I don't agree that believers can ever be "defiled", but are clean every whit.
Think of it, Jerry. If we can be defiled, then we would walk around in a constant state of defilement. What line would you draw for what defiles us and what doesn't? Am I defiled when I lie to someone? Am I defiled when I covet something that isn't mine? Must I confess everything I do in order to not be defiled?
Hi glorydaz , I wonder if Jerry know about the OLD MAN and the NEW MAN ??
Or what Paul calls the Old Nature OR the New Nature !!
Probably not !!
