    I posted a similar poll a few years ago, and feel the need to do it again. Do you cuss?

    When I get really angry, I say, "Nancy Pelosi!"

    Is that cursing?

    Sometimes. It's a very hard habit to break, but I'm getting better.

    However, there's a word that's just nonsense that I made up playing with my children one day. Now, I find myself using it to express surprise or anger instead of cussing.

    It may sound silly to those listening who don't know the story behind it, but it's a lot better than what I used to say.

    I think if there's one area I'd really like to learn to control my tongue, it's in the area of what the Bible calls "minced oaths". The problem with cussing is that most of the time, you don't even realize you've done it until it's too late.

    Could not vote as I could not see a simple yes box.

    Have a story to tell or two on this actually.

    Why would a Christian cuss?

    Do not let your anger lead you into sin.

    Some of us fail.

    We have a Advocate though by the Grace of our God.

    I knew a guy, who, when he missed a golf shot or a putt, or got upset, he would say "hammmmmmmmBURGer!"

    I also knew a young preacher who played golf. One day we were playing with him and one of our group asked, "Preacher, when you make a bad shot, are you tempted to cuss?"

    "Naw," he said, "I don't cuss. But when I spit the grass turns brown."

    Sin is bad, but we all fail.

    Geez, even I don't go that far in Wesley's holiness teaching.

    To say we never sin is to deny Scripture.

    What are these sins? 9/10 they come from anger.

    As far as I know I don't cuss. I do, however, use substitute words that some would still classify as offensive. Being part British and having lived two years in the UK, I picked up the word "bloody". I have no idea if that is meant as a cuss word--maybe it is.

    I have in the past but I haven't in a long time. That is until the horse I was riding tried to kill me for the umteenth time. I wasn't proud of what I said - it wasn't "terrible" but it wasn't good either. It was absolutely said in a fit of anger and fear as I beat the snot out of this very large horse. I guess it worked. He's been a doll ever since. :tongue3: For most, what I said wouldn't even be considered "cussing" but for me it kind of was. I hope to not fall to that again.

    Well said, Rev! LOL!

    As a delivery driver, I am tempted to cuss quite often, and I succumb to the temptation more often than i like to admit. Praise God that He is a forgiving God!

    Jon, "bloody" is deemed to be the worst of swearing, and at the same time, the most commonly used word as an expression of amazement. For example: "Bloody hell, that is unbelievable."

    On the other hand, there are a lot of Brit expressions or words that migt be deemed cussing in America, but not in the UK.

    I think everyone employs cussing, but it all boils down to definition and culture.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    I couldn't vote. Some of the descriptions were too vague for me to figure out what they meant. :laugh:
