James 3:9, Cursing God’s Likeness
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness.
//Odd that this little verse has never penetrated my thoughts before. I just happened to stumble upon it.
James provides no context for his complaint, but he seems quite disturbed by the way people are able to treat one another. Here we are, cursing and killing our fellow human beings, though each is made in the image of God, and praising God while we do so.
Has anything changed since the first century?
