“Pious sins of the tongue” is my attempt, I trust, to capture the incongruity of talk about God that is unworthy of Him and of His truth, and therefore, that has spiritually deadly effect toward others, especially when they lack discernment, but even then the hearers do not wholly escape injury.

Redemption’s Three Parties

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he (Jer 31.11).

Jeremiah foretold days of restoration for Israel after she had been decimated by well-deserved discipline for her apostasy.
