Looking for the Temple of God? Look in the mirror!          Home

Where is the Temple of God? You! His Spirit dwells in you.

How do you defile the Temple of God? By what comes out of your mouth, your words, what is in your heart is made known by your words.

Does what you are eating defile the Temple of God?  No!

What comes out of the mouth, (words); Not what goes in (food) defiles the Temple!

God will destroy those that defile the Temple of God!

God does not dwell in Temples made with hands. (God is not in Buildings or Locations, God is in People!)
