I recently was in a discussion with someone over the idea ofplaying games that contain cussing. Theyof course brought up Psalm 101:3 astheir biblical support for why itâ€™s wrong to hear cussing. However, that scripture says nothing aboutHEARINGâ€¦only visually seeing un-pure things specifically, this scripture isused often for musical content as well when it clearly has nothing to do withaudible things. (unless you want to twist it)
So, I would loveto get into a discussion on if HEARING cussing is truly a sin.
My personal belief and one that is supported in the bible ina few places is that if something feels like a sin or you feel convicted of it,then itâ€™s sin. If it doesnâ€™t bother youor you donâ€™t feel convicted of it then itâ€™s not a sin to you. (this applies to â€œgreyâ€ areas of thebible. Parts that it does not speak on,but can be defined as personal sins that apply to people differently. This is the idea of â€œpersonal sinâ€ Sort of like how some feel convicted not toeat meat. Itâ€™s not sinful to eat meat,but if you feel very wrong about it ten donâ€™t do itâ€¦likewise someone who eatsmeat should refrain from eating meat around you so as not to offend you. This is also referred to as the sin ofomission or commission.
So, please give me your opinions on this issue as I amhighly curious on the various stances.
