(Matthew 15:11)
The food we eat does not affect our moral character. Nothing in this world has any power to defile a heart while it remains outside and is not allowed to enter. A man may be a coal-miner, always black and grimy, always working in dirt, and yet he may have a soul white and unspotted.
This is true of living amid temptations. So long as we keep them outside they have no power to injure us.
