When we look at the teachings of Jesus, there are a few questions we must, at some point, ask ourselves. Consider the following:
Can Jesus’ words be taken at face value?
Does He really mean what He says?
And do the words of Jesus apply to me today?
All of them? Or just part of them?
And how can I tell which do and which don’t?
Or, were His statements and promises meant only for those who lived in New Testament times?
And again, how can I tell?
The answer to these questions will have a profound impact on how you understand the Sixth Beatitude. There Jesus says, “Blessed are the pure in heart, (why) for they shall see God” (Matt. 5:8).
