Something to think about,
Jesus Christ never trusted human nature, yet He was never cynical nor suspicious, because He had absolute trust in what He could do for human nature. The pure man or woman is the one who is shielded from harm, not the innocent person. The so-called innocent man or woman is never safe. Men and women have no business trying to be innocent, (Hummmmmmm???) God demands that they be pure and virtuous. —Oswald Chambers
Still thinking about the whole idea of innocence vs. pure thing. No time today to ponder here, but possibly it will give you something to think about today as well.
