False sayings and lies

There are sad stories on the internet. People go to jail and they didn't do the crime because other people lie.
This type of story will bring anger. Many people have a sense of justice.

I believe this. Every country need good laws and the innocent should be protected. God has the same idea.
God talk about this type of law in the Book of Exodus. People forget that God is the great judge.

We became angry when injustice happens and a innocent person get punished. But we need to look at this area. The human tongue can bring false accusations. We can condemn the innocent because we can't control our tongue. Our tongue can cause death in our lives and in the person life. Many people praise God and they curse mankind.

James 3:7-12


All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

We need a new justice in our tongues and hearts. There are many sins in our hearts. We are unclean before God. We need to ask the Lord for a new heart.

The Messiah can forgive our sins. We are guilty before the Great Judge but Jesus can redeem our hearts. Jesus take our sins and can make a person new.

Exodus 23:7

 Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty.
