At every turn, those who pretend to be Christians give themselves away.
How many times have those who claim to be shepherds appealed to the virtue of their own hearts?
How many times have supposed men of God said “The Lord knows my heart”?
Yes, He does.
And there are many Bible verses which inform the believer what the Lord knows of a man’s heart.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
Jesus was even more detailed about the condition of man’s heart.
” For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.”
Man’s heart is so abominably wicked, a man cannot know his own heart.
“He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool:“
Man’s heart is wicked. EVERY man’s heart is wicked.
“The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
The only power to counter man’s wicked heart is Jesus Christ.
There is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
