6The tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, (James 3:)

I'm sure you noticed that my website if full of words. Many of those words are repetitious, I've said them before in different ways, attached to different subjects, and sometimes they're just repeats of what I've already said.

Please understand that I recognize this problem, and I don't like it any more than do you. I get tired of saying the same thing. I prefer to move on to something new and different. Jesus tells us:

11Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. 12If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? (John 3:)

I was perfectly content to be Spiritually blind. When we don't know we have a deadly cancer we don't worry about it. But when we learn the truth, it turns our life upside down. This is what's happened to me. There are many times I wish I was again living in my ignorance. I certainly don't like having to tell the world what they don't want to hear (and in many ways, neither do I), what they very likely don't understand, or what they can't do about it if they do understand.

Isaiah tells us:

9Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: (Isaiah 28:)

I can only tell what I know. A first grader can't teach college. He can only teach what he's been taught, if that. I'm given information and understanding a dribble at a time. I write what I've been shown the best I can in my unskilled, feeble way. As I get it, you get it (albeit sometimes years later because I have to set so many stories and studies aside as new, seemingly more important topics and information presents itself).

6The tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, (James 3:)

I'm a people-pleaser. I like to make people smile and feel good about themself. I'm an encourager. I teach using positive reenforcement. Yet almost all of my writings for the past 6 years has been biting and hard and critical. I don't like to write this way. I don't think you like to read it either. So why do I do it?

Six years ago I was shown a spark that is well on its way to burning down a building containing my family, my friends, and many people I don't even know. If you knew a building was about to go up in flames, what would you do? Of course you would do all you could to get the people out of the building. Am I right? And if the person didn't believe you, and refused to go (let's say it's your mother we're talking about), wouldn't you drag her by the hair kicking and screaming if need be to save her life?

I'm dragging people by the hair. They may well hate me for it, or at best consider me a kook. But I would rather be a kook, and a wrong kook at that, then to see myself as a coward who would rather watch people burn then to have them think ill of me.

So if I'm extremely wordy, repetitious, have a bad attitude; I hope you will forgive me. And what's even more, I hope you get something out of what I'm saying.

Someday, when I'm a hundred and ten or so, I'll try to put everything I've written into a logical and readable order. But until then, don't hold your breath. Precepts upon here-a-littles keep flooding in every hour it seems.


9In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise. (Prov 10:)

1My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. 2For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. 3Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. 4Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. 5Even so a the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter little fire kindleth! 6And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. 7For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: 8But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? 12Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. (James 3:)

36But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. (Mat 12:)

[Just showing you I am aware of this, and the consequences for my actions.]

1I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2Tim 4:)

19Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins. (James 5:)
