Just thinking about controlling the tongue today. What's the deal with sarcasm and course joking having such a prevalent place in the Christian community nowadays? You guys, I think, know that I'm far from a legalist but sheesh -- I'm just uncomfortable with a lot that I hear coming out of the mouths of people who should know better.

There are tons of passage dealing with this issue... Here are just a few that come to mind:

James 1:19-20
Be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.

James 1:26
If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.

Ephesians 4:29
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Proverbs 4:24
Put away perversity from your mouth. Keep corrupt talk far from your lips.

The Cellular Church
Malcolm Gladwell, New Yorker contributor and author of Blink & The Tipping Point, wrote an interesting article on the cellular church and Rick Warren.

Now I've heard Rick's name a lot in relation to his whole Purpose Driven product line but -- I've never had enough interest to take a peek. This article, outlining his roots and giving a snapshot of his journey, has piqued my interest a bit and I may have to pick up a copy. Anyway... Take a peek when you have a few minutes.
