1 Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. 2 And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”
3 Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. (John 9:1-3)

    Do you know what came to me today. It was that no how much we wash ourselves we are never clean. As soon as you step out of the shower dead cells are already accumulating. If you let them sit around for a while we start to stink letting all who come close to you aware of your filthy state. But most people do not get to that state because we have cleansing rituals that remove the dead cells before anyone, even you yourself, can become aware of them. But they exist. Imagine if you house has an automatic dirt removal system that got rid of dirt as soon as it appears. Do you think you could live in that house. It would exterminate you as soon as you set foot in there.

    I think of heaven like that. Which is why mankind cannot go their in his state. Even the righteous person who thinks he doesn’t sin and lives in his self righteousness. He could never get into heaven because he would still be suffering from the sin that he can be righteous without God which is sin.

    The only way to get to heaven is to have a sinless, righteous permanent shield which is through Jesus Christ.

    Our concept of evil is different from God which is very fine tuned and God eradicating the evil the Devil planted in this world would really affect many of the good wheat. What we call good may not be good in God’s eyes which is why God says in the Bible that the Day of God is an awesome and terrible day because evil will not be able to stand in his presence. And many we consider good or righteous will be destroyed because it is only with the blood of Jesus Christ will any man be able to survive.
