Knowing this [the heart always leaves its footprint on the brain], we are more prepared for research suggesting that the brain of the angry person is different from the brain of the pacifist, or that the brain of the homosexual is different from the brain of a heterosexual. Instead of denying or arguing with these observations, we would expect them: the Bible predicts that what goes on in the heart is represented physically. But the Bible would clarify that such differences do not prove that the brain caused the thoughts and actions. It may very well be the opposite. Brain changes may be caused by these behaviors.
