A good man produces good out of the good storeroom of his heart. An evil man produces evil out of the evil storeroom, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart. (Luke 6:45)
“I know he’s done some terrible things, but he’s really just misunderstood.”
“Yeah, he cusses and yells and lies sometimes, but he’s really a good person.”
“Okay, so he cheated once and got violent a couple of times, but I know he’s got a good heart.”
Do you know what I think Jesus would say to all of that?
“That’s just silly.”
