Within this teaching notice the mosquito that was destroyed and demolished and how it what used as an example related to destroying and demolishing wrong thoughts.
Furthermore, those in Christ cannot allow wrong thoughts to drift, float, hang around in their mind. We are instructed in God’s word to take every thought captive. I believe, wrong thoughts have an agenda and somehow gather with other thoughts to form or influence our life in the wrong way. We are responsible to control our thought life.
2 Corinthians 10:5-6 (Notice, this is personal)
We destroy arguments and every proud obstacle to the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, 6 being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.

3. All areas of my renewed mind in Christ, activate, in Jesus name! (Romans 12:2, James 1:22, 2:22)

2 Corinthians 10:5-6
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
1 Corinthians 9:27
But [like a boxer] I buffet my body [handle it roughly, discipline it by hardships] and subdue it, for fear that after proclaiming to others the Gospel and things pertaining to it, I myself should become unfit [not stand the test, be unapproved and rejected as a counterfeit].
Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].
But be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth].
You see that [his] faith was cooperating with his works, and [his] faith was completed and reached its supreme expression [when he implemented it] by [good] works.
For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
