4 Things Christians Should Stop Saying

You are set aside from the rest of the world as a Christian. There are some things we say that are unsuitable. The fact that the rest of the world says it shouldn't compel you to say it. Some of us say these things without realizing how incorrect they are. The following are the five items.

1. Oh, My God (OMG) or God forbid: In our day-to-day talks, this language has become the norm. During a chat, the females can say it up to ten times. The guys are just as guilty of saying it. Here's why a Christian shouldn't use such language.

The Bible warns us not to misuse God's name in Exodus 20:7. This is clearly stated in the Bible. Let me paraphrase what the Bible says about this. "You shall not take the Lord your God's name in vain [that is, lightly or frivolously, in false statements or profanely]; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain," it says.

2. Stop wishing good luck to yourself or others: You should not rely on luck as a Christian, but rather on God's favor and promises. Luck isn't always on your side. God's promises, on the other hand, are certain. All you have to do is follow the terms of his pledges.

The Bible tells us not to be concerned about our daily bread in Matthew 6:31-33. God himself has stated that he is aware of our requirements. He did, however, impose one condition. The Bible says in verse 33 that we should seek first the kingdom of God and its righteousness.

3. Stop saying things like "I promise" and "I'd pray for you": If you know you don't have the self-discipline to maintain your commitments, it's not a good idea to make them. "Let our Yes be Yes and our No be No," the Bible says in Matthew 5:37. We make promises to individuals that we will pray for them, but we don't always follow through.

Someone who is a good Christian should be able to be trusted. The Bible teaches in Ecclesiastes 5:5-6 that it is better for us not to swear than to vow and then break it.

4. Stop using the "F" word and other derogatory terms: In his speeches, a Christian should not be careless. We should not use any filthy or polluted language throughout our interactions, according to Ephesians 4:29. You can't pronounce God's sacred words with the same tongue that used to spout profanity. It's just incorrect.

I'd like you to share what you've learned from this post with your friends and family.
