Matthew 5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea, Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

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.

Colossians 3:8 But now ye also put off all these, anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

Philemon 1:6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

What you should be concerned about is....

........is it "GODLY" (no, of course not, you are verbally attacking PEOPLE).

However, you have now become a bad 'biblicist' and are guilty of 'malbiblification' (maybe sarcasm can help teach "GODLINESS").

GOD owns heaven, THE BIBLE DOES NOT OWN HEAVEN. Many Christians will go to heaven even though they have violated the bible. Be concerned about BEING GODLY, not 'BEING BIBLICAL'.

Will Christianity ever learn to have the right priorities?

Anger is not a sin: "Be slow to anger, and do not let the sun go down upon your anger", but cursing is a sin. Again I say onto you: the adversary curses onto his own destruction, but the tongue of the christian is blessed: "for out of the mouth the heart speaks: a good person out of the good treasure of the heart brings forward good things: and an evil person out of the evil treasure brings forward evil things. But I say to you, That every idle word, which if a person will speak, they will yield account of it at Judgment day."

Even Christian's get angry. David was a man after God's own heart and he stated, Woe unto me for I am a man of unclean lips.
---tonne on 1/22/10


James 3:8-13
8But the tongue can no man tame, it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

9Therewith bless we God, even the Father, and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.

10Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

11Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?

12Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

13Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

What we give is what we get, and what we sow we will reap: the blessers are blessed, and the cursers are cursed: therefore bless, and curse not: for the adversary curses onto his own destruction, but the tongue of the christian is blessed.

YES! no filth sould come out of the lips of the children of God. God has been working on me a lot & it's getting better, but we shouldn't do it at all.

Rob, I'd read 1 John 4 v1-6 and "test" Benny Hinn. He is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Coy Wylie looks at this passage in relation to cults and sects and it's worth a read. Another place worth looking is to search for "False Teachers and Charlatans Exposed" - there's too many references and comments to quote here although if you require a few specifics let me know.

Ephesians 4:29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, that it may give grace to those who hear. If curse words are unwholesome it is unbiblical to use them towards anyone. I don't believe they could edify or give grace to those who hear them.
---Bob on 1/21/10


According to Benny Hinn, Cursing is Biblical. Benny Hinn has told people if they did not send him money he was going to place a curse on them.

Pastor Jim: It's been a while since I last visited this particular blog. Again, I request you reference Scripture that says Paul cussed & he ( & Peter) used unChristian hand gestures when they were angry. You say this can only be found in a modern reference Bible, not the KJV. What modern reference Bible would that be? Thanks.
---Leon on 12/27/09


"But, can you reference Scripture that says Paul cussed & he (and Peter) used unseemly hand gestures when they were angry? Thanks!"
Leon

Hi Leon,

It was the scene when Paul confronted Peter at Antioch. He Cuss and Hand gestures to his face. He was indeed very angry at Peter's hyprocrasy. If you need the verses, I will looked them up for you. There should be three references to this scene in Scripture. Also you will need to use a modern reference bible. The KJV would not have it since it was wriiten in the Elizabethian era of proper language. The Greek it very explicit on what really happened, can't be translated properly in English.

Part 1
Concerning swearing or cussing, society determines what is acceptable or not and thus we learn as we grow up what our part of the world will tolerate or will not tolerate. But when it comes down to the issue of cussing personally, is it sin or not, it is not determined by the standard our society (those we are influenced by and these we influence) but by the Word of God. Now the scriptures do not say this word or that is a cuss word, God does not judge the individual words we speak, He judges us before we speak, or do, because He does NOT judge us on what we say or do but by the thoughts and intentions of our heart.

There are several passages that discuss course language and jesting.

My point would be to realize that you WILL have to anwer for your words.

Matt 12:36 "But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment."

Why would you want to answer to Jesus himself for using curse words?
---Mark_Eaton on 12/10/09


Pastor Jim: Scripture does indeed say Peter cussed. But, can you reference Scripture that says Paul cussed & he (and Peter) used unseemly hand gestures when they were angry? Thanks!

Although Paul and Peter used curse words and hand gestures when they were angry.

It was NOT something they were proud of and they preached against it.

I agree with Rhondas post on this subject.
---Pastor_Jim on 12/9/09


Although there is nothing new under the sun, cursing, swearing, and bitterness have gone from being bad to being normal of everyday speech (what is good will become bad, what is bad will become good). Be careful about what you say. If it's not good to prophane God, why would you use prophanity toward others? Refuse profane and old wives' fables. Avoid profane and vain babblings and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.

KarenD ... It puzzles me that the "f" word is used frequently in American films and TV series which are intended to be OK for children to watch.

In the UK this word is not used outside Adult films

"St. Paul was not above using a few salty expressions himself." Cluny, 12/8

Please give Bible references that support your statement.
---Leon on 12/9/09


The sad thing is that these vile and filthy words are now commonplace in the workplace and in public. We are constantly bombarded by words that were once considered taboo in public. The "f" word is used so often in public that I cringe each time it is used.
---KarenD on 12/9/09


Rhonda ... Totally agree with yuo

Josef ... God did not use blsphemous words, or obscenities

why would you want to use curse words?

curse words are not acceptable in the work place why would you want to use them in your personal life?

curse words are of the world and the people in the world it isn't uncommon to hear them today and nobody is perfect ...if occasional due to anger or frustration they slip out it would only be natural as it is the way of the world

personally in my life I'm not offended by them yet I don't look up to people who use curse words in every sentence they appear ignorant and uneducated

treat people as you wish to be treated ...if you use these words toward others regularly and they are regularly used toward you it might be time to seek out friends who have higher standards

"Is it unbiblical to use curse words toward people?"
Un-biblical? No. The Father cursed cain. Noah cursed Canaan.
However as a N.T. believers one is to:
"Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not." Rom 12:14
For wicked is he whose "mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud:." And "As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him." Psa 10:7>109:17
Concerning profanity, those that use it will be classed under this verse.
"Their throat [is] an open sepulchre, with their tongues they have used deceit, the poison of asps [is] under their lips: Whose mouth [is] full of cursing and bitterness: Rom 3:13,14

To Whosoever Has An Ear To Hear?

Brethren, "Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing & cursing", and these things should not be, but the slang use of 'curse words' aren't always spoken with the intent of cursing a person !!

The Word of God is quick, powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul & spirit, and of the joints & marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb.4:12

So don't be fooled into thinking that cursings are found in the outward appearance of words which aren't pleasing to the ear, b/c a cursing is not discerned by its container but by the intent found in its continence !!
