One of my struggles revolves around vulgarity. What does the Bible and or Catholic Church say about this? I understand one is not to take the Lord’s name in vain (as per the Commandment), but does this only refer to certain vulgarity invoking God’s name, or does it apply to all vulgarity?
I don’t usually swear at home, it’s more so at work, and I think that’s a result of being around people who swear quite often, and just generally being under a lot of pressure and stress, with a tendency to lose my cool.
Does anyone else have an issue with this? How do you go about training yourself to not let your tongue slip? Is it a matter of learning to substitute words for similar words (e.g. darn, heck, shoot, etc?)
When I let my tongue slip, it’s an embarrasement to God, I know, and makes me look like a hypocrite, as it’s anything but Christ-like. :rolleyes:
