God Condemns Profane Language

God’s word condemns profane language of all types (Eph. 5: 4). Language that blasphemes God and belittles man reveals the corrupt nature of the speaker and must be “put away” (Matt. 15: 20; Col. 3: 8; Jas. 3: 10-12). Such useless language must be replaced with good speech. “Let no corrupt communication (“speech,” dm) proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers” (Eph. 4: 29).
