Purity of Perception
What we see comes more from our mind than from what is in the environment.
From the book of Titus:
Tts 1:15 Unto the pure all things [are] pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving [is] nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
Tts 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
What we believe motives our actions.
The world is full of actions and beliefs.
But how much is true?
Many times beliefs are not based on real facts, but what individuals and nations want to believe.
Our concept of what is really true starts in our minds.
This is why it is important to have a rational , pure mind.
If we are deceitful, then we will see deceit everywhere.
If we are unfaithful, then we will see adultery everywhere.
If we are abusive , then we will see abuse everywhere.
If we are evil, then we will see evil everywhere.
We will assume that the rest of the world is just like us.
This is worldly mindness.
If we are pure , then we will see purity everywhere.
If we are innocent , then we will see innocence everywhere.
If we are kind , then we will see kindness everywhere.
This is child like thinking.
Not childish…by the way
Why I mention this
I see so many false accusations slung at innocent people at this time.
Court rooms are filled with railing accusations against others.
I see whole nations deceived by propaganda that is demonic in nature.
Multitudes follow what the media says, or what negative people say, and allow this to form their reality.
What the bible says as true is irrelevant to them.
Wars have been launched over lies, because of lies that started in the minds of those in power.
Millions of people have died.
This is a defiled world, and iniquity abounds.
Those who are defiled and unbelieving in their thinking need to repent of their sins, or they will destroy themselves and others.
Those who are pure of mind need to become aware of the evil around them, without becoming part of it, so they will not be victimized.
In psychology, it is called projection, where the mindset of the individual is projected upon others, instead of being open to what the other person has actually done, or actually believes.
Only through repentance and God’s help, can ALL know the truth of their real circumstances.
Even with modern events, the bible still tells the truth, if one knows how to “rightly divide (interpret) the Word.”
The Word is Truth.
