Why You Should Not Curse

I am noticing that a lot of Christians now believe it is ok to curse and use profanity.

Cursing is usually prompted by anger or mixed in with coarse joking, both of which are addressed in scripture as being wrong (Ephesians 4:29, Ephesians 4:26a, Ephesians 5:4).

Cursing also exhibits a lack of self control and an inability to control your words or control your tongue (James 1:26, Proverbs 15:4). The bible addresses all of these issues.

Bottom line, if you are a Christian, you should have a measure of self control, it is a fruit of the Spirit, it is proof that the Holy Spirit is inside of you (Galatians 5:22-23).

Please take some time to consider these things, and pray about the words you use. Ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit. confess your sins and you will be forgiven and cleansed from unrighteousness.

Love you in Jesus name!
