SORRY ABOUT MY LANGUAGE, PREACHER

Introduction

Not infrequently when I was in full-time preaching, and even occasionally from people who know that I was a full-time preacher and still preach occasionally, I have heard words similar to the ones that form the title of this article when people used profanity in my presence. Now, apology is good, and I am in favor of it and encourage it - as long as it is sincere. However, I wonder if these apologies are directed at the right person.
What does the Bible say about profanity? Should one apologize when he uses profanity in a preacher's or any Christian's presence? Let us see.

A Wholesome Tongue Is a Tree of Life

Solomon writes in Proverbs 15:4, "A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit." As the wise man often does, he presents a truth followed by its antithesis (See also Eccl. 10:12-14).
Do we not see this scenario often in life? Does it not make us feel good when one uses kind and pure words, but bad when his words are filthy and ungodly? So you see just from your own experience the importance of keeping your words pure and wholesome.
(Continued on page 2).
