Which ones do you slip up and say?
none of those words are problems for me :saint:
I make my students say cra....ckers lol
I don't use any of them.
When I hit my thumb with a hammer, I say "Praise the Lord" very loudly. :laugh:
My preschooler's favorite, "Oh, pickles!"
I said "Praise the Lord" when I got hit in the knee with a sledge hammer by my pastor back in the 90's.
God gives grace during times such as that, but one has to accept that grace.
I remember playing baseball on a team my dad coached. One of ther other guys said a particular word and I repeated it. Dad heard me and the other guy at the ball field and said "Take a lap." From then on, I have probably said 1 word and then repented after I cooled down.
I use "rats" whenever something goes wrong.
I said dam before but I was talking about the one on high Rock lake. We have a big dam that holds high Rock lake and I ask my brother how deep do you think it is behide that dam. I think a curse word is a curse word when you us it the wrong way. My wife friend was over and a big storm come up and she said a curse word about the storm and then my little girl said it. I was so mad and told her if she was going to talk like that she can go home. I did not punish my little girl because she did not know what it ment. I just told her it is a bad word and only bad people talk like that. My wifes friend tried to justifie her self with the word she said and I told her if she was going to talk like that she is no longer welcome over. And she has changed the way she talks around my family. Lets just say I do not like the sailors mouth.
I rarely "slip" when I use crude or hard words. It is usually intentional for use in the appropriate time and context. (Please note, there is rarely an appropriate context for most of those words, although there are certainly appropriate uses of the words "damn" and "hell" in a sermon.)
Most people who know me, including my wife, say I don't use language like that often, but (almost always) only for appropriate purposes.
I used to be a filthy-mouthed teen, and God delivered me from it when I was converted. The day after my conversion, I used a crude word and a friend suggested that I not use filthy language since I had become a disciple of Christ. That seemed right to me, and God somehow caused that not to be a major issue anymore. I only wish that God had instantly cured me of many other, more significant issues. I hate having to guard against lust, self-righteousness, etc.
I take the name of a false god in vain..."BUDDAH!!"
I had to mark one and probably could hae marked a couple of others. It is not that I intentionally use these words, it is the fact that on rare occasions my sin nature sneakes in and words I used in my past pop out.
We need to obet Epheisn 4:31 Let go of all bitterness, wrath clamor and evil speaking.
I am trying to watch what I say.
I do not curse anymore thanks be to God. Before I was saved I had a tendency to use language like that for no reason and every reason. God has truly done a work in my heart and I do not say those words anymore.
I also learned later not to say things in place of them so that people would'nt think I was swearing. :godisgood:
I don't consider fool a cuss word. I don't use it oft but I checked it because I do use it in the sense Paul did.
A lot of people consider pis* a cussword, so I refrain from that most of the time as well, but I certainly know we are at liberty to use that.
I don't say any of those words, but I don't count myself as guiltless, for God looks on the heart. Even if I do not say any swear-words with my mouth, if I have the hateful thoughts in my heart that usually accompany such words, I have sinned.
I used to cuss horribly before I was saved. I think I even created some words. The Lord delivered me of all that and now I just say things like, "Oh stinkweed!" or "Fiddlesticks!"
FTR, "Dam" is not a curse or 'swear' word, at all, in any instance, unless it is completely misused.
Ya' wanna' find out what is??
Look it up!! :thumbs: :laugh:
[Neither are the rest of these curse words, except for "Fool!", used as an interjection. That is the sole exception. The rest could possibly be considered as "swear" words, when used as an interjection, I guess.
And I don't necessarily recommend using them, in general conversation, because of "the weaker brother" principle.
But I am not upset by someone's use of any of them, although I think it sometimes shows a decided lack of vocabulary and/or effort, and/or thinking about any given subject. I do not consider five and six letter words to be "high larnin'!"
In the poll question:
I shoulda' really snipped this potential response, on account of I hate to see lies in print!
Noticed several so far! And it only took one 'click'!
(If I wanted to hear lies, I'd just turn on the radio to the current 'political "talk show"', that is airing. And it makes absolutely no difference, as to what POV is being voiced, either, in this.
And if I really wanted to see lies in print, I'd just pick up any political rag!
Ed Hell is not necsessarily a cuss word. if a preacher or somebody is telling others that if thye do not have Jesus as their lord and savior they will go to hell. This is speaking the rtruth in love not swearing.
