									Subject: Benefits of Swearing?                        Date: 07.05.11
Speaker: Dr. Jesse Middendorf


Human behaviorists divided a group of young people into categories: those who swore
occasionally and those who swore regularly. Then, they asked the subjects to hold their
hands underneath ice cold water and use swear words. Supposedly, those who swore
regularly could endure the pain of the ice water longer than those who swore
periodically. The results were rather dubious, given the circumstances and the mindset
of the researchers.


Swearing is a habit. And habits can be broken. The power of God’s Holy Spirit in the life
surrendered fully to Him can deliver that life from habits, swearing or otherwise. The
Bible advises that if we walk in the power of the Spirit, we don’t have to fulfill the desires
of the flesh.
