Filtering: Capture every thought for Christ before speaking



Have you ever said something you regretted, or that made you wonder how you could truly think such a horrible thing? We need to apply our filter.

No Filter: Heart --> words or deeds
"But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. These are what defile a person. "
Matthew 15:10-20

"We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ"
2 Corinthians 10:5
