Though this passage is more about sociopolitical discernment than friendship, it is a good reminder of all the ways we should love those who love us …..
We aren’t telling anyone whether they can or cannot, should or should not, swear. But you should know how/why we use “bad words” in our game and Card Talks, before you let “unwholesome talk come out your mouth” about us.
(* An addendum to our Theology of Swearing)
Dear reader: We believe you should not have sex with your mom/dad, stepmom/dad, sister/brother, half-sister/brother, stepsister/ brother, granddaughter/son, aunts/uncles, daughters/sons-in-law, sisters/brothers-in-law, and that it is a pretty safe bet that you should avoid poly-amorous relationships with members of the same family, or your own family. Apparently, so does the Bible.
