Contamination! Bacteria is not only physical matter but also spiritual matter.
The Bible tells us that it is not what we put in our mouths that defiles us but “WHAT COMES OUT OF OUR MOUTHS”.
There is a two-way curse:
#1 Blasphemy (condemning vulgarities) coming out of the mouth is disrespecting God, Life and all of God’s goodness. Yes, it is speaking deceit against God, upon ourselves, others and our world. CURSING GOD, CURSES LIFE (–meaning we, mankind, catch Hell. This explodes all kinds of problems for us in Life.)
If we want life to be blessed, we need to be thankful and do so with blessings coming out of our mouths instead of speaking out curses. These curses obviously cut off graces and bring problems into our lives.
#2 We need to bless the food that we eat. Today people have become reliant on how their food is processed (organic and specialized) rather than blessing the foods which they eat.
Obviously we are very spiritual beings who can suffer harsh physical repercussions through the errors of our own actions. What come out of the mouth, (by the TONGUE) obviously “has power”. Power to bless, curse and/or cleanse.
But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. Matthew 15:18
The power of the tongue:
Proverbs 18:21 – Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
1 Peter 3:10 – For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
