Over the past week I have been Listening to the Speech that was around me and I can tell you it is quite offensive at times
foul language is becoming more of a norm, more and more people use curse words as everyday words and you know what your free to do it, but let me tell you scripture is clear as to what it produces
nothing like your stomach turning as you hear someone drop F bombs and you just cringe every time you hear it
