Russia puts the United States to shame with anti-swearing edict
Vladimir Putin has passed a law in Russia against swearing. I love it. Our country can’t talk without vulgarity anywhere. The Bible, which hardly anyone reads or even cares about, speaks on this subject and makes a very valid point that I have pointed out in a previous letter and will once again reveal at the end of this one.
I will once again give the comment about the mind that swears. “Swearing is the feeble attempt of the uneducated mind to express itself.” Think about this the next time you begin to speak anywhere. Our youth, with the impact of the entertainment industry, have accepted vulgarity as a way of life that is not only accepted by them but also by their parents, who also practice such. The real reason behind this state of mind is the lack of God in this country.
We have become a nation of no morality in any fashion. Anything goes. If it feels good, do it. If you don’t like it, kill it. If you can get away with it, do it. Atheism has taken over in this country, along with its idea of the false-to-the-core theory of evolution as is being taught in our schools as a fact and not a theory.
To end, as promised, take your Bible, if you have one, and look at Matthew 26 verses 69-75. The apostle Peter denied Jesus Christ three times and the last time he proved he was not a follower of him by “swearing” (verse 74). So, if you want to prove you are not a follower of Christ, and just another atheist, keep up your vulgarity. You won’t pay a price here, as in Russia, but wait awhile, you will.
