There's this shirt going around that says, "I love Jesus, but I cuss a little"...cute shirt right? Well, I thought so. But for me, it wasn't "truth enough" for "D.New G" (that's my old rapper name...#dontjudgeme) to rock it! I mean let's be honest, I cuss! I cuss and I can cuss gooood!! I was raised by some good cussers. I've heard my grandma spew a few in a day or two, so hearing those "tough love" words early on in my childhood didn't necessarily mean - "a harsh way to talk to people", but more so "words of endearment". Call me crazy, but it was.
For me, cussing is using passionate words to express yourself or REALLY get your point across. Like an exclamation point to the 10th degree (see pic below)
But seriously, I've read the scriptures, I've prayed the prayers and I don't believe they are NICE words, but I do think they're sometimes "okay" - only if you're grown and paying your own bills, not in front of my momma or my elders, try not too in front of the kids, and do it in moderation plus saying them with a joke is okay too. I also think any word that's used in the Bible is definitely approved, certified, and "Grade A" stamped okay...right? Heck, I even went into spiritual warfare telling the devil, "to get his a** out of my life and go back to hell where he belong!!"...I sure did AND I'll do it again! Was I wrong?...hmph, maybe so - I don't know, but in the meantime I created this shirt to outwardly show my desperation for prayer and still be fashionably cute while rocking it!
It's kind of like how Kanye West wrote Jesus Walks and said, "Then I hope this takes away from my sins..." WELL, I hope it works for me too and wearing this shirt takes away from my sins with cussing plus I've said it before in other videos and posts that our shirts are testimonies...sooo by faith we'll stop cussing in no time! But I need you to rock it too!! Let's stand in solidarity, proclaiming to the world - "Yes, we cuss and we like it and we maybe kind of don't like it - so pray for us! Yaahh go head and just pray for us! You do that!" It'll totally be like we're cheering for Jesus...I mean can't you just see heaven being bombarded with prayers of the righteous - now YOU know you know plenty of niggas that cuss! Oh shoot - can I say "nigga"?...see, just pray for me...#SHIRTSTORY
