A World Of Evil

My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires. If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless. (James 1:19–20, 26, NIV 1984).

My Musings – A lot of anger in the world today, physical and verbal. A terrible thing in general, but especially when exhibited by Christians. We often find it difficult to not sin in our anger (Psalm 4:4), which “does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.” No wonder so many are turned off by “religion.”

My Advice – Let’s “keep a tight rein on [our] tongue,” and on our blogs, e-mails, texts, etc. “Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body.” (James 3:5–6, NIV 1984).

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
