Matthew 12:36 – Will we REALLY be judged for every careless word we utter? – Matthew Leonard
Featuring Matthew Leonard/
October 11, 2016
On the latest Deep in Scripture podcast, Matthew Leonard from the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology joins Marcus Grodi to discuss a verse that can be frightening to many of us. Jesus tells us in Matthew 12:36 that on the day of judgment, we will be held to account for every careless word that we utter. What implications does this verse have for the debate between predestination and free will? Can we ever be forgiven for the things that we’ve said, and regret? In a day and age where social media makes it so easy for the demons of our past to be brought back to haunt us, it’s important to know what the mercy of God means in light of this verse- and what it means for us to tame our tongues.
