Master the tongue and then u can master the body...it's that simple (conceptually).

Main point summary
A true Christian is not the one lead by his tongue but the one leading in neighborly love and purity .
If anyone thinks he is religious
If any one believes himself to be practicing his Christianity well
q and does not bridle his tongue
YET he does not keep his tongue in check
but deceives his heart,
And therefore tricks his heart
this person’s r religion is worthless.
THEN this persons practice is worthless
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this:
Alternatively ,this is the practice God commends
s to visit t orphans and widows in their affliction,
That is ,to visit orphans and widows in their need
and u to keep oneself v unstained from the world.
And to keep from the world's defilements
Of a truth indeed ,if we can control our tongues,then we would be perfect, able to master our bodies. (James 3:2) So it is no surprise that religion that is pure and undefiled before God involves controlling the tongue and simultaneously using our bodies to minister to others while keeping it disciplined.
