One noble show where you wipe your home work in politics. Steve was an ordinary man who believes in an extraordinary God it on his shoulders and walked through no sacred cows call Steve now 634 through 866-34-TRUTH or checking out online, Steve Noble now here's your host Steve Noble. I'm beginning to think of something to guide the BJ we got lots was in the past 10 months. Now that get a little close to home with me in my own challenges as a follower of Jesus Christ and so were to get in this today as we continue our conversation with Dr. Sam Horn about the book of James today that the blog post which are posted in a second. The sermon on the mouth, which sounds a little personal to me. Let me throw this at you. Okay, so there is a couple different ways to come at this in order to be in James chapter 3, which interestingly enough, I was just going through the first few passages of James chapter 3 with my son and three of his buddies last night there all 2122 years of age and this is a topic that has dogged me for a long time and it's that's why I guess God decided to put me in a realm where I speak effusively all the time and I will rape rank up again at the end of August when I pick up a classes into online about hundred and 30 students right now so I talked a lot.

So here's coupled in ways a comment about how fast we talk. Most was talk about hundred 2230 words a minute. Professionals like me speak about hundred 50, 260 words per minute people to do. Auctioneers not me 250 to 450 words per minute. Okay, so that's a lot were looking at this on average for us now ladies see little bit more usually, but on average 16,000 words per day. Now let's turn that into a book. Your average book has about 250 words per page serving today. Ladies and gentlemen, you write with your words, a 250 page 64 page book okay 64 page book every day emanates out of your mouth. That's a 448 page book every week significant novel. Okay, that is, in the course of the year 23,296 pages, which is 52 448 page novels that proceed out of your mouth every single year and as you get into James chapter 3, which double do today with Dr. Sam Horn were to get into something that when you first read it. If you think this is for teachers is for me but James chapter 3 is for all of us. I will expand on this as we go through it because I've taught on this many many times. I tend to talk and teach on things that I tend to be weak at myself and like I mentioned did this just last night with these young guys in and it got pretty quiet as we talked about the things that we choose to say how we say them where that comes from as well as the things we perhaps should of said and chose not so today. The sermon on the mouth.

The true measure of a ministry whether be a big ministry, a small ministry or your personal ministry. Dr. Sam Horn well thanks for just come in right after the middle of my life and appreciate it. How are you right now. It's funny that talk where you talk about this because I feel the same way preaching through the book of James, and every week I feel like I get in a boxing ring.

James and he just beats and beans Japanese on my spirit because it's so relevant and I thought about the sermon on the Mount that Jesus himself preached the James comes along to draw from that bridges the sermon about it so that's kind of where I got the title from, but I have not heard the statistics that you just gave about the book. I never thought that brutalist 64 page book every day of 400 and something page novel a week and in the scary thing is, James goes is everyone of those words has power for good or for evil to give an account. Every one of those words and our words reveal things about. That's right, you get an almanac is the words that come from out of the overflow of the heart and last night and I usually do this. I usually introduce the not so well-known theologian George Michael in the conversation and and no and these young guys. I like heavy heavy SLS on careless whispers and the like what and then when they hear the saxophone part they all go. I know that's not like the careless whispers of a good friend the careless whisper so Jesus said that we will be held accountable for every careless word we've ever uttered, which means that he's at so these recording everything and you look at that and that's where these guys and and one is guys on the worries that salvation lies like so when we just talk about the subject alone and you think your quote unquote good enough to get into heaven, that you're a pretty good person. You can't even account for all the damage you've done and all the sin that you've committed just by talking. Is Alyssa really, really powerful subject, but interestingly at the beginning of James. A lot of people might take themselves out of this. Sam talking to Dr. Sam Horn from Bob doing seminary not many. You should become teachers. They offer you know that we who teach will be judged greater strictness and at first I think people go all I don't teach them to Bible studies on mouth okay right right Sam, I don't a problem with that is exactly how people think it working he's going with this is that everybody's there are some teachers that set apart for the public preaching teaching right after work. Your life is a less you are going to stand before your family is friends, your neighbors and you teach.

I just don't get it.

James is look we all stumble in many ways.

We all stumble armies talk about the fact that nobody, including teachers, are sent. We all make mistakes. We all stumble. Sometimes we send you unintentionally stumble and was sent.

Sometimes we set intentionally.

James point is we all stumble in our lives, but the way that you know your life is credible, is there is one part of you that if you learn to control. If you've learned to bring this under submission.

It speaks to the rest of your life and that's what he means when he says if anyone does not stumble in what he says another word when he doesn't say what his mouth you discovered something you have found a mature Christian.

So a mature Christian is Mark by mouth, tongue that speaks and what comes out of it is shaped by the wisdom of God rather than by what's going on the world around you can generally tell that I actually would you guys last night were coming up on her first break I talking to Dr. Sam Horn from BJ's seminary. I said to them, you guys ever notice the older, wiser Christians tend to be a little less boisterous. They don't they listen a lot they don't tend to talk as quickly and Mike so we could go sit there and go well. James also said something about being slow to speak. I wonder why Jurado is going to be slow to speak, swift to hear and when you're that way you're listening to the word of God, right, you don't tend to grow angry at the world around you in the same way that pagan world around pricing you get grieved by what you hear and see that you don't get wickedly, that's right. Failure to control the tongue is a devastating marker of the sin that left if unaddressed will defile lives destroy relationships and diminish any teaching and gospel witness that you are me or Dr. Sam Horn has this is Steve Noble theology Thursday with our friends at BJ's seminary. The sermon on the mouth. Getting a lot more comfortable uncomfortable back and Steve Noble to Steve Noble, show theology Thursday with our friends at BJ's seminary so it's about halfway through the waking day for most of us okay 4:19 PM Eastern time. If you're on the live show on radio or podcast or listening online or Facebook or YouTube. Wherever you may be SLS. They were halfway through the show, so all this all all already today.

You've written a 32 page book with your mouth the words you said just just right now to stop 32 page and by the time you go to bed talking on a 32 pages on their your wife, your husband, your children, a coworker and neighbor, the person at the store.

Whatever. So the question becomes what kind of book do you write every day and then you guess who's gonna read every single book every single 64 page book that you been writing ever since.

Let's say you were 12 and the seal of the 80's and I've got 68 years of writing these 64 pages every single book and every single one of those books get hand-delivered to the God of the universe and the God of the universe can read them instantaneously can read he reads every single word you've ever uttered, and every time you go south and intents and sharpness in crudeness. Whatever the case, maybe that's just tingling thing and there's a little bell in heaven that rings every time God read something on those pages that contradicts his character.

That's another sin on your ledger dinghy meaning meaning the naming for 68 years over and over and over and over again. That's the power of the tongue, which is why were in James chapter 3 today with our good friend Dr. Sam Horn just I guess decided for the fun of summer would ruin all of our life. So is a great message for all of us, me, especially a chief of all sinners, but great Sam thanks much for being what we say at the beginning of our time together. Way back when we were streaky all yes working to be like you don't get more street talk God's right you just talked about in the last segment that the tongue is the indicator of our spiritual maturity. But in this segment less luster to the power of the time you caught Jay says. He says our tongue has the power to direct us and you controller action and their two Thracians that that James uses uses illustration of a horse and uses the alteration of a ship, a large ship and these these animals have. You know the horses great power and great usefulness, but you don't control it with in its mouth, then all that is is completely useless, so the person controlling the mouth of that horse bit is controlling the horse to the average adult horse on the numbers fax got right so the average adult horse about a thousand pounds in the pits 5 inches wide okay now go to supertanker and actually showed my son and his friends as last night a supertanker out there in the ocean average. One can be about 790 feet long. The runner is 20 feet long so the rudder supertanker that directs its path is 20 feet long with a supertanker itself 790 feet long and they carry roughly 500 800,000 barrels of oil they could tackle one of those bad boys. So that's the power of the yeah so that's the point James is saying here has the power to direct it has the power to control the issue is controlling my so whoever was controlling the horse or the rudder ship control the horse patrol the ship so whoever controls my mouth controls me. So there's only two places I can go either. My mouth is being controlled by God and wisdom from above or my mouth mouth my my tongue is shaped in control of the God of this world and wisdom which comes from below is a frightening thought, and I think we were talking to the break I uses illustration to stop and think about the fact that the God of the universe used words and his words are actually the most powerful force in the universe when he spoke words, things came and you are in the entire universe was created by works and that he created us in his image and he gave our words power not to that level you talking like word of faith, name it and clear and manifest things bothering to talk about our ability to speak our words have the power to bill for the power to destroy the power to heal. They can they can shape a person's entire eternal destiny I can use my mouth in such a way with my kids and my kids will turn away from God, help me turn away from the gospel rank and use my mouth with my neighbor that my neighbors so impacted that it comes to Christ. Yeah, my words if there controlled by God great power to bring light if there controlled the God of this world and my own flesh.

They have great destructive power.

Yeah, one of the greatest illustrations of this happen years ago in the days of our grandparents, mind and years. When Amanda Germany got up and started talking his name was laid off by the time he got done talking the result of his words were 6 million Jews incinerated another. I can't comprehend our entire world was reshaped by vinyl that came out of his mouth came out of his mouth out of his mouth came out of his heart. That's right, my US history class. I show them some clips of some of those massive displays of power in literally hundred thousand 200,000 people in the and the Nazis were so good at setting the whole thing up and to watch him up there command that crowd starting that's not what you actually Google's speeches on the YouTube and I would advise that is, it is dark-colored so glacier but then on the other side of the ocean was a man named Winston Churchill and he stood up and healed his mouth and he started saying words to counter those words and his words so mobilize an entire that you and I are free to that's right because, as he opened his mouth to counter those words yet so that the impact of the tongue, which is a small vessel when it comes to the whole body right so we got the pen guiding the horse to get the rudder turning huge ship, but James also talks about the power that destructive power is a fire in the tongue like a fire set on fire from hell itself in and then you mentioned in the blog of the great Chicago fire of 1871, which is not a great way to kind of quantifier. Get your mind on just how damaging this is that fires an amazing story of yellow story you know Mme. O'Leary's cow lantern and by the time it's all done, you know, 3.5 miles Chicago was burned out 17,000 buildings destroyed 250 lives lost what I know, until actually lived up with.

There's a town called pest. The very same day, August 8, 200 miles north of Chicago forest fire start in the city of pest and that Firebird bird literally 2000 of he, driven by hundred 10 miles will help me with wind wind. We've been given 100 miles an hour if you destroyed 12 towns 1800 mi. and 2000 lives were long and James says that you want a picture of the kind of destruction that can happen in a marriage, or the kind of ravaging that can happen in the little child's heart or the damage. You can do your career. What can happen in your church or in your congregation. When you let your tongue loose.

James is your child has the ability is not just like a horse is not like a writer is also like sparks like fire and that fire is not a healthy fire that warms you.

It's actually very fire that comes from a place called hell is set on fire from hell, and it destroys Wednesday's ravages and I don't think there's a one of us listening to the show or simply here talking to each other. That hasn't felt the ravages of time and will and probably their people listening to somebody says something when they were 400 years ago, a member that's right you 65 years old right and you're still struggling with the damage that the word that proceeded out of mom and dad's mouth.

Yeah, that's me Bobby or Bruce Lee this is Steve Noble to Steve Noble show theology Thursday with her friends at PG seminary talking to Dr. Sam Horn today as we continue our journey which were doing once a month with Santa.

The book of James is been awesome. The Proverbs of the New Testament and a Bruce Lee. I tell you what if you want to have somebody cut show up at your work or your house or a social event.

Whatever you need.

There's somebody there that just bugs the torrent of you and you just want to see them ripped to shreds. I'm your guy. Okay I can I have that skill set. I am a verbal Bruce Lee. I can be brutal and you would at times when my spirit is in control, you would wonder I was a Christian at all and that's in the God of course in his infinite wisdom in some amount of humor then throws me on the radio five days a week for a long time and then teaching and everything else I've done and so this is a very sensitive subject for me personally, but just because I'm the guy that's on the radio and podcasting and all I can stuff this applies to all of us.

We all speak about 16,000 words a day were all creating a 64 page book every day.

I don't know how seriously we deal with the subject. I know that there's times when I'm very committed to it in times and I don't pay attention to it at all, which is what I'm doing damage and harming other people. That's the fire that James is talking about that setting things aflame in the end this this burning hell that we can create an earth with friendships, and marriages are children. Let me just ask you this question.

Do you do you still carry the wounds of things that mom or dad said to you when you were young.

I mean, 10 2030 4050 6070 years ago we just had a memorial service for my mother out in the mountains of North Carolina. She lifted 90. My dad lived in 91 were still processing things that went on between us and siblings and with parents that happened 40 years ago that's that's the power the top, which is why it's such an important topic and were so grateful Sam that you're here guiding us today and and lending your wisdom this conversation we been talking about what what's going on here in the power the tongue of the damage it can kinda do, but we mentioned a couple times what I want to dive in a little bit more in the working to finish by talking about how do we actually tame our tongues, which neither Sam nor myself or you can do that the Holy Spirit project there but the true heart of the matter, which is really difficult. This comes out of the Gospels.

When we talk about the overflow or the abundance of the heart comes vomiting out of our mouths. So when were harsh and terrible. I think most of us are aware of it when we said the wrong thing. Sam let let's talk a little about what is that come from because I think we have to take a real hard look in the mirror, which James also helps us to know James says a couple of things that you want to think. He says you are in a trial and you wisdom.

You can go to God and there is wisdom that comes down from God.

Actually, wisdom is his words back to work. You got is given you words hold in your hands all the Bible and go to that wisdom and ask God to give you understanding, insight, and enlightenment about whatever you going through. From that book, but there's a condition and the condition is you have to come with a single heart with a whole heart that is fully trust cannot be double minded.

In chapter 4.

He's gonna look at people who are living in two different worlds. You know something they show up and Nana got their Jesus act on.

They got their God act on together.

Bible act church action on Monday to Saturday around the world and you can hardly tell a different James says to them when when it all gets exposed. You have got it wrong. You have to cleanse your hands, you sinners bases this you have to purify your heart, you double minded and what he means by purify their if you unify your heart.

You gotta bring it back to wholehearted you got you got to go back on diluted unmixed on adulterated was here's the question how do I know if I have double heart or a double minded heart and James says when your mouth can be like that fountain that you need about the end and at one point comes this wonderful freshwater is all about the Lord. Yes, yes, oh God's faithfulness of God's mercy. Thank you sir may I have another yeah let me tell you, but gospel and then he turned around and now that saying now is all this trash, this criticalness this judgment was this this profile, you know I II is not just her mouth right when you said about communication. So it's what we write what we write postage tweed so I heard a very sad story recently that all share without mention names, but there was a Christian young lady brother Chris no and she fell in love with it unsaved.

I and and rustled through all of that and she looked in her mother wrote her a letter in the letter she said I wish you had never know what you did is so bad I wish you would never been before. Now that happened. Probably 30 years ago. Do you think that girl that young girls now ever forgot no course. Do you think it's forever shaped your relationship with you and to our knowledge, to my knowledge, that woman is not a believer today. Now I'm just saying here is now on Sunday would say all the right things about God, but in the moment when it was most needful came out this hellish statement. I wish you had never been born, and all of a sudden somebody's eternal destiny tri-state somebody that probably the time would've claimed to be pro-life. Yeah yeah I had a little more fuel the fire with a challenge here. Sam is when when you look at that in you go, that's that's for you really have to. James also talks about this to me like the guy looks in the mirror a couple minutes away. Later you forget what you look like, and I was like a David because I just that he's the guy that I go to in the in the Scriptures in his life that while he was an egregious failure in so many different ways.

He was still a man after God's own heart and when it in this Psalm of repentance. My sin is ever before me. I'm not. I'm not a broken down to filed on the sidelines in the garbage chute Christian just barely escaping the flames. I don't see myself that way but I am pretty sober minded about my sin and and I struggle with it and I agonize at times I should agonize more. At other times and that's where this winnings of bingo because I think I will. In this context that were in today. Sam coming through covert and everything from politics. I think now are like hey you know we tried nice nice didn't work.

Okay fine you want to talk about that, politically, that's fine. But as a Christian I think we can struggle with with baptizing harshness or condescension or judgment was a flat out hatred which God would call murder right saying that well we have to speak the truth about these things but are also told of speak the truth in love, and I think often times when we deliver a truth. Our goal is not to build up were not trying to speak words of life were actually trying to harm people put in their place. I think we have to be afraid, hypersensitive, but I think we need to be the appointment so you remember the ship and the horse. Somebody is controlling worship is not a little piece of metal is not a writer is a person controlling those things that directs the ship controls the horse so whoever is controlling my heart told my mouth.

James says there are two controlling things wisdom from above and then in chapter 3 verse 50 wisdom from below that was below its natural and spiritual earthly strongly and it is demonic right that's its origin is demonic in origin is no it's no surprise to me that changeling talks about John.

He says it is set on fire from heaven hello so for right so there's the there's the clue you asked where is all this come from it comes from whatever wisdom I'm operating something of wisdom is the operating system you are so good right and it's like the transmission picture belief in the behavior.

So what comes out of my mouth telling me whether double minded and I'm letting myself be controlled by the thinking of the world, the frustrations of the world. I mean when I am different than my unsaved neighbors, and I'm just as mad and just as vile when God really gets older person there mouth changes is an incredible story about a revival at the turn-of-the-century came to Wales and the minors got say and their donkeys that were pulling the or carts out of the mine. When respondent because they couldn't recognize the commands were company by curse words. It's what you had to retrain the study that's amazing about the power of the Holy Spirit to transform a person's mouth. I just think you know when we get to your point, you know, we think about the rhetoric because we live in a country that is being destroyed this excellent country is being destroyed and we can sit back, nothing, nothing on it all, but how is getting quite how we use our mouth. Exactly sorted out, finish up in the force I met with Dr. Sam Horn today from PG seminary. The sermon on the mouth.

How we actually tame the tongue. Without power the Holy Spirit put back its email to Steve Noble show Thursday Fidelity Thursday.

Of course with our friends at BJ's seminary. As a reminder, tomorrow will be out tomorrow but will be a pretty much be here the rest of the summer than in the fall. Things get back to normal.

Summers always a bit of a curveball little things going on here and there, but I did want to remind everybody my good friend Michelle I Woodhouse will be in tomorrow guest hosting Michelle was running in the primary early this year in the Republican primary in western America just brilliant smart. That tough lady loves the Lord.

She's got some great guys that she's going to come on have on tomorrow.

Peggy grand was Pres. Reagan's executive assistant wrote an incredible book, the president will see you now so she's going to talk about some of her stories with them for Pres. Ronald Reagan, that'll be awesome.

And then David Drucker is an incredible political correspondent with the Washington Examiner great author. He wrote a book called in trump shadow so that's good to be on in the Mercedes slap is with the pack and Fox News contributor.

She used to be the director communications actually had her on once for the Trump campaign and she's going to talk about that as well so those are three great gas Michelle going to do a great job and so excited for that tomorrow, but today this really really important conversation with power the tongue.

The sermon on the mouth of the sermon on the amount we could go to that somewhere else for the sermon on the mouth in James chapter 3 with Dr. Sam horn again.

Sam always a blessing. Thank you so much for your leadership and wisdom will thank you well know, we were short today statement we can talk this little bit about what to do about yet because there's not one of us, not you. The who have not used her tongue for good boy.

God wants us right in the turnaround great damage with so how do we do that and I think there's five things number one. I think James says you gotta recognize something you will never be able to obtain your tongue on your own pieces. No human being can tame the concentrate is not to say every animal under the sun has been tame were obtained. There is not like your dog tricks. This is the idea that it's been subdued is what God told Adam go out and do you the all the animals you do not run the plant right. Some people wish they did not run the plant. Should you.

But there's one thing that man has not been able to you next.

And so we captured you are tongue on her own. So how do I how I take my time. I can't do it in my own strength second receive God's word with neatness, with humility and not resistance. In other words, if you want if you want to obtain your time so you your heart is not like put a guard on my mouth right to Attend before I say it and I'm I'm good to keep my mouth closed two times more than I opened it all capture right that's not going to Kmart. What has to happen is we have to submit our heart and the second think James is let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath receive with meekness the word that's been implanted in you, which is able to deliver yourself. So she got to work. Number three is our resolve to be true to the truth even when you don't like the truth hears my I'm very select, you know I'm all about true brother very select the truth radio network. A lot of the were very very truth oriented people, but it's easy to be selective about what to speak truth to power to confront evil is that there is one truth you have to face next. The condition of your own. Yes, there you show why mom and said that as a Christian activist and and God had to leave me down this road through the truth of his word and I'd still say like this, it's really easy to point the white-hot spotlight, a judgment of the culture but do you have the guts to pointed at yourself. Yeah, and oftentimes I don't write the mirror myself the past all the I'm calling everybody else out somebody called me on my I'm good you well, listen, listen, I'll go to that great theologian Saul Wolinsky on this one and rules for radicals which I pulled out last night with my son and his friends talk about the power of the tongue and being a Christian and I said what's one of the things that the unbelievers like to say about us most. What's the number one charts a process we get is a bunch of hypocrites right so Saul Wolinsky rules for radicals. Rule number 12. Rule number four is use your enemy's own standards against them because they'll never live up to Exeter go and that's the struggle the Christian life. When you are talking about this be true to yourself okay final speak truth to power speak truth to evil a speak truth. The corruption will speak truth to Planned Parenthood, and abortion all speak truth to Joe Biden, then the Vladimir potent will I speak the truth to myself and do I have using God's word because once you put God's word up against your life and your thoughts and your words that that's where the rubber hits the road and I'm I'm I said this before you purposes. I have a PhD in everybody else's sent a GED in my own yeah and that's the problem here so you submit start submitting your life more and more to the truth speak the truth to yourself and by the power the Holy Spirit that will be continued so as I speak truth about truth right from the culture we were not culture. I have a responsibility speak truth in the culture right, right. But how I speak about the people truth, I'm challenge right whether it weathers a fellow brother or pagan. I am so frustrated with what's coming out of her mouth. I cannot speak evil about that person right I can identify their evil sure. I need to confront their their their falsehood or their error. I need to remember their image bearers and I have to speak about it to an image here remembering that God created and when I disparage the image here. I'm actually disparaging creator. This is where change jobs. So even as I speak truth to power.

And even as I confront the error and sometimes just outright wickedness comes out just somebody's map got the wrong thinking that's destroying things I've gotta remember I don't yet to disparage that person. I don't get to use the tactics of the enemy to undo the enemy himself so process answer, not a cool fool according to his folly. When you respond to a full don't use his same method don't go out of the pool pool is going. Everybody else answer is falling. Don't let his folly says it twice yes answer.

Not cool the way he foolishly talks answer a fool according respond right go after that fall, and the first thing is run to God's mercy because you're going to need a lot of it. When you use your mouthful so is this and this is where I end up just like David did when he is confronted by Nathan in in having to deal with his own sin that he comes back and that's like Kate Lord, search my heart, revealing the unclean and wicked thing and that's where we have to remember God's mercy is always there is mercies are new every morning.

And so when we when we find ourselves in. I find myself in this often where I know I should've said it. I said the wrong way.

My motivation was wrong. Whatever the case may be where I where I send in this way then I got up I got a guy got a run back to God's mercy over and over in his first someone and this is what James says God's mercy always triumphs over judgment.

A man right so you made the final thought all of this together. I can't pay my knowledge of God has to payment for so so with Dave and I need to say this. Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart, which drive those words, the source of the right words of my mouth. My heart be acceptable in your sight to your point about the books God is hearing and seeing everything I speak lack what I say coming on my heart be acceptable, Lord. And here's the interesting thing my strength and my Redeemer got so I don't have the ability if you're not my fragment and I don't have any hope. If you're not my Redeemer. If you cannot repeat my mouth and there's no possible way for me to review and so I got to God and doctors. Right now I need you to go back to my wisdom and I need you to let your heart shaped and formed into a single mind, not double line so that wisdom from above is driving mass in terms of just getting help with the Sam of course we need to pray and ask the Lord to help us with this, but can we ask another believer to help us with this I mean at all. I have this relationship with my wife now where we call each other out.

Based on the things that we said and that's very helpful.

She's going to have to call me way more than I call her out, but that's what they asked somebody that hate you know what, would you please pay attention to not only what I say but how I say it. I don't know that many of us have a kind of verbal accountability partner like that.
