Alexander: addressing the problem

Saturday, January 5, 2019
    [Jesus:] “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit. You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.”
    —Matthew 12:33-34 (NIV)
    The New Testament is uniformly consistent in seeing something as being wrong in man himself... These analyses of man are based on man’s responsibility for his evil actions; they are not saying that it is simply his emotions that have gone astray: it is man’s will which is the central problem.
    ... Denis Alexander, Beyond Science, Berkhamsted: Lion Pub., 1972, reprint, A. J. Holman Co., 1973, p. 163-164 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 12:33-34; Luke 6:45; John 3:19; Rom. 1:20-21; Jas. 4:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, apart from You, I am without hope.
