Pyromania is a strange psychiatric disorder. It comes under Impulse control disorder alongside kleptomania. Pyromaniac set a fire for no reason. They are different from people who make Arson. Arson people do it with intention of harming others whereas pyromaniacs start a fire to just gratify their impulses. Studies found it’s due to the loss of inhibition in ventromedial prefrontal cortex and ventral striatum.
Word of God compares Tongue to a fire in James 3:6 “And the tongue is a fire. The tongue, a world of unrighteousness: so is the tongue among our members, that is defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. Such is the power of tongue how a small matchstick fire can destroy a whole forest, our tongue can destroy our life and others life when used inappropriately.
Friends let us think how many times we spoke ill of others? How many times we hurt others with our tongue? How many times we lied and destroyed others life with our tongue. How many times we gossip and spread the rumour about others? Are we a pyromaniac with our tongue? Though world legalised the gossip and we have gossip magazines today, Gossip is a sin.
Word of God says in Proverbs 18:21 “Death and Life are in the power of the tongue: And those who love it shall eat the fruit thereof”. Are we giving life to others and ourself with our tongue? Or are we bringing curse and death to us and others with our tongue? Let us examine ourselves today. God bless you.
