2And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.
3For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
5Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?
6He answered and said unto them, well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, this people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
15There is nothing from without a man that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
20And he said, that which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
21For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
22Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
23All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
The word of God is forever true and no dot from it shall fail to come to be.
When God made man, he made us in His image and likeness, the beauty of the spirit, soul and body, when sin came, all HELL was let loose!
THE HEART OF MAN IS DESPERATELY EVIL, WHO CAN KNOW IT?
Wickedness ran riot, inhumanity of man-to-man, gross idolatry, evil-doings from parent to child, child to parent, envious witchcraft manifestations between siblings, slander, murder, incest, generational deceit as the book of Mark describes the things that make a man (and woman!) unclean before God.
Self-proclaimed Christians,gurus in theological studies,MASTERS-OF-DIVINITY (Like the re-known scholars- Pharisees and scribes of old!)are not exempt from these malicious acts which defile, the way that seem right but the end thereof is death and destruction because our number one enemy has it all strategically mapped out from the onset.
Which way forward?
THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIGHT!
JESUS CHRIST, the one who knows us more than we know ourselves, the one who can deliver from generational curses, bondages of evil character manifestations that hinder and the sinful nature that oppresses
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
