Good news about cussing?

Think again, there is nothing good news about swearing.

Just for the record, reporting on the evil in the world gets extremely tiresome. I would rather, much rather, be resting quietly with someone on my front porch taking in the righteousness of  the Lord than exposing this non-sense. This is why John wrote, I have much to write to you, but I do not want to use paper and ink. Instead, I hope to visit you and talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be complete. (2 John 1:12)

However, here goes: Better to enter heaven mute than a strong man who swore himself through hell’s gates.

But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.  (Colossians 3:8)


Experiencing righteousness, the power of holiness, will make you stronger than the strongest weightlifter who swears up a storm.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. (Ephesians 6:10)

God doesn’t mock us if you want His “mighty power” then experience the power. If you walk in obedience to the Holy Spirit – you guessed it – there is indeed power if you hunger and thirst for righteousness. However, I do not want to use pen and paper instead I offer my front porch to those honestly seeking the power of God.

How is that for lifting the weight of sin off one’s life?

(independent.co.uk)—In both situations, they found that swearing rudely resulted in significant improvements in performance compared with uttering ‘neutral’ words.
The study was a follow-up on previous research which found that swearing helps increase tolerance of pain, which may explain why so many of us let out profanities when hurt.
Dr Richard Stephens, from the University of Keele, who led both teams, said: “We know from our earlier research that swearing makes people more able to tolerate pain.
“A possible reason for this is that it stimulates the body’s sympathetic nervous system – that’s the system that makes your heart pound when you are in danger.
“If that is the reason, we would expect swearing to make people stronger too, and that is just what we found in these experiments.
“Quite why it is that swearing has these effects on strength and pain tolerance remains to be discovered. We have yet to understand the power of swearing fully,” Dr Stephens added.
