Passage: 1 Peter 3:10-14
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 56 mins 14 secs
You would never think of starting a raging out-of-control fire in your neighborhood, would you? Listen to this lesson to learn that that the Bible tells us that our tongue starts fires when we gossip, slander, and malign others. See that evil words that spew out of our mouths come from our sin nature and are destructive to us and to the object of our anger. Hear a listing of types of sins of the tongue, including lying, yelling, flattery, judging, and bitter rants. As we move on in this chapter we begin a study of suffering unjustly. Find out that we are always to be ready to explain what we believe to unbelievers.
