Cursing is a huge problem

I’m having trouble finding a movie that doesn’t contain an inordinate amount of cursing in it. Even avowed Christian actors play their parts and curse when they are told to do so.. It is unnecessary, tiresome, and sickening hearing it over and again. At the very least we will hear “Jesus Christ” as a sign of exasperation and at its worst we hear G—D— exclaimed . . . Repeatedly!

Though the Bible tells us not to use the Lord’s name in vain, it is used in practically any movie as well as throughout society. Satan no doubt plays a central role. But he doesn’t deserve all the blame, aren’t we to blame as well?  Our culture has “evolved” into a nation that has integrated cursing into normalcy.

I have used foul language most of my life. It is ignorant on my part and makes me look like a fool. I am far worse when I’m around non-Christians, but some non-Christians don’t curse at all. I hate when I curse especially around someone who does not know the Lord. I know Him and follow Him and yet I still curse. It’s maddening!

I have conquered many sins in my life; drinking alcohol, taking drugs, fighting at the drop of the hat, to name a few, but cursing somehow, (for now anyway), has defeated me. I’m part of the problem and see no quick way to solve it.  When Jesus was confronted by two of His disciples inquiring why they could not exorcise a particular demon, He answered that this kind of demon required fasting and prayer to remove.

Paul said that he hated what he did when he sinned, but he could not stop. He said the mind was willing and even greatly desired not to sin, but some sins are of the flesh. I’m not sure I understand this, but it makes me feel a little better about my sin of cursing to hear the Apostle Paul lamenting that even he could not control his sin. However, sin is still wrong, and we must make every effort to achieve righteousness. This does not mean that the law is not good, but that sin is passed on genetically.

Romans 7:15
We continue to do what we hate—we sin—even when we mean to do what was right. It’s not that we are still slaves to sin, but that we are divided by our own competing desires.
