It's not about thoughts perse, it's about the condition of your heart.. and your thoughts are a direct reflection of that.
The Christian walk is about newness of heart. The Psalmist says, "Create in me a clean heart, oh Lord and renew in me a right spirit" the reason is
that the heart is what needs to change, that kind of change is lasting.. if you only change an action then eventually you will go back to just the way
you use to be, because the heart has never changed.
Show me a man who spends time devoted to thinking about money and I will show you a man who will strive toward making it. Show me a man who spends
much time devoted to thinking about murder and I will show you a man who will someday kill.
Where your thoughts are, your heart is also - where your heart is, your actions will follow..Christianity is about changing that heart to be one which
is filled with love of God and neighbor continually, rather than having a baser heart.
