But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. NKJV
The most seemingly insignificant sin – even a slip of the tongue – carries the full potential of all hell’s evil. No infraction against God’s holiness is therefore a trifling thing, and each person will ultimately give account of every such indiscretion. There is no truer indication of a bad tree than the bad fruit of speech. The poisonous snakes, were known by their poisonous mouths revealing evil hearts. Every person is judged by his words, because they reveal the state of their heart.
