    Scripture tells us (believers in God) to not use our Lord's name in vain. (Exodus 20:7) A common practice, at least in the recent past, was to avoid the appearance of violation but saying something else. Gosh Dag, Julius Caesar, and other substitutes. But was this effort also in vain? Yes.

    Putting our tongue in gear, no matter the utterance, in a rote manner in response to pain, surprise, frustration reflects a lack of self control, and indicates yet another avenue to grow more Christ-like.

    Colossians 3:8 But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth.

    1Timothy 4:12 Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.

    Ephesians 5:4 and there must be no filthiness or foolish talk, or vulgar joking, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks
