Before anything do me a favor and go read White Ricks post from James 1:25…it is the 4th comment down…He has two so dont forget to scroll down to his second one.
If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless. NIV
If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are just fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless. NLT
Anyone who sets himself up as “religious” by talking a good game is self-deceived. This kind of religion is hot air and only hot air. The Message
If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless. NKJV
