This really needs to be on Biblical Hermeneutics.

comment Is there any Biblical argument against using “cuss words”?
@Eric The f-word and the s-word you mention definitely have unwholesome definitions and associations.

Which words are you thinking of that are considered taboo but "not typically used with any unwholesome meaning"?

comment What are the “correct” steps for a layman to be a Christian?
That's a reasonable concern. It's not a path I would recommend, to be honest.

comment What are the “correct” steps for a layman to be a Christian?
I'm quoting the question here: " is assuming God(s) exist(s) the first step?"

comment What are the “correct” steps for a layman to be a Christian?
No it's not. The Hebrews passage says that faith is necessary to get to the end of your journey. That doesn't mean it has to come first. (And faith is not just "belief in God" anyway).

comment Does the Bible advocate ethical egoism?
I think the Wikipedia entry sums it up nicely "ethical egoism (also called egoism)". If your sole goal is to do what is in your own interests, the 'ethical' part is really irrelevant.

comment What Bible versions can be used for free applications?
As an aside, please try not to encourage people to take in the Bible as individual verses, isolated from their context. That's not how the Bible is helpful.

comment How literally do you take and universally apply what Jesus said?
I don't think you mean "how literally". Most Christians take it very literally, in the sense that it absolutely happened as described (or something pretty close to it). I suspect you mean "do people apply the command to themselves".
