Yesterday i read an excellent article by Sam Storms on the Power of the Tongue. It speaks into core heart motivations and even the foundations of faith in Jesus. Here is an extract to wet your appetite:
James says it as clearly and forcefully as he can. He pulls no punches. The simple spiritual reality is this: If you say you are religious, if you say you love Jesus, but you don’t bridle your tongue but are given to gossip and slander and profanity and angry speech and destructive verbal criticism, your “faith” is worthless. Your so-called “religion” amounts to nothing. Your so-called “Christianity” is a sham!
