What defiles a person?

In Mark 7:15, Jesus tells everyone that “nothing that goes into a person from the outside can defile him, but the things that come out of a person ware what defile him.”

Jesus made it very clear that a person is defiled by what they say and act and not based on what they eat. So many times the Jews used the Mosaic laws and traditions to point out defilement (outside appearances) while ignoring the true defilement (inside)

It doesn’t matter when in history I write this, we all are guilty of presenting to the world our clean and sinless persona all the while living in sin and hypocrisy.

I try to live my life consistently 24 x 7 whether at home, work, or church. And yet i fail.
