He did pulpit supply for David Wakeland’s church in Houston back in 1993 (he and David had different worship times and would cover for each other). And he preached the “Third Word” sermon. It was a big influence on me, really made an impression.

The topic of “bad words” comes up regularly in our house, partly because we made lots of words “bad” from the get go. But lately, we’ve talked about what the real meaning of the commandment. Mark has preached on this, and Jeff just did this past Sunday. I think the idea is that maturity in the faith equals bearing the name of Christ well.

Lest there be any confusion, in this post I had in mind strong language that was not of the “curse God and die” variety.
