Things That Are Toxic (Lesson 1)

red-skull-crossbones-clipartI will be doing a Bible study lesson on Things That Are Toxic. I feel that God is leading all of us into a deeper study of things in our lives that we need to keep out so that we can have a closer walk with Him. So this week I am doing toxic things.

What Does Toxic Mean
Our study is about things that are toxic. So exactly what does toxic mean when defining a person? “Toxic” and similar words came from : Greek τοξο= “bow (weapon)” via ” poisoned arrow” which comes from ” poison” in scientific language, as the usual Classical Greek word

 (‘ιον) for “poison ” would transcribe as “io-“,  which is not distinctive enough. In some biological names, “toxo-” still means “bow”, as in Toxiodon= “bow toothed” from the shape.

Late Latin toxicus, from Latin toxicum poision

tox·ic [tok-sik] :

 adjective:1. of, pertaining to, affected with, or caused by a toxin or poison: a toxic condition. 2. acting as or having the effect of a poison; poisonous: a toxic drug.3. deadly: causing serious harm or death. 4. exhibiting symptoms of infection or toxicities 5. extremely harsh, malicious, or harmful

Synonyms: baneful, deadly, harmful, lethal, mephitic, noxious, pernicious, pestilential, poison, septic, toxicant, venomous, virulent.

Now that we have an understanding of what toxic is Let’s go and see what toxic things we need to keep out of our lives.
