do you consider swearing (cursing, cussing, whatever) sinning? because i try not to sin but i swear fairly often. by the way should this be in the religious thread? thanks.

no its nowhere near a sin. Its simply a way to express anger in words. and thats better than expressing anger physically miright
#3
I really can't see how it could be a sin, regardless of what anything says. they're just words.

I however can see how swearing in an offensive manner could be a sin. then again, any offensive manner could be considered sin.

I consider it obnoxious. But I do it anyway.

I think swears that involve god (such as god dammit, and jesus christ) are probably sins, but calling someone a son of a bitch or a **** isn't.

Sin isn't real. It's something made up to scare you into believing in God.

Also, no I don't think swearing is a "sin" because it's not one of the "Ten Commandments".

Cussing is a sin. It's as simple as that. It's something that is offensive and thus does not promote "god" and thus it is a sin. According to the church, man only exists to glorify god.
#19
mmmm.... If you want to see if is a sin ,check out the bible ,specially in the book of Romans.

there's blasphemy which i think comes under sin (jesus christ, bloody hell, even tame ones like blinking, blinding, blooming, which originate from an offensive phrase referring to the virgin mary, sod (as it comes from sodomite...), and things like "oh my god!")

but the good ol' anglo-saxon ones like fuck, shit etc aren't anything religious.

If you use the name of God in vain, it is.


So I'm gonna say no since f***, sh*t, and b***h are not god.

Does it even matter? even if you don't curse, you're bound to commit some other since.

Using the Lord's name in vain (God dammit, Jesus Christ, etc.) is a sin, but things like ****, ****, ass, and **** are all fair game.

the bible says, 'don't let anything wicked come out of your mouth.' who makes the rules about what's wicked and what's not? even if something like sh1t was a 'swear word', it means the same thing as crap, poop, feces, pies, etc. so if saying holy sh1t isn't acceptable, what makes holy feces allright to say?

From the way I interpret Romans, it seems like Paul leaves it open to different situations. Seemingly around those of whom consider it a sin or offensive, by cursing one would no longer be acting in love. Amongst others, it would not block acting in love towards them. If the presiding commandment here is "Love your neighbor," this qualify as a sin in those certain situations. However, the bible also refers to taming the tongue, which speaks to the power words have. I mean this to say that if one seeks to restrain himself to cussing only in "okay" situations he or she might let one slip out in other not-ok situations when he or she isn't even thinking. Since cussing once in a situation like this would therefore be a sin, not cussing at all is probably a good strategy to take.

"As one who is in the Lord Jesus, I am fully convinced that no food is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for him it is unclean. If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy your brother for who Christ died."

I don't see how they can be considered sin. I mean what is the REAL difference between saying "ass" or "butt?" They both convey the same meaning...I once asked a lady at my church when I was young and she said, "Swearing dishonors your parents and that breaks the commandment." Which is bull****.

No, but it is a CURSEword.
Those who swear bring a curse apon themselves.

Thou shalt not swear.
Especially words like meecrob.

As long as you don't use God's name in vain. Or damn, because apparently damnation is serious business.
#39
If it is a sin, then it's stupid and flawed, because you're still going to think the swear. And if you just use euphemisms, then you're essentially doing the same thing: "crap!" instead of "****!" The meaning and emotion is the exact same. And what's a "swear word" changes with time (remember how bad "damn" was in Gone with the Wind, decades ago?).

So if it's a sin, who cares?
