On Clean and Unclean

He called the people to him again and said, “Listen to me, all of you, and
understand. Nothing that goes into a man from outside can make him unclean;
it is the things that come out of a man that make him unclean. lf anyone has
ears to hear, let him listen to this.”
When he had gone back into the house, away from the crowd, his disciples
questioned him about the parable. He said to them, “Do you not understand
either? Can you not see that whatever goes into a man from outside cannot
make him unclean, because it does not go into his heart but through his stomach
and passes out into the sewer?” (Thus he pronounced all foods clean.) And he
went on, “It is what comes out of a man that makes him unclean. For it is from
within, from men’s hearts, that evil intentions emerge: fornication, theft, murder, adultery, ¬∑avarice, malice, deceit, indecency, envy, slander, pride, folly. All these
evil things come from within and make a man unclean.”

Mark: 7:14-23
