“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.” (Deut 5:11)
The most common expletive in society is the name of the One who created all society.
Think about that for a second.
What if your name was used as a cuss word? What if everyone on the planet said your name whenever something bad happened or every time they wanted to sound shocking or just as a filler for conversation when they didn’t have anything better to say. It would hurt. A LOT.
God’s name is holy. It represents Him. Words matter and ideas have power. It is a satanic plan that has us blaspheming His name. ‘OMG’ isn’t cute or funny – it is irreverent and sinful. “Oh my, God!” should be exclaimed as we fall to our knees in adoration, not as we laugh at the latest YouTube shock video.
May God forgive us our sinful words, and may His people circumcise their lips once more in honor of Him that made and died for them.
