Under Gods Command

Deuteronomy 5:11 (Using the Lord’s name in Vain) God D*m, Jesus F**king Christ and so on.

5:11 You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not leave him UNPUNISHED who takes His name in vain.

We are familiar with the sin to be avoided in this command, that we should not take the name of the Lord in vain by saying it in an empty or worthless way. But there is also a good work that is commanded: to use God’s name to praise him and ascribe to his glory. This is the opposite of misusing his name. While you might be able to keep yourself from swearing, how have you found time to praise God and honor his name.

Let’s Bring it Home: I hear people and family members always damming God, saying Jesus f**king Christ, or just Jesus Christ with no meaning of who God is. Or this one, Oh my f**king God. Read the last part of that Scripture, UNPUNISHED. Think about it. I have seen so many fights for people talking wrong about Mothers, Fathers, and Children. Do you think God will let you get away using his Son’s name in vain, and God is our Father for the ones who are saved.

You don’t talk wrong about family members, and God is our Father. It irks me when I hear someone say these things about my family and the family of God because of the relationship I now have with Crist. I have been guilty that I, at times, don’t even say anything when I hear someone use God and Jesus’ name in vain. Today I am taking a new stand. I will mention it once, and if you choose to continue, that is up to you.
