In the Greek language, purity has retained the same importance over the centuries. Pure is someone who is clean, not polluted or dirty, and dirty is the one who has dirt, impurities which have not been eliminated.
The modern word detergent denotes the material we use daily to remove dirt, small and large, from our body and our environment.
And it is quite understandable that the same is true of the pollutants of the soul, the outbreaks of infections that have either already settled in our bodies and torture our everyday lives or cling to our lives and compose the morbid mental environment within in which we live inefficiently, tired and loaded.
In any case, we know that all pollutants do not require the same process to be removed, but there are easy and difficult pollutants and we use a different detergent accordingly. The same goes for our mental health where daily purity – an effort to remove old pollutants that are installed in our soul’s web and affect it daily – is a prerequisite. In all cases, Christ explained that the purity of the soul, the inner world, comes from the process of hearing His words.
