If any man among you seem to be religious, & bridleth not his tongue,but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. James 1:26 Christianity & The Tongue As good Americans we've come to believe that we can speak whatever we want, whenever we want, as long as it's 'honest'. Well, all of that should change when you become a Christian. In order to represent Christ properly here on earth, we are required to learn new patterns of speech. The power of the tongue to both destroy & edify is a major topic in both biblical testaments. As Christ’s ‘bodies on the ground’ part of our Christian job description, if you will, is to speak life & not death. Most of us weren’t trained in this vision from the beginning of our lives. When we experience difficulties, we tend to discuss them as they appear rather than waiting in faithful silence for God to show us the higher purpose. Learning speech that is consistent with a divinely guided life requires that we retrain the heart, the mind & sometimes even visceral body reaction. It certainly is not always easy to master these changes during hard times. Still, it is an aspiration that is fundamental to the Christian walk.

Good reminder, Gaye. I'm not American, but freedom of speech is often used as an excuse for very poor behavior. We all need to learn the balance of when to speak out, and when to remain silent. One tiny critique is to avoid using the ampersand for "and" in general writing. This might help explain: http://www.betterwritingskills.com/tip-w002.html Blessings! Deb
