USING GOD'S NAME IN VAIN

Recommended Posts

Lest I steal and take the Lords name in vain .        It aint just words , its our actions TOO .      I know most folks will say , saying the G D word istaking his name invain .

BUT IT aint the only way .    And on that note , let no man receive the grace of GOD in vain either .

its tacky.  saying The Lords name at the end of every other sentence or saying it as an expression where another word could be used, normally a four letter word.  its also ironic.  the very name of the One that could set them free is constantly on their tongue.

Is it okay to use God's name as an expression?? I mean, many Christians would say it is more better than actually use the devil's name as an expression..

by expression I mean saying the name "Jesus Christ" instead of a four letter cuss word.  so no, its not ok.  it is using Gods name in vain.  just saying it to have something coming out of their mouth.  Jesus Christ is The King of Kings.  we should honor Him and His name. 

How would it make you feel if i started a fad where every time something bad happened or someone said something hard to believe i said... SisterCess.  that would be pretty disrespectful and get old pretty fast... wouldnt you think?

You're right.. I told my friend about it but she's against it because someone from the church where she once attended said it is okay than saying "yawa" which means satan in english.. she dont really understand and still continue doing it.. 😣

you should tell your friend the bible also says not to put your trust in man... read the bible for yourself because its *YOUR* eternal soul.  would it be wise to trust a foulable imperfect person instead of reading Gods word and applying to your life, because one day we will give account for every action and word spoken.  one day we will be judged.  And God does not make compromise, he says to do ALL He commands. 

edit:  I will stand in agreement with you in prayer for your friend.  lets ask God to show your friend the truth.

To answer the o.p. question. Its not good to take the Lords name in vain. 

Psalm 118 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 118

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.

Let Israel say:
    “His love endures forever.”
Let the house of Aaron say:
    “His love endures forever.”
Let those who fear the Lord say:
    “His love endures forever.”

When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord;
    he brought me into a spacious place.
The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.
    What can mere mortals do to me?
The Lord is with me; he is my helper.
    I look in triumph on my enemies.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord
    than to trust in humans.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
    than to trust in princes.
10 All the nations surrounded me,
    but in the name of the Lord I cut them down.
11 They surrounded me on every side,
    but in the name of the Lord I cut them down.
12 They swarmed around me like bees,
    but they were consumed as quickly as burning thorns;
    in the name of the Lord I cut them down.
13 I was pushed back and about to fall,
    but the Lord helped me.

14 The Lord is my strength and my defense[a];
    he has become my salvation.

15 Shouts of joy and victory
    resound in the tents of the righteous:
“The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!
16     The Lord’s right hand is lifted high;
    the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!”
17 I will not die but live,
    and will proclaim what the Lord has done.
18 The Lord has chastened me severely,
    but he has not given me over to death.
19 Open for me the gates of the righteous;
    I will enter and give thanks to the Lord.
20 This is the gate of the Lord
    through which the righteous may enter.
21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me;
    you have become my salvation.

22 The stone the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone;
23 the Lord has done this,
    and it is marvelous in our eyes.
24 The Lord has done it this very day;
    let us rejoice today and be glad.

25 Lord, save us!
    Lord, grant us success!

26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
    From the house of the Lord we bless you.[b]
27 The Lord is God,
    and he has made his light shine on us.
With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession
    up
[c] to the horns of the altar.

28 You are my God, and I will praise you;
    you are my God, and I will exalt you.

29 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.

Blessed be the Name

Hello! 

I wanna know your thoughts about using God's Name in vain.. care to share?? 😊😊😊

When you swear an oath by God, when you consider the greatness of God's name, do not do so lightly. Don't overcomplicate things:

1) Make sure you've trusted Jesus, who is perfect, to pay for your imperfection via His cross and resurrection.

2) Receive freedom from Jesus Christ.
