Scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg also points out that “good” fruit is circumcised fruit. But how do you go about circumcising fruit? That is, how do you circumcise the actions of your life?
With a sharp knife?
Nope! A knife doesn’t go deep enough!
You simply purify your acts of compassion, friendship and concern. In other words you produce genuine good (circumcised) fruit when your actions come from innocence and giving credit only to the Lord God, rather than from some self-centered motive. Innocence allows good actions to become genuinely spiritual and not oriented to status, reward, reputation or any worldly (terrestrial) motives.
The angels of heaven not only love, they do so in ever-increasing levels of innocence to properly glorify and worship the Lord.
