Where the world comes to study the Bible

1 Thessalonians 5:22

Fatal Errors in the Mind

Corrupt affections indulged in the heart and evil practices allowed in the life will greatly tend to promote fatal errors in the mind; whereas purity of heart and integrity of life will dispose men to receive the truth in love. We should therefore abstain from evil, and all appearances of evil—from sin, and that which looks like sin, leads to it and borders upon it. He who is not wary of the appearances of sin, who avoids not the temptations and approaches to sin, will not long abstain from the actual commission of sin.

Matthew Henry
