    Doesn't Jesus teach that obscene language dulls the mind? Yet i am frustratingly finding it more and more acceptable for poeple to casually drop one.

    "it's not what goes in that counts, but what comes out"...hmm...yeah, christains shouldn't swear. but what entails swearing? naughty words, or is it the implications behind those words. currently i say "bum" and i used to say "pish pots", mainly because they're more likely to draw a chuckle than offence. but is it right? should i not even say them?

    i don't know...😛

    That's why you need to stay in reading the Word, so you won't swear.

    Don't think Jesus was that anal. Can you give a reference?

    I was channel surfing and came across this incredibly great-looking women. They said she was an ex-wife of NFL player Mark Gastineau. [Wasn't he married to that actress with real short hair, name of Nielson? This was not her, unless she has changed a bunch in the last 20 years.]

    They had to bleep out things she was saying on camera. My interest in her dropped, much like when I see a hot woman light up a cigarette.

    Ya must have went to a Catholic or Episcopal Church, they prefer to keep the Word hidden from the masses.

    I find that when I swear/cuss drop F bombs it just show a lack of self control on my part. It shows lack of respect for self & others. That being said sometimes it just feels good when angry to just drop an F bomb!!! I noticed that when people swear they use swear words as filler words could be a sign of small vocabulary or something. I agree though more than anything it is the intent that we put into words.

    Why on earth would you be expecting someone to hand out Bibles??

    Most churches would hand out the readings/gospel reading for the service. I normally take my Missal with me - it has all the readings. In any case, if you wanted to read the Bible while you were there you should've carried your own copy.
