We are not in pursuit of purity, we are in pursuit of God.
When we know Him and His truth, purity results!
We should not try to satisfy an appetite given us by God with ‘food’ handed us by the Devil.When we’ve failed, there are two paths we can go down: defeat or freedom . .

FREEDOM: forgiveness, truth, community
