May 18 Peter asked what the parable meant. He replied,         Are you also without understanding? Dont you see that what goes into a man cannot defile him, because it doesnt enter his heart but his stomach, and when digested it passes out?” In saying this, Jesus pronounced all foods clean. Jesus added, “What comes out of a man defiles him, for from mens hearts come evil thought, fornication, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, witchcraft, slander, arrogance and foolishness. All these coming from within defile the man, not the eating with ceremoniously unwashed hands.
