Ooh my G-O-D

It seems to be fashionable to use the name of God or Jesus as a cuss word. Everywhere on TV someone always say “ooh my G-O-D” or “Jesus Christ”, as an expression of disgust, shock or any kind of displeasure. This misuse of God’s name doesn’t only apply to English speaking people, but people of all languages do the same. It is as if there is some propaganda designed specifically to dishonour God’s name and His son Jesus Christ, because nobody ever uses Mohammed’s name as a cuss word, or even Buddha.

Fact is, misusing God’s name is blasphemy, and it is a total disregard for God. The third commandment says “you shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not anyone guiltless who misuses his name” (Exodus 20:7). Using the above phrases to show disgust is breaking the third commandment, and the bible says God will punish each and every one who says those phrases. It may seem fashionable to say these things, but they will one day come back to haunt us. Jesus warned people of his day and said “but I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgement for every careless word they have spoken” (Matthew 12:36).

Do you misuse God’s name, by using it as cuss word or to show disgust? What are your reasons for misusing His name? Is it because you hate Him so much that you are willing to trample upon His holy name? The bible says Jesus inherited a superior name (see Hebrews 1:4), and God gave Him a “name that is above every name” (Philippians 2:9), yet it’s the same name that you use to show disgust. Muslims issue a fatwa against anybody who misuses the name of Muhammad, perhaps that’s the reason people don’t misuse his name, because they know they’ll be signing their death certificate. But God says He “will not hold guiltless who misuses his name”. So you can be sure that every time you misuses God’s name you will be held accountable for doing so.

Reality is Jesus is the most hated name in the world, read here.
