Once we have died for this world, we have been crucified for ALL idols and all things of this world, and have been born again a NEW creature, pure and free. “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” (Galations 5:24) YET there is still a warning for those that have been born again to KEEP yourselves from idols. “Little children, keep yourselves from idols.” (1 John 5:21) It is a question about distractions! If ANYTHING other than God consumes you or distracts you, that is an idol!
The human body consists of blood, flesh, and bones. I think everyone understands what the body is. But where exactly does sin live? Does sin live in the body? The body is a vessel. Inside of this vessel, inside of the flesh, is a spiritual being!
Jesus said, “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.” (Mark 7:21-23)
