"Thou shalt not take the name
of the LORD thy God in vain"
As I watch TV and listen to nearly every one, especially black people and those calling themselves Christians continually use God and Jesus in their conversations no matter what they are talking about. I find this habit has gotten worse and worse over time from bad teachings from pastors. So, I want to focus just a little bit on a very bad habit even God don't like. It read in the bible like this.
"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)
Another reading from Exodus 20:7 (NIV) Bible read lke this.....
“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name."
New International Version (NIV)....
Somewhere down the line this piece of serious information has been over looked by billions of practicing Christians. This is what God said to not do. To not take his name in vain Yet, we find Church people doing it every day and all day long as though God was not the God of all wisdom but just a God in name. A name told about but received as a low class God that changes as time move further into the future.
People think that because we change God change along with us. They think they do not have to abide by things he once said and was against not realizing that God words will never change to suite our situation or need.
Those calling themselves Christians use the name of God with out thought. We can give him praise in a proper way and setting but not with every breath for any thing. Meaning, people use the name of God or Jesus in vain in stupid and derogatory situations.
For example, if some one or a dog act weird and ridiculous, people will say God help this silly person or dog. Knowing it want happen but love saying it out of a joke or just stupidity.
People even say..... continue....
