Christians Need To Stop Using The "F-Word"
I’m so tired of hearing Christians use the “f-word.”
No, I’m not talking about the atomic bomb of blue language, but still the word “faggot” should not be in our vocabulary. I don’t want to see it on Twitter, hear it on your mixtape, or notice it drop out of your mouth after a church service.
Just stop. It’s derogatory and damaging – both to the person you’re insulting and to the cause of Christ.
Can you imagine using similar terms to describe people?
“Hey Tommy, would please pray about joining our ‘Feed the Bums’ ministry?”
Or what about “Hey Trina, you need to drop your slutty ways and just come to Jesus?”
See how foreign that sounds?
So please, let’s eliminate that language from our mouths. Same for “no homo” and any other gay joke talk.
Do you really think Christ sees their sin as any different from our own? Thank goodness there’s not insult name for everything I do.
