I listened to a stump speech of a popular female “conservative” endorse a popular “conservative” presidential candidate.
(Let me just say, first, I like presidential election season. I really do enjoy it.)
Is there anyone who filters their language anymore? Sure, one might expect hyper-pumped emotionalism from a half-time locker room, but is it appropriate for a women (or man) in a political speech to talk about kicking your enemy’s ______? Or using human anatomy descriptors as appropriate? And then for that one speaking like that to be lauded as an evangelical Christian.
intermission: I’m not saying potty mouth politicians are a new thing, or the qualifier of being or not being a Christian, I’m just saying… “Who even blushes anymore?”
Back on topic; This is really less about a political stump speech and more about a Christian’s duty in the public square.
- pastors, you must be careful about this.
- older men, you must exercise caution of what ‘unwholesome’ things you like and share.
- older women, you must use discretion when you like another’s photo, posts, quotes.
- younger (male and female), your generation has become un-shocked by nearly anything. You don’t have to be like that.
Stop letting unwholesome words [posts] define you. You don’t have to drop an f-bomb to emphasis your point. Why not use your words that will “give grace to those who hear”?
