Topic: Laws of God
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (Exodus 20:7 KJV)
How many of us use God’s name as curse word or excuse word? If you haven’t use His name as curse word, then you may try to hide yourself from God and people who you love. Of course, we are all guilty to use God’s name in vain. There is no one who haven’t use His name in wrong term.
Nowadays, we see some pastors use God’s name in wrong way. God doesn’t excuse anyone, especially church leaders, to use His name as blasphemy. We are representatives for God and not for the world. I know there are many people use God’s name as curse. In fact, there are books and movies contain blasphemy, such as Henry Potter, Chronicle of Narnia, Speed, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jurassic Park, and many more.
If we’d think we are not hurting anyone to use God’s name in vain, we are actually hurting God. It’s easy to misuse God’s name if we are not think carefully before we’d spill out of our mouths. We also would need to honor God by not using His name in vain or as blasphemy.
