“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 vain…” (Deut. 5:11).
God’s name is not like the name of any other and must be reverenced based solely upon the knowledge and understanding of Who He is. He is Sacred and Holy and must be treated as such. He is not common and profane and must not be treated as such. He must never be placed in comparison with anything or anyone else because He is the High and Lofty God and is set apart, separate and exalted above all others. He is sovereign and absolute. He is infinite and omnipotent. The list proclaiming His greatness goes on without end and can never be completely exhaustive. If and when any of us are able to ascribe such greatness to another being, then God will cease to be God alone. Since we know this will NEVER take place, we must honor and reverence God and all of His attributes in the manner He deserves to be respected.
