So do away with all impurities and remnants of evil. Humbly welcome the Word which has been planted in you and can save your souls. James 1:21The Word of God is holy. It cannot abide where there is any uncleanness. Uncleanness of soul begins with pride, grows with human anger and takes root through bitterness. The remedy for all these ills is humility, the virtue which prepares our soul to receive the holy Word of God, and so save our souls.
