In my opinion, cussing is definitely wrong. The bible doesn’t say much about cussing, but it does say to keep your thoughts and your words pure. I know from personal experience, that even just hearing cuss words a lot can drill them into your mind. You will eventually find yourself repeating them over and over again in your mind, and they will become part of your normal vocabulary if you don’t stop them. So, even though it may not be mentioned directly as a sin in the Bible, cussing can be very addicting, and can keep your mind and words from staying pure.

I believe it is wrong, but I still do it. I am such a hypocrite I know! Never start cussing cause it is VERY hard to stop!

I believe that cursing is wrong simply because I feel as if I need to live for God and that starts with pure things coming out in, not only your words but also your actions.

I think Ephesians 4:29 says it all. Many people make the excuse that this verse is about gossip. Regardless, we should honor God in all we say and do. We are called to be transformed by the Word of God, not conformed to the world.

It depends. Some cuss words are irreverent, and cause things that are important to be taken too lightly.
Some are just vulgar, or gross–but literally are just a different arrangement of letters that mean the exact same thing of an “acceptable” word. (Like the S word vs saying “poop”–which I hate when people say either one, like gross stop lol.)
Some are just words that shouldn’t be used, because again, vulgar and inappropriate, and nobody needs to be hearing or thinking those words or their definitions.
Words like bada** though i don’t consider to be a cussword. It’s just…a descriptive word, not even meant to offend.
In general, I’d say don’t start cussing. Like Running said, it’s hard to stop!

If it offends someone or is vulgar. yes, I’d view it as cussing. the “f” word in context where you’re bringing someone down or simply talking in a non-classy manner “These f—ing cars in traffic!” The word talks about speaking in a wholesome manner. What about when a police officer needs to describe a nasty murder scene to a judge in court? That’s not very “wholesome”, so I feel like that particular verse could be more of a “check the context” verse.

I believe cursing is wrong, too. I think we should speak life in our words to build each other up. Even if we’re mad, we can use other words that don’t have such a heavy weight of negative meaning behind them 🙂

I believe cursing is very wrong because the Word of God says bless and do not curse and that we should tame our tongue instead of letting it set the whole course of our life on fire. Cursing does NOT glorify God and that’s what we as Christians are supposed to do
