The Warning Against Wantoning

As Christian workers, worldliness is not our snare, sin is not our snare, but spiritual wantoning is, viz.: taking the pattern and print of the religious age we live in, making eyes at spiritual success.

'Every Day Light' with Selwyn Hughes
Purity - not a popular thought

Now that we understand what Scripture means by the term "heart" - the core of our being - we ask ourselves another important question: What does our Lord mean when He uses the word "pure"?

I offer the following thoughts in hopes of adding constructively to what has already been said.
