Cussing Christians

30- Minute Bible Study

Can Christians use profanity and still please God? Have you met a Christian, who use profanity? Does this mean they are hypocrites, or they are not Christians? King David committed murder and adultery, but the Bible states, “He was a man after God’s own heart.” What category does this place Christians in?

God favored King David in the Old Testament. King David cried out to God and repented. Should Christians repent when they use foul language, and how does this affect their relationship with God?

Is it true the words that come from your mouth come from your heart? By studying this 30 minute Bible Study, you will gain a better insight into how God feels when we use words that are unholy and destructive. Let’s see what the Bible say’s!

  1. Let 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. Ephesians 4:29 (KJV)
  2. Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. Ephesians 5:4 (KJV)
  3. But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. Colossians 3:8 (KJV)
  4. 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. Exodus 20:7(KJV)
  • The keywords for number one is communication, edifying, may minister and grace. What do these keywords mean to you as a Christian? How can these keywords help you as a Christian?
  • Compare Matthew 12:35, Luke 6:45 with Ephesians 5:4. What do these verses have in common or connect? As a Christian, how should these verses affect you?
  • Colossians 3:8 makes it clear we must rid ourselves of evil practices and immorality. The Apostle Paul wanted to make sure in Colossians we rid ourselves of the old nature and put on the new nature given by Christ. Remain true to our Christian faith. Look at the keywords in number three. Why should we not commit these sins if we are Christians? Read 2 Timothy 2:16 this verse is  essential for Christian teaching; how could we apply this verse to our lives as Christians?
  • Exodus 20:7 states, “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. Read Exodus 20:7 what does this verse mean and how as Christians, we should take this verse seriously?
