What Makes Bad Language Bad?

I posted on vulgarities a couple of years ago. This video of Paul Tripp on what makes language bad is from the Desiring God 2008 National Conference. Warning: some bad language used for demonstration purposes.



Paul Tripp articulates what we should understand of the Law of Moses and the Law of Grace. Following the letter of the law is mere moralism. It's good to be moral people. But true righteousness is found in the willingness to refrain from what is allowed in order to glorify God before others. It is the law found in our hearts where we submit to the needs of others and desire to be pleasing to God.
