MOBILE, ALABAMA - A Christian woman refuses to read the word "hell" in scripture because she doesn't want "any unclean thing to proceed out of her mouth."
Darlene told us that she doesn't want to start "cussing", even if the Bible contains those words in it. I asked Darlene what she does when she reads the word "hell". She immediately became angered, slapped me in the face, and said, "Your mamma should of washed your mouth out with soap."
She then added, "When I come to a verse like Matthew 10:28, I read it like this, "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in 'h-e double hockey sticks'. This is how I get around it."
Darlene is convinced that saying the word hell in any context is never appropriate.
