Christians can be so self righteous it’s crazy, the way I’ve been realising things is nuts. God’s like ‘SORRY luv there’s a cutla bits I’m gonna need you to clock before you go back out in the world’. This time it’s swearing.
99% of Christians will agree we shouldn’t swear and that our speech should be wholesome (Ephesians 4:29) . Most of the world will agree that F*** and C*** are ‘bad’ words. However, that all means nothing if the rest of your speech is damming. As in, you’re saved and don’t cuss but you talk down to people. Rude tone of voice, mean and relentlessly gossip to people’s face, behind their back and in your heart. Ermmmmmmm…?
So the saints who won’t watch a movie with swearing in but have no problem being ‘nice nasty’ are modern day pharisses. Hyping and rebuking one part of sin but dismissing the rest.
Swearing is the least of our problems if your heart and tongue is rotten with the permissable words.
