Discussion for James 3:10

  • Brianna vs 10 on James 3:10
    Excellent reminder. So many christians have become comfortable with using profanity. How can we praise God and curse out the same mouth!?!?!?! True the tongue is a difficult thing to tame, but there is a difference between actively trying to utter pleasing speech and just simply giving in to bad behaviour. With God all things are possible. If we want to overcome a problem, he can help us.
