We quite glibly confess, This was soulish, for it came from self.
But we do not really see what the soul or self is.
Then one day God’s Mercy comes to us, His Light shines upon us and His Voices announces to us with severity and solemnity: What you frequently refer to as your self is self!
You have talked lightly and easily about the flesh.
You must see how God hates this and will not allow such to continue.
