"Take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." What does that mean? We are to submit every part of our lives to God, down to our very thoughts. Every deed and every action begins in our thoughts. There is no such things as an unintentional evil impulse. It all begins in our thoughts. The thoughts that we think determine the path that we walk. There are no secret thoughts that are hidden from God. He knows our every thought intention and every desire. Any evil or .... thought that we hold onto and nuture will someday reveal itself in our actions.
