Acts 2:40-41 - he pleaded with them, "Save yourselves from this corrupt generation."

NIV With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, "Save yourselves from this corrupt generation." Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.
KJV And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

The apostle Peter was preaching the first sermon to a newly formed church. Just before this, he is calling people to repentance. But being saved from 'this corrupt generation' implies that the people were not just individual sinners, but a product of the mindset of a generation. Therefore, their thoughts were not to be focused any more upon the prevailing mindsets, but upon by the spirit and truth of God. Becoming a Christian changes the way we look at everything; including ourselves. The gospel forms a new generation within the corrupt generation in which we live.
