Anglican Theological Education

Kaua hoki tō koutou āhua e rite ki tō tēnei ao; engari, kia puta kē, arā kia whakahoutia ō koutou hinengaro, kia whakamātautauria ai e koutou tā te Atua e pai ai, te mea e pai ana, e manakohia ana, e tino rite ana.

Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able know the will of God—What is good and is pleasing to him and is perfect.

– Romā / Romans 12:2
