    Default Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God

    How corrupt is the human heart?
    If the human heart is irredeemable, how could Jesus say the pure in heart
    will see God because that would be impossible.

    The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
    Gen 6:5

    The tongue of the righteous is choice silver; the heart of the wicked is of little worth.
    Prov 10:20

    The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.
    Prov 15:28

    Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
    Matt 5:8

    For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. 20 These are what defile a person.
    Matt 15:19-20

    You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
    Matt 22:37

    The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick
    Jeremiah 17:9

    So where is your corruption.
    If the heart can be cleansed and bring forth good things for a righteous man
    it cannot be corrupted in and of itself.

    So I see no corruption, I see an inevitable rebellion against God because of
    how it has been made to exist in communion with God, without which it
    destroys itself and dies.

    We inherit from Adam an aloneness, and separation from God that will destroy
    us inside.

    The more we justify ourselves and our sinful acts and intentions the more it will
    decay and destroy us.

    One of the first lessons we learn is to pretend something to get attention,
    lying, to manipulate. Once we go down this road it is difficult to stop.

    Now if Jesus could not save our hearts and straighten us out, what is the point
    of the witness of the church, or walking in the light, or over overcoming sin, and
    being a good example if we have overcome nothing.
    So the heart must be capable of being purified and set true to God and righteousness.

    We could not love God with a corrupt heart, because that would be dishonouring Him.
    The cross purifies us from all unrighteousness, including our hearts.

    If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
    1 John 1:7

    The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
    Luke 6:45
