Potty Mouth


Have you ever been around people or watched a movie where it seems the language is so bad it would make a sailor blush? I mean it seems that the person is dropping F Bombs left and right and just is always using sexual terms and talking nasty?

Sadly, it's not uncommon to be sitting in the bleachers of a middle school or high school and hear students talking that way, it's not unusual to be at the mall or some public place and hear people talking this way, it's sadly not unusual to flip on many tv channels or pop in any dvd movie and hear word after word of just filthy language.

I'm not talking about the person who uses a cuss word on occasion because they get mad or aggrevated or in telling a funny story, I'm talking about the one who has a lifestyle of it. This is their normal everyday converstation and vocabulary. If they ain't using F words or talking about their genitals or sex they're asleep or dead.

I would be lying if I said I never said anything bad, those who know me well know different, however, there are some people who are just filled with so much anger, worldliness, or ignorance, that they can't carry a normal conversation. Look at their myspace, e-mails, casual conversations. Look at the music they listen to, the movies they watch, the friends they keep. Maybe I'm talking about you today?

Being a potty mouth isn't cool, it doesn't make you look cool, fit in, or grown up. It's not mature, hip, acceptable, or OK. You don't need to drop F Bombs or talking about nasty stuff all the time to get attention, fit in, or be a man, or a woman.

Again, there is a huge difference between saying something off-color or in frustration on rare occasions and living a daily lifestyle of filth, does the way you talk really represent who you are?

"But now you must rid yourself of ALL such things: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips."
Colossians 3:8 (NIV)
