Coworker Has A Bad Mouth

How do I deal with a coworker whom I sit next to who constantly curses and disrespects our Savior's Name by saying His Name as swearing and in rage? I have reported her to management, and she has been spoken to and now hates me for reporting her.

Moderator - Pray and fast for her to come to the Lord.

I don't know your situation very well, but it sounds like you are in a bad place.
If you're a "book person", I'd recommend the book "Boundaries" by Cloud & Townsend.

Many believers deal with some form of boudary issues. This book does a pretty good job of pointing out powerful truths in the Word on the topic.

Again I don't your situation that well but I hope that helps.

since you have to work with her or him, do like the moderator said and also try to find something to tune her or him out. And if he or she asked just let them know that as long as they are disrespecting Our Lord that you are not going to listen to it.
---Ann on 10/2/07

Are you expecting something from this person that he/she cannot give?I agree with the moderator. I would not have let this person know I went to management,either. This was a mistake on your part. You could have been fired for this. On jobs, I have learned to mind my business and leave the rest up to the Lord. You are making yourself miserable,by focusing on this co-worker. Been there and done that.Don't work. Pray.

Anoint her cube with oil...we war not against flesh and blood. Your fight is not against her, but the foul spirits that control her! Praise God the blood of Jesus can set her free!

I worked in a similar environment for years and years. You have allowed fear to come in. Eating a cheeseburger is mild. Don't let the enemy throw you out of balance here. Quiet yourself. Stay connected to God. God is not mad because you fell off the vegetarian diet. Jesus Christ gives us the victory in every situation. When the devil is telling you, you can't, Jesus is telling you, you can do all things through Him and with Him.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
II Tim 1:7

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strenghen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Isa 41:10

Cast your burden on the Lord,
And He shall sustain you;
He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.
Psalm 55:22
---Rachel on 11/28/06

I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Rom 8:38,39

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.

Isa 43:2

Pray and fast for yourself. Moderator's answer covers all the bases. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Read the word before you go to work, listen to Christian praise and worship music on the way. Pray for your own tongue before you enter the building.
---Raine on 11/28/06

Derrick, The Word says that the abundance of the heart,the mouth speaks. Don't allow yourself to be influenced by the world. Jesus said His people were in the world but not OF the world.Consult either your supervisor,or the supervisor's supervisor,and keep moving up "the chain" until the problem gets resolved. If that doesn't work,you might want to consider finding a new place to work,no workplace is perfect,but what you are describing sounds like the pit of Hell. I will pray for you. God Bless!

I really am at my wits end. Just today one of my potty mouthed coworkers tested my faith by forcing me to eat a cheeseburger (I am vegetarian). I was so upset that I vomitted in the restrooms and alot of demonic words came forth.
I had to take the rest of the day off to go to church and pray to our lord for his forgiveness and to release me from the demons' influence. I am too frightened to return to the devil's den that is my workplace.
---Derrick on 11/28/06

I have a different but related problem. All my coworkers use thy name in vain, and use as many profanaties as proper dictionary words. After 6 months, I find myself letting the odd one slip out also. I am at a loss as to what to do. I am sure the devil has taken hold of me. Please help me.
---Derrick on 11/28/06

I know the fine line you're walking here. Writing her a letter was "documentation" for both of you. She would see this as threat to job, hence a pulling away from you or more confrontations. It's been my experience, the more "hell" that is raised on a job, management more often than not starts making it difficult for the afflicted one. All the harrassment rights sound good on paper, but I've yet to see the whistleblower end up on top. There's a better way. Mod. said pray and fast.
---Raine on 10/18/06

Thank you all for your good advice. I wrote her a letter a year ago after we had a misunderstanding and apologized for my offense but also told her I was offended by her cursing and swearing. She just got more angry and hateful. I agree that there is demonic influence going on with her. I will continue to pray for her salvation.
---Mrs._Williams on 10/17/06

The Pharisees followed Jesus around and ridiculed him by telling him He has a demon. If you read the first 12 chapters of Matthew, Jesus ignored them and gave them NO creedence whatsoever. Act like you don't hear her. Even if you do, do not give creedence or make a comment to her. If you ignore someone they eventually aren't heard anymore. Can you play a radio very low and listen to soft music? I do that here at my desk.
---Donna9759 on 10/17/06

I'd say and smile "Well, you're sure calling on the right one!" Didn't give sermon. Worked with foul mouthed unsaved woman. One of her favorites, "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph". She was lude, crude, obnoxious. Short skirts, no underwear. Worked with her for years. She told me my eyes scared her to death. Especially when I gave her the "look". She drank like a fish, cussed like sailor and smoked like a chimney. I slid the word in whenever I could. She was as mean as a skunk.
---Raine on 10/17/06

I'm sorry this is happening to you but if you start putting 'oil' on her work station or reporting her to the boss it will only make things worse. Try to explain to her ONCE why it offends you then let it go. Pray about it. Even tho it may seem hard to do, try to ignore it.Above all be friendly to this person and set a good example. This is only my opinion, what I would do.
good luck, God bless you.

**Your fight is not against her, but the foul spirits that control her!**

While foul language and blasphemy can be a sign of demonic possession, I think it's more this woman's own nastiness and bad habits.
---Jack on 10/17/06

Abraham Lincoln said the best way to destroy your enemies is to make them your friends.

Do what you must to help her understand you and why you are offended.
Jesus is a real person to us, not a phrase we say when we are upset.

Bring her gifts, and yes as the Moderator said pray for her like you would a little sister who's lost the way.
---Pharisee on 10/17/06

Talk directly to her, not your employer. Gently tell her it offends you when she uses your Savious name as a swear word. Ask how she would feel, if you used her dads name as a curse word.
---bethie on 10/17/06

First of All, the Battle isn't yours it Belongs to the Lord. You need to go into Spiritual Warfare on behalf of that lost Soul. I have learned there is a Deeper Hurt and Pain behind the Lashing out. You Need to first of all ask the Holy Spirit to Teach you to Longsuffer. Next You Need to Allow the Holy Spirit to Deal with you on the reason you are getting Offended.

Con't Realize JESUS, was never Offended, but rather the Word of GOD, states to Bless those Who Persecute YOU! Just make sure you continue to let Your Light Shine, so before Men that they may see your Good Works and Glorify Your Father in Heaven! You were Created to Endure the Hardness of the Cross like JESUS! In the end just Remember we Were all Held by a Nail and one day your co-worker story will be a part of your Testimony! To GOD, be the GLORY!!!

Have you tried explaining to her why you hate her blaspheming Jesus.
---Helen_5378 on 10/17/06

Can you request some kind of change so you do not need to sit next to her?
---Donna2277 on 10/16/06

** How do I deal with a coworker whom I sit next to who constantly curses and disrespects our Savior's Name by saying His Name as swearing and in rage? **

Next time she uses Our Lord's name as a swearword, say out loud, "Blessed be His name," or something similar.
