"Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice." Ephesians 4:29-31 In the message "Against False Prophets" Art Katz raises the question what makes our speaking evil, it is that it is not God's speaking. It is our speaking and what flows from us is evil. In order to speak good we would have to "stand in the counsel of God" and hear from Him and then we would truly have a 'good' word to share, in the meantime it will be something other, something less, something evil!
