[FONT=PT Serif][SIZE=19px]A clear pond has no ripples unless a stone is thrown into it which creates turbulence in the tranquility. In the same way in Christian life it takes words of accusation, gossip and slander to steal away peoples peace and disregard spiritual authority. To desire to stir up conflict and bring out accusations against others is a sinful attitude (Proverbs 16:28). Our mouths can cause us to greatly sin and one who talks to much should be avoided (Proverbs 20:19). We are told to keep our tongues from speaking evil things (Psalm 34:13). James one of the early leaders in the Church said: “Do not speak evil against one another, brothers” (James 4:11). Out of our mouths can come blessings to believers but then death and accusation which is a poison or unclean thing.
