Ephesians 4:29- Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. . Idk what you'd neccassarily (sp) call a Christian that cusses, but I believe it is important to try and use better words to express how we feel, and try and use kinder words. Everyone I think has said a not-so-good word at one point or another, but if you do this on a regular basis, I think you might want to try and widen your vocabulary just a tad. A clean mouth, that speaks kind and eloquent words to others, is evident of a good and wholesome mind.

Doesn't really mean anything. Although some link swearing (meaning crude words other than improperly using "God") to sinning because of one of the Ten Commandments. "Thou shall not take thy Lord your God's name in vain."
The church teaches us that to cuss, it is an act of degradation of our community as cussing is a form of verbal abuse, as considered by society.
But I think otherwise. Cussing has became an involuntary act of communication. People swear, and use it as a form of saying casual stuff. Sooner or later, cussing is bound to become less taboo in society.
Anyone who makes no mistakes in speech is perfect, able to keep the whole body in check with a bridle. The tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great exploits. And the tongue is a fire. The tongue is placed among our members as a world of iniquity; it stains the whole body, sets on fire the cycle of nature, & it itself set on fire by Gehenna. All creatures can be tamed by man, but no-one can tame the tongue-- a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless the Lord & Father, & with it we curse those who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing & cursing. Read the book of James. You will find what you seek.
