    As a 'casual christian' I would say it's not the words that you use but the tone of voice, the attitude behind what ye may sayeth.

    Well in Biblical times they would be in Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek, if the Bible is to be taken as the source of guidance. But they wouldn't be in the Bible. Many of the English-language obscenities stem from Anglo Saxon, I think maybe because it was the language of the lower classes after the Norman conquest. The Conquest resulted in a French speaking upper class and upper clergy.

    Do you mean "swearing" as in taking an oath? Jesus said let your yea be yea and nay, nay.

    But if you mean cussing, then yes it's a sin. Jesus said that from out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, and that we will be judged for every word we say. The implication being that it is not only how we say things, but also the things we say that can be good or evil depending on what we say and how we say it.

    does the bible define what constitutes as a sinful 'cuss'? i guess where im heading is - words are just words, many 'cuss' words are actually just anatomical names or descriptions. so really its the intent behind the words that really gives them sinful meaning. if the intent is really the sin, then all words can be used in a sinful way. therefore i dont see why christians should avoid using the f-word or c-word and so on because if used with no sinful intent then they are not 'cusses'.

    I do not think 'cussing', or maybe more properly, 'cursing', is all that sinful.

    Blasphemy, now, is FAR more sinful.
