Foul Mouth

Ephesians 5:4Nor should there be any obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place. (NIV 1978)

My Musing – Of course, we know that taking God’s name in vain is specifically forbidden. But beyond that, how do we know what language is improper? If it is considered vulgar or obscene by the world’s standards we should clearly avoid using the language. If we would be uncomfortable using the language around our parents or clergy, then it should also be avoided. If in doubt, use a different word.

My Advice – Watch your language. There is no need for obscene, profane or coarse language. Do not allow yourself to become de-sensitized by foul language just because it is common.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
