Evil Words

Evil words should never be spoken.  What kind of words are evil?  Let's check it out.

Irritating words.

Proverbs 15:1  "Grievous words stir up anger."

Hasty words.

Proverbs 29:20  "Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words?  There is more hope of a fool than of him."

Irreverent words.

Malachi 3:13,14  "Your words have been stout against me, saith the Lord.  Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?  Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts?"

Enticing words.

Colossians 2:4  "And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words."

Flattering words.

1 Thessalonians 2:5  "For neither at ay time used we flattering words, as ye know."

Insincere words.

2 Peter 2:3  "And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:"
(Feign meaning fake)

Proud words.

2 Peter 2:18  "For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness."  (wanton, meaning immoral, indecent, or malicious, spiteful, cruel)

Malicious words.

3 John 10  "Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words."

These are words that a true Christian will leave out of his vocabulary.  We don't want to be guilty of speaking in this manner, I'm sure.  I know I don't and I'm pretty sure that you don't either.  Life is too short to spend our time speaking these kind of words, isn't it?  Grandma Joan
