Words can be swords

Reader comment on item: Palestinian Word Games

...

I'm the sort that thinks of the semantics of politics as a spiritual issue. The subtle shades of meanings in words have the power to control the human spirit through the mind, especially when the shades are being manipulated toward a particular objective.

Just as the Word of God is a powerful sword, which always accomplishes its purpose, so our words are swords, able to do good or evil as we wield them.

I'm certain we will receive the words we need if we will pray for them. And read Daniel Pipes for great specific insights.
