“But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.”   

Ephesians 5:3-4

As Christians, these should not be found in us; our attitude to the world should always be “I don’t care what’s going on in the world. I don’t care how everybody else lives. I don’t care what it’s going to cost me. I will live in such a way that Jesus Christ is magnified in my body.” In Revelation 2, Jesus spoke about the Church in Thyatira and warned them against compromising with the world instead of sacrificing whatever was required for them to Jesus to be magnified in their bodies.

All sin has consequences. Sexual sin especially has consequences. Unrepentant, ongoing, continual sexual sin has devastating consequences.

Jesus said, in Matthew 12:35-36, “The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.”

Dear friend, you may think that a few curse words and couple of dirty jokes don’t mean anything but they do whether you tell them at the barber shop, on a trip, in an e-mail to friends.

Be careful with your mouth, use them to praise and give thanks to God rather than cursing and swearing.

God bless you.
