The truth is the tongue represents our desires and our inner-makeup to life so if we cannot control our desires and the words which we live by, then we have not attained true liberation. If there is evil in the world today, even after salvation, it is by the work of the tongue. James calls it an "unruly evil".
In slavery to the world, in slavery to our desires, in slavery to ourselves (all the more, enslaved), in slavery of thoughts, in slavery by law (just and unjust), in slavery of hope (even the hope to be rid of slavery). By human hands, all attempts at freedom creates more channels for slavery to be born.
In a sea of crowd-opinion and options of saving, a messiah is one voice louder than others showing the way because they are aware of the way out. The true test of a messiah is found in their ability to be right or be wrongly perceived.
This command says don’t take likely the purpose of your redemption. Don’t take for granted the reason of your initiation into eternal life by the sacrifice of HIS love.
We know that GOD is in the fire, the cloud and the rain. HE is in our hearts, the thoughts and our veins. HE is in us when we are in HIM.
