Mark 7: 20-23 ” He went on: ‘What comes out of a man is what makes him unclean. For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance, and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man unclean.’ “

This all started when the Pharisees saw the Disciples eating food with unwashed hands and were offended.  Jesus gave the crowd a quick Anatomy/Physiology lesson when He concluded that all food (whether clean or unclean) goes into a man’s stomach, not his heart.  He then instructed the crowd by saying, “Nothing outside a man can make him unclean by going into him.  Rather, it is what comes out of a man that makes him unclean.” (Mark 7:15)    I’ve heard it said,  if you shake a man, you’ll see what’s in his heart.  For it’s deep within our heart that all wickedness abides.
