Reader just when you think you've heard it all, here comes a snippet of a sermon that has many churchgoers scratching their heads. Below is a video of the Pastor Jeffery Johnson of Indy that preached “Bring Your A**to Jesus” a week ago for Palm Sunday that has gone viral.
It's highly likely that Young Jeffery came from either Matthew 21, Mark 11, or Luke 19 as all of these tell the story where Jesus sent for a donkey (or ass) which had never been ridden. Most churchgoers have already heard a variation of this sermon... and using the same version of the Bible. You know, the one in which "ass," a common term for a donkey is used.
It's being reported that Young Pastor Jeffery has a pretty large church with over 17,000 members and here he is using the word ass 8 times in one 31 second viral clip.
My question is does any type of cussing, swearing, "off-color" speech, or profanity from the pulpit bring harm to the cause of Christ? Is cussing, swearing, and profanity a matter of opinion, when it comes to the Christian? Is cussing, swearing, and profanity a sin according to Scripture? While some Christians seems to think it is no matter what society says or accepts why other Christians think not?
