Amen. When you see those who claim Salvation acting and talking in ways that does not become of a Born Again Believer. They in the Flesh, Carnal minded. The Spirit of GOD causes one to act intelligently, decent and in order.
Regranned from @hideandseekministries - How important are your words? As a follower of Jesus, does it really matter what you say?
The Bible says, "If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless." (James 1:26 NKJV) In James 3, it also says your tongue is like a rudder of a ship. What you say leads the course of your life.
Avoiding foul language and coarse joking is not how we are saved. But if you want a close relationship with the Lord and want to bear fruit in your life, you must be a doer of the Word and not a hearer only (James1:22). The Bible says that it DOES matter what you say. Your words are very powerful. They can direct the course of your life for bad or good. It's up to you. James makes it clear that if you can't control your tongue "your religion is useless". *****
