To determine whether cussing is sin, we need to first discuss what sin is, and second define what cursing, swearing, or cussing is. The Bible tells us that sin is transgression of law and rebellion against God. It is furthermore described as imaginations of unrenewed heart, defiling, disgraceful, and unrighteous, among other things. Cursing is our way of describing words that are, for the most part, culturally or socially unacceptable. It is a slippery slope, however, to define curse words because words are always taking on new meanings. Some curse words in the English language are actually authorize words to describe authentic things but have taken on new meanings as time has progress. Because of this, it is nearly impossible to create a canonized list of words that are considered curses. Nevertheless, it can be conclude that there are words that are purely crude or demeaning and are therefore unequivocally curse words. It needs to be understood that cursing can also include any verbal expression of a word that may not necessarily be considered a traditional curse word. This means that understanding of cursing needs to be expanded to not only include culturally or socially unacceptable words but any word that is used to demean another individual or express extreme dissatisfaction with a particular situation, especially when that dissatisfaction is direct toward God. Christians are often guilty of substituting more culturally acceptable words in place of unacceptable words to describe their dissatisfaction with situation, or even in reference to individual. These are called euphemisms and cannot be considered justified alternatives. Scripture has much to say about how Christians ought to use their tongues. Jesus specifically taught that what comes out of man's mouth is evidence of what is in his heart. Luke 6: 45 say, good man out of good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and an evil man out of evil treasure brings forth what is evil; For his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart. Paul wrote in Ephesians 4: 29, Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to hearers. John MacArthur wrote in this verse, word for corrupt refers to that which is foul or rotten, such as spoiled fruit or putrid meat. Foul language of any sort should never pass Christian lips because it is totally out of character with his new life in Christ. The final portion of verse offers worthy use of our language and is good for edification. James gives us three illustrations from nature to demonstrate the sinfulness of cursing: With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God; from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brother these things ought not to be this way. Do fountains send out from the same opening both fresh and bitter water?

Whats the bottom line?

The bottom line of the creation / evolution debate is that if evolutionists can show that atheistic evolution is true, they will have eliminated the last Great Day of Judgment. However, there have already been three occasions when the whole of sinful mankind has been Judge by God. The fact that these three events have occurred testifies to the certainty of fourth and final judgment in future. The first universal judgment was an event known as Fall, described in Genesis 3. The reason was deliberate disobedience of Adam and Eve to the specific instruction of God that they were not to eat from the tree in the Garden of Eden, called tree of knowledge of good and evil. When Adam and Eve disobey God, effects for them include knowledge of sin, experience of guilt, loss of holiness, fear of God, forfeiture of fellowship with God, and feelings of embarrassment towards each other. And, above and beyond these consequential effects, there was specific pronouncement of Judgment by God, sometimes called curse. This contains both spiritual and physical dimensions, not only for Adam and Eve, but also for their descendants, that is, for all mankind. Spiritually, they were from then on cut off from God, so that on that day they die spiritually. Physically, their human bodies begin to die and would eventually return to dust, Eve was told that child - bearing would be a matter of sorrow and that her husband would rule over her, ground was curse so that Adams ' work from then on would be hard labour, and they were cast out of Garden of Eden. Note that God's mercy is seen in the midst of this judgment, in two aspects: There was promise in Genesis 3: 15, that the seed of woman would bruise the head of the serpent. The penalty of physical death was itself mercy! Without physical death, mankind would have been condemned to live for ever in sorrowful result of rebellion against God. However, because of the death of Christ on the Cross for our sins, and resurrection, those who repent of their sins and have faith in God, after death, will unite with God in Heaven and attain that state of holiness and fellowship with God, which our ancestors, Adam and Eve, lost for us in Garden of Eden. The second universal judgment was the catastrophe of Flood, described in Genesis 6 - 9. Reasons for this judgment were that the wickedness of man was great, every imagination of thought of His heart was only evil, all flesh had corrupted His way upon earth, and the earth was filled with violence. In this judgment, all sinful mankind die, as do all air - breathing land animals except for those on the Ark.
