The Darkened Nous

The darkened nous and the pure in heart

They love God. They want Him and they desire Him to come and live with them forever.

Or do they?

The pure in heart shall see God (Mt 5:8).

They pray to Him and they, at times, spend hours telling others about Him, bringing them to God.

Or do they?

The pure in heart shall see God, but the nous that has been shuttered by sin can produce nothing other than its true fruit: darkness.
