WHY DO PEOPLE CURSE?




WHY DO PEOPLE CURSE?


People in normal conversation often use cuss words without realizing they are  using them.

They do not consider or care if it offends anyone.

They feel it is a socially acceptable practice and a God given right to do so.

Is there a difference between swearing and cursing?

Broadly speaking - - probably not, but a narrower view would reveal that cursing invokes the name of Deity. 

The Cuss Control Academy says; cursing among other things is a tool for Whiners and Complainers. 

It discloses a lack of character, it is immature, it reflects ignorance, it contributes to the decline of civility, the Dumbing of America.

It lacks imagination, and it is abrasive language that has lost its effectiveness.

Some say that the use of profanity stimulates the brain which causes the adrenaline gland to inject a sense of power in the one using it.

Since the name of the creator GOD is often used we find HE also uses some words describing said profanicators and their future.

First God says don’t use my name in any profane way!

Second HE says if you do you will pay the consequences.

HE further says, by your words you will be justified and by your words you will be condemned.

While many educated people have tried to convince us it is helpful and even proper to use profane words the Higher Power warns us not to do it.

"You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God"

"The mind of this country, taught to aim at low objects, eats upon itself." Ralph Waldo Emerson offered that observation in 1837, but his words echo with painful prescience in today's very different United States. Americans are in serious intellectual trouble -- in danger of losing our hard-won cultural capital to a virulent mixture of anti-intellectualism, anti-rationalism and low expectations.

  2. I'm a heart-breaker re: these things. I've said that, as a kid, I was filled with the bad words through my mom and dad then and used them consistently in and through the house. When the broke into my life significantly, I stopped in my early 20s. WELL, it's a heartbreaker for me that many of them now, even strong Christians, think it's OK to use those words. Been words in school and considered "normal". I see and hear so much and some people just say that the reason we don't like it is b/c we're old people. Anyhow, you grabbed my heart attention. Thank you. Sorry if I yammered so much! Bless you...
