The Lord God Almighty has asked me to write this Blog, not because he is on vacation, or is otherwise engaged, but because he is tired of repeating the same things in the same way. He wants to state it from a new perspective. The problem at hand is the large number of individuals who claim to be good on the outside, but have filthy thoughts on the inside.
They don't steal or commit adultery, and they would never dare tell a lie at this late stage of the game, but their thoughts are as corroded as the pile of garbage on the sidewalk. They never would be heard whispering words of slander or gossip, and the mere concept of having a "fling" with a favorite girlfriend would send them to their knees in prayer.
How then is it possible, that they would think of themselves as pure, when their thoughts are so impure. How is it possible that they expect to have the light of God shine through the darkness of their soul. Many people assume that anyone who has a tremendous amount of light in their heart must be doing something different, other than cleansing, and repenting. That is not the case.
In fact, that is all one needs to do in order to have the light of God emblazoned on your chest. But the repentance must be genuine, and from the heart. It must include thoughts, words, and actions. It must delve into the crevices of the mind, and excavate the filth of daily life. It must be genuine.
