So, does our doing effect our being or the other way around?

We are whatever we are, and we do whatever we do. So, are we a product of what we do; OR is what we do a product of who we are?


An excerpt from the link above:
"""All evil, in men's hearts, is of the one called evil and lying; and all, that is of love and good, of the Lord. Things conceived with an evil and wicked heart bring forth only works of evil, and lead to suffering and death. Things conceived by men, with their hearts remade in the Lord, only bring forth works of love, joy, compassion, mercy, rejoicing and forgiveness, which lead you, and those around you, to salvation. Remember, those, who boast in their own works in God's name, are wicked and prideful, for they only seek after power and authority. Those, who boast only of the Lord's works for your sake, this honors the Lord and is not pride, but worship and praise. To the likes of these, listen closely, for they seek to be like the Lord and strive for righteousness, and salvation is their companion. Worry not that you have not all the answers and do not yet understand truth, for the Lord your God is Truth...and all answers are within, and are, Him. Have faith, and you shall be set free. The humble, penitent man shall see God. Open your heart to the Lord, and He shall come into you and make you His, and create you anew. Then will the things of this world fade and truth and love shine forth.""" ~ God the Father

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God...

For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose...

To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

"...I search the hearts and minds! And that spoken and unspoken, the Lord does know. Even all the thoughts of the mind, and the intent of the heart, is known by the Most High God.

So then, even that spoken by these, who seem oh so righteous before men, can not cover over the heart’s true intent by Scripture and elevated words...even those doctrines, covered in scarlet and purple, I know and do hate. For from the heart comes forth all things done in action and spoken by the mouth...nothing is born of itself. Rather, that done and that spoken was first born of the heart, even the innermost thoughts of the mind." ~ God
