70: Neuroscience and Belief (with Paulo Jobim)

Learn from Paulo Jobim about the brain science behind believing in Jesus and being transformed into His image.

  • “He revealed Himself to me, and then I started to use science as a tool to understand God’s creation.”
  • “I understand the brain as a God masterpiece.”
  • “Every kind of learning produces change; the brain is made to be changed.”
  • “This change we are experiencing in Christ uses the learning process, the memory process, but it’s completely different because when Christ lives in you, it changes you.”
  • “When we meet Christ, we transition from ourselves to Christ’s self. The power of the Spirit creates in us this alternative self.”
  • “This change of self happens only through the power of the Gospel and the Spirit operating on us. This is not any type of learning; it is a special type of learning that only Jesus can offer.”
  • “Only in Christ can you be fully transformed.”
  • “Beliefs are what guide our behavior and how we see the world around us.”
  • “For people to actually believe in God and live this experience of believing, they must have personal experience with God.”
  • “Christianity is a different type of religion because God demands obedience, and for us, obedience means to sacrifice our own nature, our own self, to make God get bigger.”
  • “When God reveals Himself and we accept through faith, the way we see and perceive the world changes dramatically. Then we can start to be different persons because we are having Jesus live in us. This is why it’s so important to learn from God and live the truth we learn – not only intellectually know God, but by our practices.”
  • “When you are confronted with something that shows you are not making decisions based on yourself but based on Christ’s self, you can see your brain activities in different places of your cortex.”
  • John 3:30
  • Galatians 2:20
  • Romans 7
  • “Science and the Christian faith can help each other; they are not in conflict.”
  • John 4:35
