So, if the tongue blesses the Lord and then curses men, what does that say about the Christian and our spiritual state? We keep going through James 3. And we may have talked about other stuff too.
We walk into Italy to take a look at the group of Reformers growing there, and to talk for a moment about why the reformation in Italy turned out differently. Of course we talk about what that means for us today.
The gang continues to talk about the dangers of talking. Taming the tongue and the power that resides in our words. James 3:1-10 are discussed.
Bern now stands in a place between Zurich and Strasbourg. And the introduction of a new man SImon Sultzer fans the flames. And the rural cantons start a fight with the city of Bern itself.
This month is a little late because this is a bigger book review. This week we are just looking at Rachel Green Miller’s book Beyond Authority and Submission. I know it is a sensitive topic, so I am a little late with it. But hopefully you find the review informative, helpful, or at least not a waste of time.
We go back to England for a quick check up on how England’s reformation is coming along. Not all Reformations look the same, nor do they all progress at the same rate. But God does work and the gospel does move forward.
The whole gang has returned and we are going to move on from James 2 into James 3. We deal with what it means when it talks about teachers and we begin to lead into the discussion of the tongue.
