Isn’t that an ugly word? I used it because it describes all bad language, not just cursing.
Well, let’s see what God has to say about it. Here are a few examples:
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain
Ephesians 4:29Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
Colossians 4:6Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man
To me, this includes cursing and profanities, vulgarities etc. I was also taught by my mamma (and she was taught by her mamma), that there are certain things that are not taboo, but are not discussed in mixed company, feminine products and feminine bodily functions should not be part of the conversation in a mixed group. Its simply not lady-like.
So, I guess if I were going to make a list of my Beloved’s likes and dislikes, I would definitely have to say that He doesn’t like bad words and He likes good words. I know that sounds rather simplistic, but its true.
This would also include certain slang terms, discussed here by Mrs.R and here at Sister Julie’s.
So, there is a list, my list of "Things my Beloved Savior Does Not Like", and cussin' is on it!
