When that is filtered through a Christian worldview there can only be one assessment- it is a lie. Words are very powerful. The worlds were created at the speaking of a word. Satan will finally be destroyed at the speaking of a word. Christian witness, Christian homes and marriages, Christian friendships, and Christian churches can all be destroyed as well by the speaking of our words.
Let us heed the words of John Calvin,
I consider looseness with words no less of a defect than looseness of the bowels.
