“Misusing the names of Deity is a sin.” – For the Strength of Youth
Today and until July 12, I, ____________________, will always use the names of Deity* with reverence and respect.
*Deity: The creator and supreme being (in a monotheistic religion such as Christianity).
“Of course, the most offensive language is that which defames Deity. Vainly using the names of our Father in Heaven and our Savior is a sin of great proportion (seeEx. 20:7). Certainly the Lord is offended when we denigrate his name.
“Instead, we are told to praise God and to pray to him. Prayer is the most beautiful form of communication. The exact opposite of profanity, it, too, reveals your innermost being. As the hymn says, prayer expresses the “soul’s sincere desire” (see Hymns, 1985, number 145).” – Profanity by Robert K. Dellenbach, emphasis added
