“For from within, from the heart of men, evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, homicides, thefts, greed, evils, deceit, lasciviousness, envy, cursing, pride, pride come out foolishness. All these evils from within come out, and defile man. ”
(Mark 7: 21-23)
We waste time in political and religious discussions, trying to convince the other of his supposed mistake, but the writing urges us to avoid controversies since we do not waste time in endless debates about myths and spiritual lineages, or meaningless speculations, that no They help people lead a life of faith in GOD.
Because only faith in CHRIST can change the rebellious heart of man, where evil, deception and all opposition to the truth of CHRIST come out. The Word of GOD tells us that before accepting CHRIST, we were enemies of GOD, every desire of our heart was continually evil (Genesis 6: 5) and we were opposed to the truth.
For this reason, our call is to teach, to correct with love, to show the truth of the gospel, correcting with meekness those who oppose, because GOD may grant them to repent to understand the truth.
Let us avoid, therefore, foolish and meaningless discussions, as they engender strife and always think with all strategy to bring CHRIST to people and not to a vain, long and contentious discussion, because the battlefield is the heart of man, which CHRIST changes with his Word through the HOLY SPIRIT that dwells in each believer.
Beloved LORD, You changed our heart, when I was rebellious and full of evil for a new heart that now longs to obey you, lead us to teach others the truth with all humility and without going into foolish discussions. In the name of JESUS. Amen and Amen.
