YOU BETTER NOT

Today famous names have value, and what is known as endorsements are worth a lot of money to people who are popular.

Sports figures are in the forefront of these money makers. The loss of stature of these people can cost them multi-million dollar contracts because of morals clauses. Being accused of rape or being with prostitutes like Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods are examples of this.

When Pete Rose places his name on a baseball cap it increases the cap’s value many times. Signing a contract as a coach or a player makes the proposal a legal document. Anyone using a name without permission is a violation of law, and has repercussions and a basis for punishment.

In Exodus 20:7 GOD made a statement concerning HIS name;

Bible in Basic English
You are not to make use of the name of the Lord your God for an evil purpose; whoever takes the Lord's name on his lips for an evil purpose will be judged a sinner by the Lord.

And World English Bible
"You shall not take the name of Yahweh your God in vain, for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain. GOD’S name is sacred and as such must not be used for any other purpose “or else.”

GOD will not endorse the cursing of anything or anybody, and when they invoke his name while cursing they become guilty and must pay.  GOD is the judge that passes down judgment concerning the what, and when of it. In any case the guilty must  pay the penalty.

One of the most irritating things a parent has to endure is back talk or sass from their children. The thought sometimes occurs “I wish you had never been born.”  But then we move on, and don’t remove them, for love kicks in until the next time.  Even so there are some things that are absolutely forbidden and will not be tolerated.

I believe that GOD takes the same attitude concerning HIS name. 

HE will not tolerate the defaming HIS name in cursing.

There is a proper use of HIS name in prayer, petition, worship and praise but never is it to be used in vain for that is an attempt to defile it.

How does GOD feel when one of HIS children misuses His name? Think about it! HE has spoken. Http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5-6gwssX0Y
