapon, the human mind.The United Negro College Fund’s slogan is “A mind is a terrible thing to waste”. That is an absolute statement. In addition, the potential of the human mind is endless. In fact, the mind is only limited by the imagination of man. The great inventions of the past and present validate the power of the mind. Communication has progressed from just the telephone to the World Wide Web, a tool that connects continents together once again. Scientists have learned to clone GOD’s greatest creation! Is there any more to be said about the ability of the human mind? Every thing tangible was produced by the intangible mind.
A wasted mind is indeed terrible but a misused mind is horrible. It was a misused mind that slaughtered six million with mustard gas. A misused mind nuked women, children, and the old men of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Trans-Atlantic slave trade, destroyed the identity of a people, was the fruition of a misused mind. The slaughter of Minister El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz was produced from a misused mind. As was the slaughter of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. The blood wasted on the soils of Rwanda was born in the bowels of a misused mind. The examples of a misused mind are endless, i.e. 9/11, the D.C. sniper, Virginia Tech massacre, and so on.
The mind, although powerful, is quite impressionable. It can be influenced by false doctrines from quack leaders, poisonous music produced in pop culture, and images plastered on cinematic and television screens. The poor souls whom slaughter the innocent in the name of Allah or Jesus are prime examples. They were somewhere, somehow influenced by the wrong ideology. Pop culture via music and movies; promote riches without honor, premarital sex, indulgence into toxic death and more. These lyrics and scenes distort and destroy the unlearned mind.
“Guard your grill, knuckle up”, warned Hip Hop legends Naughty by Nature, out of Jersey. Perhaps “Guard your mind, knuckle up” would have been more befitting in this wicked generation. The mind is the most powerful weapon known to man but also the most impressionable. Therefore, watch it. Watch your thoughts, they become your actions, watch your actions, they become your habits, watch your habits, they become your character, watch your character, it becomes your destiny. Cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of YAHWEH, bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of YASHUA, the MESSIAH!
