“Let’s Go Brandon!” has become a popular rallying cry among the political right. How did a euphemism for an obscene phrase directed specifically at President Biden come to be seen as acceptable speech among Christians? Is it because Donald Trump’s love of coarse language had such a big impact on our culture and our standards or do Americans just love crude discourse? For those who care about these things, is there an objective standard for how Christians should speak?
In this episode, we’ll discuss idle words, coarse talk, obscene language, and how God’s word lays out clear principles for thinking about our words and how we should show honor to those who are in authority.
