Bleep! Why Christians Shouldn’t Cuss | The Cripplegate

Our words put us in cahoots with others who use those words indiscriminately. A guy at my gym swears like a sailor, as do his companions. But when he heard a pastor drop a curse word, he considered that solecism to be a justification for a slew of other infractions: “You see, when a Christian hits his thumb he cusses just like I do. He’s obviously harboring stuff inside that he doesn’t show unless his guard is down.”In the end language is to be used for what glorifies God. A handy rule may be that if you aren’t prepared to use a particular word in your prayer to God then you shouldn’t be using it in your conversations with others.So, what shall Christians do about swearing? Frankly, we need to give a…hoot.

This is as good an explanation as I could give. It’s difficult to tell non-Christians exactly why Christians feel that foul language is bad. If we cant say it to God in prayer, we probably shouldn’t be saying it.
