"Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you,
and ye shall be clean from all your filthiness,
and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you:
and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh,
and I will give you a heart of flesh."

"I'm against sin. I'll kick it as long as I've got a foot, and I'll fight it as long as I've got a fist. I'll butt it as long as I've got a head. I'll bite it as long as I've got a tooth. And when I'm old and fistless and footless and toothless I'll gum it til I go home to Glory and it goes home to Perdition." ~ Billy Sunday ~

and saw none but the woman,

hath no man condemned thee?"
She said, "No man, Lord."
And Jesus said unto her, "Neither do I condemn thee:
go, and sin no more."
~ John 8:11 ~
