1. When godliness declines, public discourse is debased. 2. When wickedness increases, language becomes blasphemous. 3. God remains the believer's comfort. Application: 1. Salvation changes a sinner's speech. 2. Pray like the Psalmist: "help, Lord, for the godly ceaseth."
How fitting and relevant The main point made in this message is:
When godliness declines, public discourse is debased. So true: how often even the speech of God's children is brash, lacking etiquette, courtesy and godly mannerism. How contrasting with God's words: "The words of the Lord are pure words". Significantly it is observed that the use of language is an accurate indicator of the heart's godliness. "The mouth of the righteousness speaks wisdom because the law of the Lord is in his heart" Thank you

Do you wonder what we should do today? Help Lord! Why isn't the church praying for our Lord's help as David did in this Psalm? We see the exact same symptoms in our day, the decline of language, the decline of our culture and the failure of our church to find a solution. Help Lord! Let our prayer be to God for deliverance and assistance in this time of great declension! Thank you Pastor Kirkland for such a powerful and truth filled sermon.
