Most on earth are very confused

God says-Jeremiah 17:9-- The heart is treacherous and desperate, who can know it?--Means a heart can make one reason falsely which most accomplish. And bring many pains upon themselves. The flesh has a voice, and the spirit has a voice. The righteous listen to the voice of the spirit and push the flesh to the rear( Matt 16:24)-- Few can.

Perhaps, you need a new heart of flesh?

It all depends on where your heart is. If you think your heart is treacherous and desperate then guess what?.As the scripture says.....As a man thinks in his heart so is he. It brings him upon himself and others many pains when he sees himself desperatley wicked. It truly is a contagious diseased way of thinking and only those who see themselves how God sees them are immune to the disease.

God has described the wicked to his view in the bible. To warn all in advance what he does not approve of-1Corinthians 6:9-11, Galations 5:19-21. Added to all the false God worship and partaking off the table of demons,( 1Cor 10:21) as usual satan has 99% mislead. Jesus compared these last days to Noahs day. Few will listen.

He just needs to trust what God has "Written in our hearts" instead of the words "written in ink" and stone from the OT and interpreted by men.

Not at all, God has described in the scriptures that a way that man thinks is what shapes who is he. When God said "consider the lilies of the field how they are arrayed", he was not talking about being outwardly adorned in a nice pair of slacks and polo shirt, he was saying....if i created the lily of the field so beautiful then how much more then are you created in my own image.......The beautiful and lovely things were created for the beautiful and lovely.......... The reason you call that which God created wicked, is down to one reason and that is, that is how you see yourself. If you can see in anyone beyond their outward appearance you will see God in them everytime. Blessed are the pure in heart(they only see Good) for they see God.

Actually Jesus was teaching that if God who created the lilies and clothed them with beauty, etc--he would assuredly do that for mortals who have faith in him. Because Jesus summed Matthew 6 up perfectly at verse 33--Therefore, keep on seeking-FIRST- the kingdom and his( YHVH(Jehovah) righteousness and all these other things will be added to you.( sustenance, covering, spirituality)--- Yet most seek $$$ and pleasure first.
They fail to disown themselves to follow Jesus( Matt 16:24)


Gods image = to love and reason.
God has already exposed wickedness. Obviously few mortals even know.
