Dis-Ease of the Mind

Dis-Ease of the Mind

Alcoholism is a disease (dis-ease) of the mind. The demon dwells in the heart and tells the mind how to act, when to act and what the acts will be. A hardened heart comes from the same place, one does not have to be an alcoholic in order to have a dis-ease in their life that creates a hardened heart.

When life becomes unsettled and the people around you are running to-and-fro this is the time when we should find peace and calm. Maybe this was the reason I went to church, of my own accord, as a small child, looking for peace and calm.

Unfortunately, as we have discussed previously, when “grown-ups” or other people in our lives continually dispel what we hear, what we see and what we believe after a while we begin to change and morph into something else. The dis-ease begins to take a toll and the “tools” we once had are now rusted and broken. We turn to things that are easier to manage and that usually end up managing us.

Jesus makes clear that the dis-ease of the mind and heart are serious business. “Laws” are fine, but they are meaningless if the heart and mind are out of balance and uncaring.

Mark 7 NKJV

14 When He had called all the multitude to Himself, He said to them, “Hear Me, everyone, and understand:
15 There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man
16 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear!”
17 When He had entered a house away from the crowd, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable.
18 So He said to them, “Are you thus without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him,
19 because it does not enter his heart but his stomach, and is eliminated, thus purifying all foods?
20 And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man.
21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.
23 All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”
