Cartoonology: There is Great Theology in Cartoons and Comics

Being aware of our tongue can be most beneficial.  The tongue is a very important part of our body and life.  It is made up of numerous muscles and organs that enable us to do some very important things such as speaking, eating, swallowing, tasting, etc.  We could not do without our tongue.

The Bible, however, presents a very dismal, but honest, view of the tongue by referring to it as a fire that can get out of control and cause a lot of damage and defilement.  It is described, as being set on fire from hell.  It is furthermore described as an unruly evil, which is full of deadly poison, which cannot be tamed.  You can read about it in James 3:1-10.

Although the Bible speaks so pessimistically about the tongue, it can be controlled.   Not by mere man but by the one who created it.  James offers this hope in verses 17-18 of chapter 3.

How many times have we all said something we wish we could take back or repeated something we declared we would never say again?  The Apostle Paul identifies.

Romans 7:19, 24-25a (NLT)
19 I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.
24 Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death?
25 Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord.
