Why is God’s name, or His Son’s name used as a curse word?  I’m confessing again.  When I was a soldier His name was the ONE I chose to use.  GOD FORGIVE ME!!  I’m glad God does forgive our sins—IF we ask and confess.  I begged Him to forgive my transgressions.  God’s name is HOLY!!  WHAT’S ONE OF GOD’S COMMANDMENTS?!?!  No wonder this world is in such darkness and wickedness.  We’re telling God to DAMN this or that, or some other explicative!!  GOD DOESN’T NEED A DAM!!!  Exodus 20:7 7Thou 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.

The major and only reason God’s, and Jesus names are used is:  HE’S THE REAL GOD, period!!  He’s YAHWEH—the I AM!!  The only God who created us in his image—YET WE CURSE HIS NAME, OR ONE ANOTHER.  It’s a personal CHOICE.

Can a SAVED person use God’s name in vain?  James 3:8-11 8But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.11Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?  I’m not the Judge.  I’m not worthy to touch the hem of his garment.  As Christians we’re merely tree and/or fruit inspectors—not the Judge.  If it was up to some—I’d have been (and probably am) found guilty by their judgement.  I’m so glad that Jesus Christ is the righteous judge.  2 Timothy 4:8 8Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.  James 5:9 9Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.

Thank the Lord for His Son’s grace and LOVE!!  His DIVINE love can and will separate us from our sins and our words—IF we’ll let him FORGIVE US OUR SINS and let HIM mold us in HIS image.  We can’t do it by, or of ourselves!!  Matthew 12:31-37 31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. 33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. 34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.  Matthew 23:26-28 26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

Christians, Family, Friends, Brothers and Sisters, it takes an effort to control the tongue.  It’s like going to church, or walking with Christ.  I/you/we must decide, “Who do we serve”?  Matthew 4:19 19And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.  1 Corinthians 11:1 1Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

Please don’t be a poser, or pretender of being a member of the family of God.  Use God’s and Jesus’s name in reverence and not cursing.  Matthew 7:15-20 15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.  Luke 6:43 43For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

For the love of God, let HIS LIGHT shine through you!!  Pslam 119:102-106 102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me. 103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! 104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. 105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. 106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.

Finally:  Please don’t tell/ask God to condemn/DAMN the world.  It’s bad enough without your/my/our help.

PLEASE GOD, SAVE US FROM OURSELVES!!!  Are you washed in THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST??  Revelation 1:5 5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.

Just COME AS YOU ARE. God Bless!!! Sincerely, Reggie Kelley.
