Gen 6:5, we see the words, the THOUGHTS OF HIS HEART.
In Mt 15:19, we see the words, OUT OF THE HEART PROCEED...THOUGHTS. Our heart produces thoughts. The kind of thoughts we have depends on what kind of a heart we have. The kind of a heart we have also determines what voices we choose to believe and follow. As it is written, THE THOUGHTS OF HIS HEART WAS ONLY EVIL-Gen 6:5. OUT OF THE HEART PROCEED EVIL THOUGHTS-Mt 15:19. A person that has an evil heart will have many evil thoughts. His conversation and what he does will also be evil. Yet he may think of himself as a righteous person that does no wrong. As it is written, ALL THE WAYS OF A MAN ARE CLEAN IN HIS OWN EYES-Pv 16:2.
Nevertheless, the consequences of wrong thinking is death. As it is written, THERE IS A WAY THAT SEEMETH RIGHT UNTO A MAN, BUT THE END THEREOF ARE THE WAYS OF DEATH-Pv 16:25.

imaginations. It is written, ALL THE IMAGINATIONS OF THE THOUGHTS-1 Chr 28:9.
We may get a thought and then from that thought have many imaginations of fearful
situations or consequences. We may get a thought and then imagine horrible and
evil things against God or others.

It is written, THEY KNOW NOT THE THOUGHTS OF THE LORD-Mic 4:12.
If a person does not read all the Bible, how can he begin to understand the thoughts of the Lord?
Often we may have wrong thoughts and may say the wrong things. As it is written, MY THOUGHTS CAUSE ME TO ANSWER-Job 20:2. Beware of what you may say. Be slow to speak.

They will not follow wrong thinking, but they will flee from the voice that wants to lead them astray-ref Jn 10:5.

THE VOICE OF STRANGERS-Jn 10:5.
What thoughts do you have? What thoughts do you obey?
Are your thoughts in line with the Bible or the world?

THOSE THINGS, WHICH YE HAVE BOTH LEARNED, AND RECEIVED, AND HEARD, AND SEEN IN ME, DO: AND THE GOD OF PEACE SHALL BE WITH YOU-Phili 4:8,9.
