The Views Behind the News: Popular belief says, "follow your heart, trust your heart, let your heart be your guide etc." However, nothing could be further from the truth. Multiplied souls throughout the ages are paying an incredibly steep price for "following their own hearts" Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked:who can know it? The Bible on the other hand instructs us through Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. The world tells us to trust ourselves. The Bible tells us to trust the Lord.
