James 3 - NIV

7 All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind,

8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.

9 With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness.

10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.

11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring?

Are You Religious?
Shared by: Derrick Tuper on Jan, 2017
Summary: Typically, a person's idea of being religious is just going through rituals and practices associated with the faith. In James 1:26-27 God defined what it means to be religious. So regardless of what we think it means we need to learn what God said it is.

Silence of the Lambs
Shared by: James May on Oct, 2012

THE SINS OF THE TONGUE
Shared by: Rodelio Mallari on Dec, 2010
Summary: Much can be said of a person’s character by the way he uses his tongue. Jesus said that "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh" (Mat. 12:34). In Jas. 3:6, 8, the tongue is "a fire, a world of iniquity", and a "deadly poison."
