The July edition of Tabletalk is out. This edition examines the right use of the tongue in our relationship to God and neighbor. Our God speaks, and when He created man in His image, He gave man the gift of speech in order that we might have communion with Him. Mankind has misused this gift, however. Rather than praising God, we take His name in vain. Rather than building our neighbor up, we flatter and gossip and slander. Christians are called to love the Lord our God with all of our heart and mind, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. One way that we practice such love is through our words. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Andrew Peterson, Derek Thomas, Jeffrey Jue, Iain Campbell, Jared Wilson, Timothy Paul Jones, John Sartelle, Dane Ortlund, Scott Sauls, R.C. Sproul Jr., Chan Kilgore, Richard Gamble, Mary Kassian and Michael Beates.
