Our dear Christian brothers and sisters, welcome to you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Today we will know what the Bible says about bad language.
The Bible says that all of us who are children of God are children of light and that we are all righteous because our God is righteous. If we think we are righteous, but we do not control our mouths, we speak nonsense and bad language, then our righteousness is worthless (James 1:26).
We thank and praise our great God with our mouths and how we can use our tongues to speak evil of others? (James 3:10)
(1 Corinthians 3:17-18) God’s Word says that we all are God’s temple and God’s Spirit dwells in us, and if anyone tries to destroy this temple of God, God will destroy him. If we destroy this temple of God, then no one else is to be blamed for our own destruction.
The word of God in the Bible (Proverbs 18:21) says that our tongue can speak what brings us life or death. That is, the Word of God teaches us that when we speak to someone, we should not use bad language or wrongdoing at all, but speak with humility and politeness. Below here some Bible verses that speak of foul language or filthy speech.
