What we answer for the 1st ordeal of idle talk

The word is a very powerful tool. They can bring a person back to life or, on the contrary, hurt and even kill. Every word will have to be answered in another world - the Orthodox Church believes. Therefore, the first ordeal is idle talk. How to deal with the sins of the word, saysOleg Stenyaev.

 

 

 

The first ordeal is the sin of the word: idle talk, verbosity, ridicule, unreasonable laughter, singing obscene songs, all sorts of jokes.


Speaking of tribulations, we will empathize not only with Theodore, but also with ourselves, because we also have this ascent, but whether it is an ascent to God or a descent into hell - depends on a lot.

Control yourself

So, the first ordeal is the sins that a person commits with his word.
In the Psalms (33:14) it is said: "Keep your tongue from evil, and your mouth from deceitful words." Indeed, you need to control your speech, keep your tongue.
When people come to me for advice during confession and say that they have a problem - they quarreled with someone, they cannot control themselves, they do not know what to do, I give them one piece of advice.When anger comes up, start talking slowly. Because in the letter of the Apostle Jacob it is said: He who is able to curb his tongue will be able to curb his own body.
So, when anger approaches us, we start talking slowly. It is very important. This will help the person to control what he is saying.

The parable of the monk and the sins of the word

In the Gospel of Matthew (12: 36-37), the Son of God instructs us: “I tell you that for every idle word that people say, they will give an answer on the day of judgment: for with your words you will be justified, and you will be condemned by your words” .
Here it is already spoken not about evil words, as in the 33rd Psalm, but about idle words.
There is such a legend. The monk left his monastery with the blessing of the hegumen and went to the city. The cart on which the Jew was sitting was driving close by, and the monk took hold of the edge of this cart to make it easier to go. And all the way the Jew scolded the abbot of the monastery. The monk tried not to listen, the main thing for him was to walk to the city. And when they had already arrived at the city, the Jew asked: “Well, after all, you must agree: am I right?”
And the monk said (this may have been an excuse in his understanding):
- May be.
He said no more. He did all the work in the city, then returned to the monastery, and an old man came out to meet him, who told him:
“And now you are no longer a monk or even a Christian.”
And he said only "can be."

Ordeal of idle talk and answer for verbal decay

In the Epistle to the Ephesians, the holy Apostle Paul writes: “Let no rotten word proceed from your mouth, but only good for edification in faith, so that it may bring grace to those who hear.” See, as the apostle Paul writes: let no rotten word come out of our mouth. That is, there should be no evil words, idle words, rotten words.

Heavy sins word or how not to kill in one phrase

Once I spoke with a woman who was in dire straits. It was some kind of collapse. At first her husband approached me. He said: “I don’t know what happened (and they were newlyweds), my wife stopped talking to me. She has closed in herself, and I don't know why. ”
I tried to talk her, it was not easy for me, I literally pulled out confessions from her, what happened, who was to blame. And she said that about four days before this conversation, she cleaned the room, the husband came home from work, sat on the sofa (they lived together for more than a month after they got married), and suddenly it is not clear why the husband says, “What are you I have a slob! ”
He didn’t say anything bad that day, read the newspaper, relaxed, tried to talk with his wife on other topics,and these words were spinning in her head: "What a slut you are!". She brings food to the table, but these words - what a slut you are - they are in my head. She becomes a prayer, and these words in my head: "What a slut you have with me!".
And for a few days she was in a sort of collapse, and her husband did not even know what had happened. With difficulty I managed to reconcile these people.

“Speak as the words of God”

The Apostle Paul teaches us that no rotten word should come from our mouths, but only good to be edified in the faith. And what isgood word for edification in faith?


The Apostle Peter in his first epistle explains:. The good word that brings edification in faith is the word of the Holy Gospel.

 

word of god


One woman comes to me and says: “I have lost faith.” I explain to her: if a person has lost weight, I can tell her. Or if a person gained extra weight, then someone thin, slim can tell how to remove it.


And if a person has lost faith, what should he say? What source of faith? The Scripture says: "Faith is by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."


That is, true instruction is instruction that is certified by the words of the Holy Scriptures. Therefore, the First Apostle Peter says:.


Take it to yourself, tell your friends!
