Christian Anatomy 101(somehow this did not get published)

I grew up with the belief that what I took into my mouth could determine the outcome of my salvation–where I spent eternity.  Jesus, the great professor, taught otherwise–see Matthew 15.  He said, it’s not what goes in the mouth but what comes out of the mouth–or out of the heart.  It’s a heart matter, not a stomach one.
