This physician ( http://WDJW.net/HeartDoc
) shares that GOD is both
able and willing to prevent evil by helping us successfully
(Philippians 4:13) http://WDJW.net/Guard
(Proverbs 4:23) the heart
(Matthew 15:19) which would otherwise drag (Jeremiah 17:9) us to
thinking/saying/writing **and** doing evil as Epicurus has noted.
Those of us who are born again (John 3:3 & 5) can prove that our
benevolent (Jeremiah 9:24) omnipotent GOD exists as explained at

It is written that with GOD, all things are possible (Matthew 19:26)

It is written that we are Jesus' friends (John 15:14) if we love (John
15:12) each other as He loves (John 15:13) us and that we, who are
Jesus' friends are recognized (John 13:35) by this greater (John
15:13) love that we have for one another.
Just as Jesus loves us by convincing us of our needs as in the example
of His convincing Peter of his needing his feet washed by Him, we love
one another when we http://WDJW.net/ConvinceItForward
our need to
always say/write that we're "wonderfully hungry" (
) in **all** ways including especially
caring to "convince it forward."

Actually, all who **show** that they personally know (1 John 4:8) GOD
will agree it's written that "GOD is love" :-)

Indeed, the most important thing that is missing in the Bible is
Apostle Paul's secret ( http://bit.ly/Philippians4_12
) concerning how
to be hungry and satisfied at the same time.

It is written that we're not to lean on our own understanding
(Proverbs 3:5) but to instead trust the LORD our Mighty (Isaiah 9:6)
GOD with all our heart, which means to lean on Him to "learn about
what is right."

The perfect (Matthew 5:48) **logical** answer to your question is
simply "yes" according to the Holy Spirit-guided exegesis of Biblical
verses given above with all glory ( http://bit.ly/Psalm112_1
) to GOD

Indeed everything LORD Jesus Christ of Nazareth does is useful :-)
