Don’t Cuss! Call Gus…
Swearing, cursing, taking God’s name
in vain and potty-mouth have no place in a Christian’s vocabulary. Anyone who
claims to be a follower of Jesus CANNOT have a habit of cursing.
Listen to our Lord, “But I say unto
you, That every idle word that man shall speak, they shall give account thereof
in the day of judgment,” Matthew 12:36. See also James 3:10-11.
It is amazing, disappointing and inconceivable
to me that someone who claims to be a Christian habitually uses profanity. No
one is “perfect” but all Christians can let their speech be with grace seasoned
with salt…Col. 4:6. One of the biggest “pollution” problems in south Texas is
the abundant use of profanities which contaminate our atmosphere and ears.
Continued use of profanity is a
blasphemy of Christ and discouraging to other Christians. Let us do better! Let
us use our tongues and mouths to praise and glorify God and tell the wonderful
Good News of the Gospel, Eph. 4:29!
Read carefully and consider Ephesians
4:29-32: “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. And grieve not the Holy Spirit of
God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all
bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away
from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted,
forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.”
