Biblical Communication

I’m sharing this in a sermon I’m giving tomorrow and thought I’d post it up here as well.  Here’s the 5 C’s of Christian Communication as given by Dr. Gregory Mazak at BJU in the class Counseling Techniques:

Be Correct

  1. Speak Out
  2. Speak the Truth
  3. Speak the Truth Lovingly

Be Current

  1. It is not always sinful to be angry
  2. It is sinful not to solve problems daily
  3. Failing to keep current gives the Devil an opportunity

Be Constructive

  1. Don’t use “unwholesome” words
  2. Speak only edifying words

Be Controlled

  1. Exercise Self Control.  Don’t allow the situation to control you
  2. Put off unbiblical reactions: bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, slander, malice

Be Compassionate

  1. Make the decision to act in a Christlike fashion
  2. Don’t allow yourself to react to the unbiblical actions of others.
  3. Put on biblical actions and attitudes: kind, tender-hearted, forgiving
