And be ye not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your minds. Conformity means taking on the shape of something you are in contact with, such as molten metal taking on the shape of a mold in a foundry. This is a great method for making uniform castings, but it is not good for people, even though the same principle applies.

Being conformed to me means being transformed, because it is conformity to my transcendent image rather than anything of this world.
