What is cussing?

Profanity is often:

  • a weak attempt to appear strong.
  • an insincere use of words that ignores their literal meaning.
  • insult language that can easily create a hostile environment.
  • an intimidated attempt to appear intimidating.
  • a lack of self-control.
  • an irrational and subjective use of the power of speech.
  • a way to alienate people who want to keep their mind positive.
  • adolescent talk masquerading as adult language.
  • a limited vocabulary.
  • a coverup for fear.
  • the way to cuss and provoke a fuss.
  • a way to use words without thinking.
  • a means of making a phrase sound like a tantrum.
  • the compulsive attempt to appear in control.
  • a way to get rid of people who want meaningful conversation.
  • the manifestation of a desire to bully.
  • a bad habit that a lot of people would like to overcome.
  • a sign of insecurity.
  • a lack of originality.
  • an example of being in bondage to a chain of vulgar thought.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
