Addicted to Staying the Same: Thoughts on Repentance and Neuroscience

 

How do I change my life? That’s the question that rolls around our heads when we start thinking of resolutions, goals and commitments this time of year. “I WILL do this. I CAN do this. I MUST do this.” When I was in high school, I tried to curb my time spent playing video games. I grabbed an index card and wrote “NO” in thick Sharpie then taped it to the desk in my room. It was a will-power, grit-your-teeth approach that produced mixed results.

Really, though: How do I change those thoroughly ingrained habits and issues in my life? How do I change my bad reaction to bad news? How do I grow more loving and less self-focused? God’s Word promises to change us; 2 Corinthians 5:17 identifies us as “new creations.” But if what I am now is a new creation, there are days I wish I was a newer creation. 

Some recent findings in neuroscience may shed light on why repentance and change can come so slowly.
