Cleanliness is Next to Godliness Did Mom and Grandma Lie?
Growing up many of us heard this verse from our mother or grandmother did they lie to us?
No, not really but the fact is the verse "per say" is not in the Bible at all. There is, however, verses which, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness." was born.
There are verses from which the comment was articulated not, however, those particular words being used. The washing away of our sins by being baptized is one such cleansing that would pertain to the verse.
Just remember regardless of how dirty you get that you can be washed in the blood of the lamb. You can be saved from yourself if you have belief and faith even if it is only the size of the head of a pin. Yes, that's all that it takes.
If this has peaked your interest let me help you out the saying was first used in a sermon back in 1778. You can get the scoop here if you wish.
I hope you have a blessed Sunday and my all the lives that you touch be blessed.
