You said it yourself. Don't you like to be taken seriously?
By this, do you mean that all christians have soft hearts?
Wouldn't it make sense to you that in some
areas a heart is soft and in some
other areas it needs to be made soft ?
Wouldn't it make sense to you that for Christ to make His home in our hearts means a progressive migration further and further into our personalities?
So the condition of the heart for the believer is not a binary matter completely.
Rather being conformed to the image of Christ obviously involves a process of conformation, cosequently a process of the heart towards God becoming more and more open, trusting, and "soft".
I withdraw and apologize for calling your question stupid.
Hey, my heart must have gotten softened !
