Other questions about "Offense"

Q: please have no offense when I aks these question. does this sound natural?
A: "I hope no one would be offended when I ask these questions."
"I hope you won't be offended when I ask you these questions."
Q: "That even a little offense hurts and injures you means from head to toe there is nothing sound in you."

(It's a religious expression. People are easily hurt and distressed even when someone says a little annoying word. It means their hearts/souls are weak.

And it's also from the Bible:
From the sole of the foot even to the head There is nothing sound in it, Only bruises, welts and raw wounds, Not pressed out or bandaged, Nor softened with oil.) does this sound natural?
A: ​‎"That even a little offense hurts and injures you means from head to toe there is nothing sound in you."
This sounds either very poetic or a bit confusing (because poetry can be a bit confusing). The Bible sometimes uses older English grammar that is not used in typical, everyday speech. How about saying, “That you take offense at little things means that there is nothing good in you from head to toe.” Even still, starting a sentence with “That,” is often avoided because it sounds incomplete. “That” is often used in the middle of sentences. Also, “sound,” can mean many things, so you might want to say “good” instead so the listener can get what you are saying without thinking too much. You can say, “I can tell you are awful because you take offense at every little thing. There is nothing good in you from head to toe.”
Q: "I mean no offense but don't tell me you can do it because It's definitely over your control." does this sound natural?
A: No. Fine means it works. It's absolutely right.

Q: No offense. Why there is so many " shit " used in phrases 😂😂, is it impolite or just casual ( or humourous )?
p.s. Actually I wonder if it's acceptable to use it properly👏 ( humour☺ but not bad manner😖 ) I'd appreciate it If you could offer some examples😝.
A: You're welcome. I don't think the question is especially controversial or objectionable: pretty much all questions are good, in my opinion. And it can be used unobjectionably in some situations. It's just that it's hard to get a good cultural feel for when. You could look through http://reallifeglobal.com/how-to-use-word-shit/ for some suggestions. But usually, alternatives are safer. Instead of "get your shit together," "get your act together" works. Instead of "full of shit" (which is not especially offensive, since it would be said in pretty informal contexts), "full of it" works as well. And so on. But a little exploration can give you a feel, maybe.
