God chose WORDS as the means of communication between Him and us, and between us and us. Logically, mastering their use is critical—and perhaps the key to avoiding sin. There are countless verses in His Word about the power of the tongue—for either good or bad. The tongue is a lethal weapon—the easiest way to sin. At least 25 negative adjectives are used in the Word regarding the tongue, lips, speech.
Administrationally speaking, we are currently living in “Word War 5.” Adam lost “Word War 1,” using his God-given mouth to shift the blame for his sin. It is significant that some time after that God had to intervene and scatter people’s languages so they could no longer collaborate against Him, at least for a while.
