How is the Bible like a sword?

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.  Hebrews 4:12
            Paul in Ephesians 6:17 called the word of God a sword also, when discussing the armor of God.  A sword fights off the enemy and puts it to death. 
            Truth does the same thing, killing off lies and laying them to rest.  Truth cuts through the falsehoods and exposes what’s inside.
The Bible is truth and it’s that truth which gives the Bible profound effectiveness.  The more we speak it, the more it judges our hearts to expose the truth.
The Bible is a weapon defending truth and killing off the lies that kill us.
