Jesus!—Geez or Gee Whiz
The Lord’s name in condemnation—Dog gone it or goldarnit
Some people think it is a virtue to soften words of sin. It sort of cleans up the dirt. It does not succeed; it only has the appearance of clean without being clean. Why not? God cleanses that which is confessed as sin. Because we have cleaned up the word the sin is not confessed and therefore not forgiven.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
