The most repulsive of these sins of evil speaking is, undoubtedly the sordid and repulsive habit of unprintable swearing - to which so many are now subject. What a shame this is, what sordidness, what an insult to the purity and chastity which the Lord expects of us and has commended to us. Yet, many people think that all this is "nonsense," "of no consequence," forgetting about those fearsome words: "You will be judged by your words and will be condemned by your words," which we have already cited. The Apostle James asks, "Can salty water and sweet water both run from the same spring?" But we, nevertheless, profane our lips with this repulsive swearing and imagine that fragrant words of pure prayer to God will flow through these very same lips; and with these profaned and dirtied lips we accept the holiest of all holy things - the most pure Mysteries of Christ. No, "put away everything now; rage, evilness, evil-speaking, the obscenity of your lips" - whoever has ears to listen, hear this!


How come people resort to cursing when they get angry? I do it all the time, but the word says it's bad... Thank Jesus for dieing for our sins and giving us the ability to be forgiven... Props to my man Jesus......


It's as if when you're mad Satan is working through you, but when you're happy it's as if God is working through you... Puts new light on the phrase "you are your worst enemy". The struggle with ones self is the most important... The ability to deny evil... The evil that lies within everyone... The constant battle of good and evil is in our blood...

something to think about at least...

say something about this...

It is satan working through you.. When you sin you let him into the soul, he can't make you do anything but he can work on the faculties of the soul and put all sorts of things in your head..

Remember possesion is very real.. I have felt things in my soul before I knew God that were unimaginable now that I think about it.... I used to throw stuff at my mother when I was about 12-14..... I was way more ruthless.... selfish.... not sharing food..... got angry for no reason...

Now I am completely different...

Now, anger is an emotion and it is not always a sin. Just anger is not a sin, yet it shouldn't turn into sin and let is get the best of you...

It's the hatefull anger and speech which are like possesions and are sin....


peace.

they're just words. i'm sure there's far worse you can do than say a few four letter words.

like rape
or murder

and "foul" speech? seriously, the F word isn't that "foul" of a word compared to a racial or ethnic slur or much of the hatespeech that comes from people's mouths.

Saying it is okay (or not so bad) to do something because there are far worse things you can do its not really an argument that stands up to reason.

However, you do make an interesting point. Why is it that words with sexual connotations have been made 'bad'? My signature has an interesting point here



About racial slurs, I dunno....it's more the way a person says something than what they are saying that matters. Certain terms that are currently taboo when used to refer to black people were fairly commonplace (and uninsulting) originally. A recent example would be the use in the UK of the term you get when you take the first part of the word Pakistani (I really feel silly saying it like this, but hey, this is a public forum, and someone may get offended). A Pakistani friend of mine was actually insulted that that term was used as an insult.


Yeah...So much for the off-topic. Still, despite what I personally think, I wouldn't use these terms so freely "just because". In some cases it is better to be polite than it is to be right.

This always amuses me. What if we replace the sin of cursing, with the sin of lying. Let's see...

"Why do people resort to lying when they get angry? I do it all the time, but the word says it's bad... Thank Jesus for dying for our sins and giving us the ability to be forgiven... Props to my man Jesus......"

What if we replace it with adultery or murder?

A little bit strange, eh? I was taught that if you continue with your sin, knowing it's wrong and counting on Jesus' forgiveness, you might as well not even ask for forgiveness in the first place. It's like stabbing someone, saying you're sorry and immediately stabbing them again.

If you can't control what comes out of your mouth, who can? I swear, too, but I have complete control.



It's as if when you're mad Satan is working through you


Ah... the old "The devil made me do it" defense...

well, i'm not saying it's bad...

seriously, that which we call "profanity" is just language. racial slurs and hate speech are 'foul language'

four letter words are just words.

however, i was just making sure the OP doesn't beat her/his self up over something that's fairly minor. my point was that it's a simply problem that can be fixed.

i swear all the time. i know it's not acceptable in certain situations and i'm able to restrain it without even making a conscious effort. the whole root of "foul" language comes from the idea that there are certain sounds and phonetics that are offensive to god. doesn't sound very plausible considering there are other languages that undoubtedly use some of the same sounds in non-profane everyday language. and words that are taboo in other language have no bad connotation whatsoever in other languages unless they happen to be etymologically connected in someway.

point is, profanity is subjective. a set of words were deemed inappropriate by people in power a long time ago and they made it taboo to say them. i respect that others are hung up on profanity so i tend to only express myself in that way around my friends and immediate family. that doesn't mean i agree with the idea that i should have to. after all, there are other words that are not profane in the traditional sense that can be far more offensive.

Good post!

And very good point... I cuss around my friends too, but I'm talking more about when we get angry, when we really get mad and resort to cursing...

When I'm in a good mood I probably still cuss, but the intent is different, more of a jokingly way...

When I'm mad it's different... Like they're evil words...

I find that too sometimes is true...

But when i'm upset, if I cuss it relieves the tension, if I hold it all in it's as if my body is going to explode... Like my evil side is trying to break out... Next time someone makes you upset, just turn away and ignore the person and hold it all in... Tell me how that feels, then the next time you get upset, cuss a bit and see if you're relieved...

But I suppose you could curb that feeling and learn to deal with it or tone it down... Just like a habit...

That's a good way to put it, very simple and to the point! Maybe though if you drop something on your foot and say *() damn it God will damn your foot? Go for a run and bust your foot...

But ya, saying it to someone else is like putting a curse on someone... Not good anyway...

Hello,

I can relate to that, i have a terrible habit, but if we pray in faith the Lord will respond I used to do drugs, with prayer and faith this has gone, i used to drink with faith and trust it has gone, i used to take prescription drugs, by trusting God its gone.

Now these problems and others did not disappear over night but this is what perseverance in prayer is all about. Everything is a test and it is to the betterment of us that we endure these trials, we know it is wrong and our hearts are the true measurment, God will reward the true of heart when it is his will to do so. Do not give in or up brother, its not for us to determine when God acts.

It is for us to pray and ask for faith, and ask for more faith and keep on asking until we fully trust and believe that we are nothing and can achieve nothing without Christ our Lord.

When i became a Christian i prayed i would stop using the word Jesus and Christ and it stopped overnight, I still swear but it is less and certainly less vulger, i now find myself saying things such as oh for Petes sake or Cobblers.

It is hard when we get wound up. fortunately God sometimes has a great way of stopping you dead, I was having an argument last year with a neighbour (trivial) and i started to swear, he asked if it was necessary. since then i cannot stop thinking how this looked to God and how he must look to my neighbour if this is how Christians act. I feel sick everytime i think of it. Praise the Lord for that!

Its easy to look back and see what God HAS done, very difficult to see the ongoing tasks. He will weed it out of you sooner or later

All the best

David

You aint alone brother.

Everyone swears when they are miffed.

You swear because you freaking hell feel like it.
Well that and a mixture of Brain impulses and vocal chord movement.

The Devil aint working through you by making you swear,
I mean whats hes profession , Is he a trooper or something?

He might be a rap artist .

We all swear when we are peeved,
We are human.

Where does it say that it is bad to 'curse?' Assuming that you mean using four-letter words and colorful expletives? Swearing, in the bible, means to make a vow. To curse someone is basically the same as defamation of character. Which is not lawful because of being UNTRUE rather than x-rated.

A LIE is far more poisonous to the soul than the flavor of a word. If you tell the truth in a way that makes even a sailor blush....well, it is still the TRUTH.

THAT is what matters to GOD!
TRUTH.

Also, Elijah cussed like a sailor - of course it is all lost in translation! And he wasn't the only one (albeit probably the most ENTERTAINING).

The bible is not rated G in the original Hebrew! It's full of sex and violence and all sorts of 'bad' words. Of course no one knows that because it doesn't go well with 'Sunday best' and is not PROFITABLE for the seminary schools.


The ability to deny evil... The evil that lies within everyone... The constant battle of good and evil is in our blood...


The 'ability to deny evil' is nothing more than the ability to lie to yourself!
Not half as impressive as being totally honest with yourself!

GOD doesn't deny creating evil - why should we deny our creator?

If you fight yourself you will neither win or lose. A house divided against itself will not stand.


something to think about at least...


Think about THAT!

I swear when I am angry too. I also swear when I am happy, sad, excited, aroused, apathetic, etc...

I don't understand the power of words and I'm a writer. For people to place so much meaning in words is never a good thing. Then the words become more important than the speaker, doesn't make sense.

Here we go

Ephesians 4:29

Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

Thank you, David!

Corrupt means 'worthless' or 'rotten.'

What Paul is saying is that our speech should build other people up in the LORD rather than be full of hot air.

Many man-made churches these days are FULL of hot air!
And it is on TV and fills the bookstores!
The LEFT BEHIND series.
And Hal Lindsay could make a killing as a hot-air balloon on the weekends!

But if you hit your thumb with a hammer and say a few choice words - WHO CARES? GOD doesn't even care - and if it makes YOU feel better than GOD is HAPPY in your relief!

It is all about what we build...what we think and feel inside!

If a person never says a 'bad' word in their entire life but has a heart full of spite and malice toward others, GOD KNOWS THE TRUTH.

Many people APPEAR to be holy but in their hearts they are full of iniquity. They despise those who they consider sinners and let suffering continue because they are more concerned with APPEARING HOLY rather than FEEDING the POOR and COMFORTING the AFFLICTED.

GOD sees THROUGH us.
He sees us not as we see each other and GOD's thoughts and ways are HIGHER than our own!

He hears what is in our hearts rather than what comes out of our mouths!
