USING THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN
Christianity Oasis Ministry has provided you with this Using God's Name in Vain Bible study. We will be looking into that and all aspects of the Christian Walk. This SON-derful study will reveal truth to bring forth understanding and peace within.
USING GOD'S NAME IN VAIN
USING THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN
Wondering what this little study is all about? Well, it's
all about the Third Commandment:
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
Sooooooo, what does it mean to take the name of the Lord in vain? It means to using God's name in vain. With VANITY ... It is using the Lord's name in a foul way or for prideful reasons. To take the name of God in vain is to use the Lord's name in vain with levity (lightly/carelessly) or profaneness. It is using the Lord's name (that is to say God, Jesus and/or the Holy
Spirit) without thought, or without respect, as if His name had no substance, value or importance.
people who are using God's name in vain even think of
the Lord when they utter His name in this manner or do they
"use" the most precious name of the Lord in vain mostly for "color"
in their conversation? Wow ... That's an arresting thought is itnot?
When did using the Lord's name in vain begin? Who started
it? Well, as Solomon said:
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that
which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new
thing under the sun.
USING GOD'S NAME IN VAIN ORIGINS
USING THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN PATH TO PAIN
Apparently using God's name in vain started before the Ten Commandments were
written, and it is serious enough of an offense that the
Lord put it in the top Ten.
to give you a little glimpse of how serious it really is,
let's look at the most "popular" phrase people use when they
take the Lord's name in vain. We won't write the phrase
here, but we will give you a definition of the word that
half of the phrase is made up of:
(third-person singular simple present
simple past and past participle
To condemn to hell.
- The official position is that anyone who does this
will be damned for all eternity.
- To put out of favor; to ruin; to label negatively.

damned as a troublemaker.
- To condemn as unfit, harmful, of poor quality,
unsuccessful, invalid, immoral or illegal.
To curse; put a curse upon.

USING GOD'S NAME IN VAIN CONCERN
USING THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN DON'TS AND DON'TS AGAIN
Okay, so what are people who don't want to hear
someone using God's name in vain to do about this ever widening
epidemic of irreverence? Well, actually there are some things you
Whenever you hear anyone ... A friend ... A
relative ... A television show ... A song ... Utter this phrase, say
OUT LOUD with the same enthusiasm that it was used:
"DAMN NOT GOD"
Yes, even when you're watching television,
especially with children, if it is said ... Respond out loud! You
will be setting a great example ... Planting a seed in
Sadly enough, for many people, using the name of
God in vain has become habit. They use it often in front of
nouns. This is the epitome of disrespect. Perhaps if someone
reminded (for many are Christians who are guilty of this) or pointed
out to them that the Lord will not hold them guiltless, it would
plant a good seed ... At the very least, it would display your
compassion for the fate of their soul.
Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse
things, to draw away disciples after them.
There are times when something or someone makes
people SO mad that the phrase comes out of their mouths.
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue
among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth
on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For
every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of
things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But
the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly
poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith
curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of
the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren,
these things ought not so to be.
USING GOD'S NAME IN VAIN WARNING
USING THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN DANGER
Think of how terrible a thing it is to ask God to
damn someone! God doesn't want ANYONE to be damned. In truth ... Using God's name in vain in that manner may have the reverse effect. Feel me?
Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure
in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his
way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will
ye die, O house of Israel?
Let's also look at another curious question. How
is it that on some television stations, they will bleep out the word
"hell" but they will allow the Lord's name to be spoken in vain?
People CAN control what comes out of their mouths
and make a conscious effort to stop using the God's name in vain
... If they want to.
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil
speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind
one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as
God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
Using the Lord's name in vain is definitely
inspired by the enemy, so when you hear someone do it, you can say
"Damn NOT God" and this utterance will thwart the plan that the
enemy wants to grow ever so rapidly. You will plant a seed of
What if you find yourself using God's name in
vain, either in your mind or spoken out loud ... Are you going to
hell? No more than if you tell a lie or steal a Tootsie Roll.
For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one
point, he is guilty of all.
USING GOD'S NAME IN VAIN SUMMARY
USING THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN FINDINGS
Do you feel like a person will go to hell for stealing a Tootsie
Roll? Fortunately our God is a forgiving God, abounding in Grace so
when and if this happens to you, whisper a sincere "God forgive me,"
and set out to try harder not to do it again.
Don't forget ...
Don't be afraid to DEFEND our Lord!
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in
this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son
of man be ashamed, when He cometh in the glory of His Father
with the holy angels.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you,
and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my
sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward
in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before
Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I
confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever
shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father
which is in heaven.
Speak it OUT LOUD ... to yourself, to others, to the world
... Damn NOT God ... Let the words go out
into the universe and may they descend on the speakers
thereof and let TRUTH overcome them and transform their
thoughts, feelings, and life!
