“Isaiah was right when he said that you honor me with your lips, but your hearts are far from me. You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to your traditions. You nullify the word of God and do many things that deny the authority of his word. Your teachings are but human rules. You worship me in vain.
”Out of a person’s heart come evil thoughts: sexual immorality, adultery, and offensive vulgar desires . . . envy, greed, theft, and murder . . . arrogance, deceit, malice, and slander that leads to foolish behavior.
“All such evil thoughts come from an unclean heart. Cast out the sin in your heart and you will have fellowship with me, my Father, and his Spirit.” – Jesus
Mark 7:6-10, 13, 21-23, 1 John 1:8-10
