The least Sin is worse than the worse affliction; so thought our Puritan fathers.

The conscious is supposed to be the mirror of the soul. Like the mind the rest of our body is totally corrupt by the fall.

The apostle Paul didn’t even trust his own thinking and constantly knew that every thought was to be captured and presented to Christ.

2 Corinthians 10:5

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

The best understanding of the Greek word ‘thought’ is really “reasoning”; our reasoning is suspect.

So in reality we can’t even trust our own thinking. Now don’t go mad, or think you are crazy just realize the first idea to pop into your head may not be the best.

So how much praying do we need to do in order to not be on a ‘crazy train’; lots, so the list is getting longer not shorter ( hey nobody ever said being a Christian was easy). Watch what we say, examine what we think, who has time for carnal activities now, this is a full time job.

Don’t stress, remember the yoke of Christ is easy.

Matthew 11:29

J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

28-30 “Come to me, all of you who are weary and over-burdened, and I will give you rest! Put on my yoke and learn from me. For I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
