Q3. Sins of the Tongue

Recommended Posts

Q3. (Colossians 3:8) Why are sins of the tongue so easy to slip into? In what ways do they damage us and others? How can we break free of sins of the tongue?


Part of the answer to this question is given by Job 33.3 "now I have opened my mouth, my tongue hath spoken in my mouth" So often we just do that-open our mouths and we begin to speak. It is almost reflex. This much more true when we are excited or angry. To a degree filthy language is habit and is absorbed from the surrounding culture. To break free we need to foll the advice of the notes " When we slip into our old vocabulary, we stop, ask forgiveness of God and any who may have heard us, and then substitute a more appropriate expression. After a dozen or several dozen

repetitions of this process, our vocabulary gets much cleaner."
