Then, after a lot of thinking and praying and stuff, I become very not anti-swearing. I started swearing regularly. I still do, depending on who I'm around (as I don't want to offend anyone, or cause someone to stumble because swearing is one of those "pray about it" things).



I'm glad that you included this portion about being careful not to cause others to stumble. I'm not necessarily of the mind that certain words are of limits, however, I refrain from swearing because of the off chance that I will become a habitual stumbling block. In Romans 14:13-23 he broaches the subject of causing another to stumble by bringing up the unclean foods, which Christ had deemed clean. In verse 21 his solution is simple, just give it up to avoid causing controversy. I find it easier to give up as a whole than to guard myself dependent on my present company, lest I slip up.

Additionally, I just find that cleaning up my speech leads to more success in the business world. People that don't use swear words often are perceived as more intelligent (There isn't a true correlation, of course). Its also a great way to set myself apart as a vessel fit for the Master's use, as I have had several opportunities when friends asked me why I don't swear or talk about crude things. Remember, Peter used swearing as a way to DISTANCE himself from Christ when he denied him the third time.

I suppose that in the end, your heart's intent is what makes any words right or wrong. Just be mindful of the opportunities that you could miss out on be being perceived as just like everyone else at work/school. And remember the weaker believer.

Baffled! That's how I feel. Baffled! Roo.

Although I talked about the specific words that culture deems as "swear words", I've been saying almost the exact same thing.

It's easier to get your point across when you have time to think about it and aren't as emotionally involved.

That said, Scourged Soul, that was a great post.

Thanks. :) It was more or less, bits and pieces of what others were saying with some scripture thrown in for backing. I was just hoping to explain it as well as I can without stepping on too many toes.

I think that most of us are on the same page, just kinda dancing around reaching an agreement.

I think it can...the smarter you are the smarter words you use...generally that's true...I've never listened to a guy/girl who cussed and been like "wow! They're smart!"...just saying

Indeed, as Scourged Soul pointed out, people who use perverse language are generally perceived as being less intelligent. And yes, a wider vocabulary helps generate the appearance of intelligence.
However, I do not think knowledge equates to intelligence. You can memorize the definition every word in the dictionary, but if you don't know how to analyze what you read, then intelligence is not there.
And of course, knowing what the words you are reading mean can definitely help you analyze literature, but like I said, it does not equate to intelligence.
