God does not interfere with our free will, or the wrong decisions we make, but He warns us about their danger.
He warns us through His Word, His servants, our conscious, and our intelligence.
It is up to each one of us to listen to His Word, consider them with our intelligence, and make the right choices.
“…For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.” (Mt.15:11-19)
The question is:
How can all sorts of contaminations come out our heart? It’s simple:
The brain absorbs the information sent by our eyes, and if we are not vigilant, watching, it immediately “sends” it to the heart.
Therefore, what we believe, suppose, or assume makes us decide and take action, in most cases wrongfully, because we act on an impulse, emotion, feeling… And this happens especially to young people who are easily influenced.
Many times, you even stop and think, but because you don’t want to be laughed at, made fun of or excluded from the group you do what everyone else does.
We have Eve as an example of this:
“She saw” that the fruit of the forbidden tree was good and ” pleasing to the eye.” That’s why she stopped listening to God and ate it.
The devil could not force her to do something, but used lies to persuade her, taking advantage of her admiration for the fruit to influence her and make her fall. But, worst of all she didn’t fall alone! She also made Adam fall.
So, youth, what have your eyes been seeing and what has your heart been devising?
Who knows maybe you no longer have good eyes for anyone and with every passing day your feet are slipping into hell, even within the church.
God left several warnings in His word, but you’re so bad spiritually that you can’t even hear them.
Then ask yourself:
How can I prevent my heart from being contaminated because of my corrupt thoughts? How to escape from the evil appeals, for which the world always invites us?
Look what King David did after a bitter experience with his eyes after learning his lesson: “…I will set nothing wicked before my eyes” (Psalm 101:3)
He knew the weakness of his eyes and the harm they can bring his heart. Wisely, David kept focused in the things of God so his eyes wouldn’t corrupt his heart.
