This post is about the importance of words. There are many people who think that they can say anything and that it doesn't matter how much they deceive, lie, trick, scam others. But it matters. I looked up the truth from the Holy Bible and these are only some of the scriptures about words. And yes, of course, this pertains to the prolife cause and to the battle by Christians against the attempts by evil groups to turn the U S away from GOD. In the prolife battle, the main instrument the wicked killers of the preborn use, is lies, lies and more lies to fool foolish women who don't know the scriptures.
If you read each one of these, you will be transformed about your duty to control your words to not speak evil.
