This site will feature Bible-based articles some days, silly posts and quotes at least twice a week and facts about Jack the Ripper-to begin with.

These are my notes on a lesson Phillip preached about our speech.
Speaking words is like opening a feather pillowcase or like toothpaste-once you get it out, you cannot put it back in the tube.
Matt. 12-“…every idle word…be judged”
Eph. 4:11-12, 15, 25, 29, 31-“teachers, speaking truth in love”
Why should we allow God to work to change us? He can then use us. It is an adventure. God…your soul…services…exciting…fulfilling…tender mercies, kindness, forgiveness, thankful, word of Christ dwell in you, teaching, admonishing
Col. 3:8-9, 12-15-“anger, wrath, blasphemy, filthy language, do not lie”
vs17-“Do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks”
What does this show us?
1) I have control over my words. Freud was an atheist-hostile to Christians but he said that what we say must come from inside.
2) My words matter-strong, moral, spiritual character. What if you had an electrical board over your head that flashed everything you said? We do-our words are our ad campaign.
Actions to take-start change within
Col. 3:9-10
If you have a serious problem with your car, you have to go under the hood; restrain and retrain your tongue.
Col. 3:8; Eph. 4:21
When you stop to think about what you’re saying, you also stop to think about what you’re thinking. What’s in your heart affects what your speech is about. Use words as tools, not weapons. Eph. 4:29
We must go through the baggage of our mind and take out the weapons
