Dont break the 3rd

Yesterday I had the great privilege to preach at the Summit Church’s Cole Mill Campus. It rocked and I am grateful for the invite there. I preached on the 3rd Commandment from Exodus 20:7, “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for he will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.” the original intent of this command was to prevent people from attaching God’s name to anything that misrepresents who God is.

Because you are created in his image, you therefore bear his name. Because you bear his name, then everything you do is done in the name of God. So anything you do that is not consistent with the character of God involves breaking this commandment.

One of the ways we break this commandment is using God’s name lightly & carelessly. I used this point as an opportunity to have a little fun laughing at Christian sub-culture. specifically t-shirts & church signs. enjoy.
