THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: It seems that not only are music and films and television and art degrading in quality, but also our language is degrading. It is not uncommon to watch young, conservative commentators on the internet decrying the decline of culture with vulgar language. They, seemingly, are unaware of the contradiction they present. Just as norms of culture are important and freedom of speech is no license for the disgusting things we then see purported to be art, so is the maintaining of our language standards important. Vulgarity is not cool and never was. God’s word is very clear on the subject of speech. Ephesians 4:29 tells us not to let corrupt words proceed from our mouths. The word corrupt, there, means “putrid like rotten fruit”, (RWP). That is what vulgar language is. Colossians 3:8 tells us to be rid of such language. A Christian cannot practice the use of such language, nor enjoy hearing it. Sadly, the extent of its use makes it hard to escape. Remember, though, that we will be judged by what we say, Matthew 12:36-37.
If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me. One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18. If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me. Sincerely, Scott Long email@example.com
