The other day at The Lasting Supper, someone posted an “f-you” post, inviting people to vent and rant without fear. Well, needless to say, it was one of our most commented on posts! It was refreshing, funny, and poignant all at once! What an amazing group!

Swearing, I argue, is a safe way to start experimenting with our freedom and independence, mainly because no one gets hurt. And if you believe in God and Hell, I don’t think too many people will think you’re going to Hell for swearing. They might think it is inappropriate, immature, and needless, but they shouldn’t think it is sinful and punishable by eternal hellfire.

I think I can safely say that almost all the people I know who’ve gone through or are going through deconstruction have employed the f-word, and have learned how to use it effectively. Most of us agree: there’s no other word like it that expresses so much so well.

Have you seen my video on the 5 stages of deconstruction? You might find it helpful. CLICK HERE TO WATCH IT! If you’ve gone through deconstruction or are in the middle of it, you know exactly how difficult it can be. You also probably know how useful the f-word becomes during these stressful times.

At The Lasting Supper, we have managed to create an incredibly safe space to deconstruct, to change your beliefs, to lose or morph your faith, to make dramatic alterations to your life with meaningful support, and to be whoever you are with whatever you think. It’s incredible. I’m very proud of it because I am watching people, including myself, experience liberation as well as achieve a very healthy, robust, and joyful life of peace.

So I unabashedly invite you to join us at The Lasting Supper, where you can help yourself!

    The best use of the F word I’ve ever heard was when I stopped to help a man who’s car had broken down. He called his son to ask for some help: “It’s the car. The fucking fucker’s fucking fucked”. Clever use of language I thought.

  3. And, practicing safe “fuck!”s is much easier than practicing safe fucking… if you feel the need to test some boundaries!

    This is retarded…ooops!!! I can say F but I can’t say retarded!!! Guess we aren’t as free as we think. And why not?? It’s offensive and demeaning…but so is the F word. I am confused. Maybe we should just let our speech glorify Jesus.

    Somehow I missed this post David. I fucking love it. As you know…I have found that employing this powerful literary tool can reveal blind fundamentalism quicker than any amount of speech, censured to meet someone’s arbitrary version of “glorifying Jesus”, ever could.

  6. i’m surprised you missed this one Gary

    LOL – Yeah no shit!

    Oh and Brian…I would love to know how exactly my use of the word fuck is “damaging”.

    Is self-control an enemy to freedom? Because I can use cuss words, but I choose not to because I believe that is what God desires out of every relationship with Him. And as crazy as that might sound, I can actually back it up with scripture as well.
