More Serious Than a Heart Attack
What is humanity's greatest problem? G.K Chesterton, noted writer and apologist, thinker, journalist, wrote a pivotable article on this subject. The London Times posted a question for public response in its editorial section with this question. “What is wrong with the world?” Chesterton answered the question with characteristic wit and directness: “Dear Sir: Regarding your article 'What's Wrong with the World?' I am. Yours truly, G.K. Chesterton.”
Evil is our great problem and what makes matters worse is that we generate the evil that destroys us. In Matthew 15, Jesus says "...what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. These are what defile a person.” (Matt 15:18,19).
Our heart is the problem, and the solution to this "heart" condition often evades us. But Jesus, in this chapter from the Gospel of Matthew, lays out the solution to the deepest problem of the human condition.
