Thesis: The contradiction of creation by the tongue is to be completely rejected. Introduction: Last week we looked into James' seeming contradiction in his statements in 1:26 and 3:8. We saw that the resolution is to be found, not in man's ability, but in the character of true religion. Man's problem is not actually in his tongue; his problem is in his heart, out of which the tongue makes its utterances. Tonight we are going to take one last look at this paragraph on the problem of man's speech. In this look we will once again see that the problem is the heart and our responsibility is to seek God's alteration of it.
