"3. Then I said that they were indeed healthy as far as their body was concerned, but not in their soul, ‘For whoever practices harlotry and fornication is very sick in his soul. Through this sin a person’s heart hardens from day to day, becomes ever more unfeeling and merciless towards its fellowmen and in the end loves nothing but itself and the object of its lust, not for the sake of the object though, but only for the sake of satisfying its lust. Such a heart then flees God’s Word which admonishes it against its evil desire and in the end even becomes hostile to those who carry the Word of God in their heart and live accordingly. Many of you suffer form this sickness and that is why I returned to you to heal you from this very bad and fatal disease. Those of you who know that they suffer from this deadly disease should entrust themselves to Me and I shall heal them.’
4. At this My announcement many promptly leave the house, for the offenders fear that I may divulge their secret and so they take to their heels. Among them were some adulterers, some guilty of incest and many of both sexes guilty of self-abuse, and they were relieved to be out of My sight.
5. Not that there were not many who would have liked to be healed of this vice, but it was the disgrace! Because they counted as honourable, well-regarded people, and it would have been embarrassing to have their neighbours find out about their infirmity of flesh. Yet they did not consider that they gave themselves away by taking to their heels in response to My offer.
