  1. How true. I need often to repent and count it joy, strange word, when I fall into or from diverse trial and testings.

  2. So anybody using foul language has a heart as foul as a sewer? I don’t think it’s appropriate to confound profanity with being an evil person.

  3. Jesus said so Katie: He said; “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and by our words will will be judged…” Someone said; “The tongue is the dipstick of the heart.”

  4. Right, but how do you know that passage pertains to foul language? THere’s also a difference between using the Lord’s name in vain and swearing- though you didn’t elaborate which she did. Perhaps she curses like a sailor but is a blessing to many people in her life. Letting loose a string of explicatives after a fall is hardly equivalent to being a terrible person. There are certainly people with kind hearts who speak roughly, as well as people who never let even a mild word pass their lips but might be lacking in other ways.

    Did Jesus say “the tounge is the dipstick of the heart”? No. I’ve noticed a pattern of you judging others superficially, your posts are frequently in regards to the “heathens” you encounter in public, judgements based on an interaction of the span of maybe a couple of minutes.

  5. Or- another possibility occurred to me- she could be losing her mental faculties. My great aunt’s vernacular took a drastic change for the worse before she passed away. None of it her fault, as she wasn’t fully there.

  6. That’s something to think about Katie. Read Ephesians 4 and 5 on pure speech. You might also listen to my messages in good and bad swearing. You can search for them my site. Let me know what you think.
