Profanity and Vulgarity

There’s some controversy brewing over using certain language. I submit to you that are believers in Jesus that there should be no controversy for us. We do not take the Lord’s name in vain, nor do we swear by His name. Who that’s a Christian would try and justify either and go against the clear teachings of Jesus? And vulgarity should be every bit as much shunned by us as profanity. Aren’t we told, “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good in the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” And a little further down, in the same letter: “Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.” We are told not to participate in the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather to reprove them. So don’t be afraid to speak the truth in love to a profane, vulgar person who needs Jesus in their lives. And allow the Holy Spirit to control that unruly tongue that in the natural is set on fire of hell itself.

  • I was recommended this blog by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about my difficulty.

    You are incredible! Thanks!

    Tranh, one of the things we learn, after we have committed our lives to Christ, is that He wants to have dominion, Lord-ship, control, over every part of us, including our tongues. For many, learning to yield their tongue to Christ is a very difficult task to accomplish. But through His power, even this member of the body, can be trained to speak words of encouragement, up building and praise to the Lord, rather than hurtful, blasphemous, corrupt and profane words.

The Lord’s Message Was Himself

Fundamentally, our Lord's message was Himself. He did not come merely to preach a Gospel; He himself is that Gospel. He did not come merely to give bread; He said, "I am the bread." He did not come merely to shed light; He said, "I am the light." He did not come merely to show the door; He said, "I am the door." He did not come merely to name a shepherd; He said, "I am the shepherd." He did not come merely to point the way; He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
--J. Sidlow Baxter (1903-1999, Australian born pastor and theologian who authored as many as thirty books)

The Beginning of Coldness in the Heart

"Forsake not the assembling of yourselves together," is a most important exhortation.
Even if we should not derive any especial benefit, at the time, so far as we are
conscious, yet we may be kept from much harm. And very frequently the beginning
of coldness of heart is nourished by keeping away from the meetings of the saints.
-- George Muller

Freedom & Extinction

I came across this profound quote of President Ronald Reagan that is worth sharing:

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We did not pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

Thanksgiving – Thursday, November 24, 2011

Why should we here in the U.S.A. be thankful? "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, for His mercy endures forever." And we are told in the Bible, "It is He that made us and not we ourselves. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture." Let's not allow ourselves to fall below the level of animals as did the people of God addressed in Isaiah 1: "The ox knows his owner, and the donkey its master's manger; but Israel does not know, my people do not consider." Take time to thank the Lord for all that He does. And if you have not yet received the gift of eternal life, you may do so by accepting it as a free gift paid for by the precious blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become sons of God"
