YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

The Power of Conformity

Video:

Topic:

Conformity

Bible:

Romans 12:2

Discussion Starter:

The word conformity means, “the act of matching attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors to group norms.” As the experiment in the video points out we each have the ability to conform to social pressure.

In Romans 12:2 the Apostle Paul writes, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

There’s a popular saying right now: It is what it is. It’s a phrase which acknowledges the patterns which Paul talks about. When you say the phrase, it is what it is, it’s giving into  certain things which will happen, both good and bad, beyond what you think you can change. But Paul challenges us to try to fight that! In fact, he says that when we fight that mentality we’ll be able to experiment some– “to test and approve what God’s will is.”

3 Questions:

  1. Have you ever tried an experiment on your friends?
  2. Would you rather know God’s will or not know God’s will?
  3. How would knowing God’s will change things for you?

Chew on this:

If we aren’t supposed to conform how are we supposed to fit in?
