Etymology- The study of the origin of words.
mean things. We typically communicate our feelings through words. YAHUAH the Creator and Savior states for us in Scripture
to remove the names (words) of other "mighty ones" from our lips (see Shemoth sn-Ex 23:13).
goal as a true believer in YAHUAH should be to do all things that please Him. Much of this has to do with what is in our "minds"
and flows from our "lips." So as we "Come out of Babylon," we will continually learn to drop those "words"
and things that are rooted in "paganism" and strive towards a "pure tongue, heart, and mind."

to our Savior, YAHUAH.
