Discussing Biblical issues

Word Power

“Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.” (Ephesians 4:29, NLT)

The debated issue is this: Can unwholesome (foul or abusive) talk be defined in the use of certain words or is it merely the intent of the heart?

Discussion points:

– Is the F-word (F-W) considered foul, unwholesome or abusive, or is it O.K. to be use if the intent of the heart is right?

Example: “Pastor, that was a Fing-w great message!” As compared to, “That guy is an Fing-W idiot!”

What’s your thought? Let’s explore!
