Mask or No Mask

By Michael Patrick, Ph.D.

We argue, and fight, and call each other names. Do our masks really protect us?

Jesus was challenged for his “unwashed” disciples, who did not obey all the “cleansing” rules of their day. What might he say today about the many conflicting rules?

“Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them.”

…”He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person.” -Mark 7
