Deadly Poison

“But no human being can subdue the tongue; it is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.” – James 3

“You have heard that it was said to an older generation, ‘Do not murder,’ and ‘whoever murders will be subjected to judgment.’ But I say to you that anyone who is angry with a brother will be subjected to judgment. And whoever insults a brother will be brought before the council, and whoever says ‘Fool’ will be sent to fiery hell.” – Matthew 5

“For out of the heart come evil ideas, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.” – Matthew 15

While thinking of these verses tonight a TV show came to mind. You know the one. Jerry makes a living by encouraging his guests to put the content of these verses on display for millions to see. I think the case would not be hard to make that many of our entertainment choices (movies, news, radio, music, TV, magazines and books) are essentially doing the same thing but to a lesser degree. It gives me something to think about when making my choices.
