The Laws of God – 3 – Do Not Take the LORD’s Name in Vain

Another sin for which we must be forgiven, and for which Jesus Christ gave himself for us is the sin of using his name in a disrespectful and empty way. God is holy and great and therefore our thoughts of him must be pure. When men curse his name, laugh at his name, or pray his name repeatedly and meaninglessly they dishonor the name of God. Claiming to be a Christian, while yet being false and sinful in lifestyle is perhaps the worst way of all to take the name of the Lord in vain. This specific sin and disrespect is in the life of everyone. Have your sins been forgiven?  … The main bible verse is Exodus 20:7.

“You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.”
