Re: Is Apostolic CUSSIN' sinful?

When I was a child I was taught not to say Dog Gone- When I asked why I couldnot use those words- the reason I was given was that dog was god spelled backwards. Even as a small child that did not make sense to me!!!!

I hope it's not a sin or I'm going to sizzle in the bad place.

__________________________________________________ _______________________

We use euphemisms every day and they are a creative part of language ....

A euphemism is an expression intended by the speaker to be less offensive, disturbing, or troubling to the listener than the word or phrase it replaces, or in the case of doublespeak to make it less troublesome for the speaker.

Some are absolutely harmless ... for example the euphemisms we use for DEATH.

Wiki:

The English language contains numerous euphemisms related to dying, death, burial, and the people and places which deal with death. The practice of using euphemisms for death is likely to have originated with the "magical belief that to speak the word "death" was to invite death; where to "draw Death's attention" is the ultimate bad fortune—a common theory holds that death is a taboo subject in most English-speaking cultures for precisely this reason. It may be said that one is not dying, but fading quickly because the end is near. People who have died are referred to as having passed away or passed or departed.

Deceased
is a euphemism for "dead," and sometimes the deceased is said to have gone to a better place, but this is used primarily among the religious with a concept of Heaven.

Others include common euphemisms include...
  • pre-owned vehicles for used cars
  • A student being held back a grade level for having failed the grade level
  • correctional facility for prison
  • the big C for cancer (in addition, some people whisper the word when they say it in public, and doctors have euphemisms to use in front of patients, e.g. "c.a.")
  • bathroom tissue, t.p., or bath tissue for toilet paper (Usually used by toilet paper manufacturers)
  • custodian or caretaker for janitor (also originally a euphemism — in Latin, it means doorman.)
  • sanitation worker (or, sarcastically, sanitation engineer) for "garbage man" (Also known as dustman in the UK)
However, is it OK for us to replace cuss words???
Great question, SDG. Geez, Louise, You're so smart.


Soli Deo Gloria!!!!

Re: Is Apostolic CUSSIN' sinful?

"Cursing," what we call slang is not sinful. End of story.

It may not be perfectly appropriate (read: modest) at all times. But it's not sinful.

One of the most beautiful stories of conversion come at the climax of the story, where the drug addict who was running away from the Hound of Heaven, finally says "F$#$#* it, I quit," indicating her emotional surrender to God. The way it was said was actually quite beautiful. May not float all of our boats, but just throwing that out there.

What about the term.....here goes..... hope I don't get in trouble....... but the term, "he screwed up".... what does that mean. I've heard it used from the pulpit. Isn't that about as vulgar as you can get?

What say ye???

I should clarify that the conversion story was a novel.

To the pure, everything is vulgar. To the vulgar, everything is pure. Or... did I, ahem, mess that up?
