Guarding a Christian’s faith is difficult for any age and culture. One of the challenges we face is the use of the tongue.
James says the tongue is an “unruly evil, full of deadly poison.” Remember, he is writing to Christians.
When spiritual leaders participate in gossip, ridicule, or speaking against brothers and sisters, then we can destroy the faith of others.
We must rise up, guard, protect, and overcome his attacks and keep Christians from destroying each other. Whether through Facebook, texting, face to face, talking to others, or some other means, the use of the tongue in such destructive ways should not only be discouraged, but stopped.
