Lesson 21. THE DISCIPLINE OF THE TONGUE (JAMES 311-12) PART 4

by John Lowe
(Woodruff, S.C.)

General Notes
1 “The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.” (James 3:6)
2 “but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness.” (James 3:8, 9)
3 “With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.” (James 3:9, 10)
4 "You are Israel's teacher," said Jesus, "and do you not understand these things?” (John 3:10)
5 “Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.” (Proverbs 7:28)
6 “They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to burn their sons and daughters in the fire--something I did not command, nor did it enter my mind.” (Jer. 7:31)
7 “Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
8 “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” (James 1:17)
9 “What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source of your pleasures that wage war in your members? You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask.” (James 4:1, 2)
10 “By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?” (Matt. 7:16)
11 “You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.” (Matt. 12:34-35)
