To the pure all things are pure, but to the corrupt and unbelieving nothing is pure; their very minds and consciences are corrupted.
Adolf Hitler once remarked that if you repeat a big lie often enough people will believe it. One of the biggest lies in the world is the old saw, “Love is blind.” This is simply false. Love, above all, sees. Hatred is blind, to be sure. A person filled with hate can see absolutely nothing good about the object of his hatred. But love can see, not only sin, but the person behind the sin. Those corrupted by hatred see black as black, then grey as black, and finally even white as black. Those who are filled with love see, even in the blackest sin, the human being who is essentially distinct from his sins and for whom Jesus Christ died. Today, purify your mind with love and seek to see others as God sees them, not as their sin distorts them.
