Notes**
God defines the essence of the true religion. That why we should look attentively into his word to understand what he means. Excluding holiness from religion equals worthless religion. Our tongue serves as an indicator of whether our claim to true religion will stand. conquering your tongue is an essential part of what it means to be a Christian
