More on Speech

Sharing Options

The apostle Paul took a dim view of dirty talk. In Colossians 3:8 he uses the word aischrologia to prohibit filthy communication. In our previous discussion of this (on Eph. 5:4), we noted that we need to take our directions on this from the robust apostles and not from the prim Victorians. Now where might the line be between speech that one or the other might prohibit? A simple rule that will deal with most of the issues would be this one: avoid all speech that is trying to be dirty in the way prohibited, speech that depends on and needs the shock effect.
