  • Yes it is. According to the 10 commandments listed in the OT it is sinful. I have never really known what exactly taking His name in vain is though.

  • Yes, the Old Testament identifies several ways in which the Third Commandment can be violated. The most obvious is to misuse God's name in pronouncing it incorrectly, twisting it and made fun of. Leviticus 19:12 "You shall not swear by My name falsely, and so profane the name of your God: I Am the LORD."

  • The Lord required blood sacrifice. Who's the vain one? Lev 4:1–5:13; 6:24–30; 12:6–8

  • Blaspheming the Lord God is a sin of disobedience towards Him. To take His name in vain is not good but it is not an unforgivable sin.

  • A lot can be inferred in the understanding of this Commandment - beginning with which one it is. In just the few minutes I've spent researching this, I've seen it as the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. Beyond that, one needs to understand what each part of it says. The main idea that I took from it is in the part that reads, "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain". This is significant in that the word "LORD" is always capitalized - which refers to Him as the Hebrew name of "Jehovah". If the statement says "thou shalt not take the ** name ** in vain", does it mean the actual use of the name "Jehovah"? "LORD" is a pronoun while "Jehovah" is a noun - two different forms of speech entirely. Or does the transgression come from using the word "God" (another pronoun) in vain? I would think that "taking the name of the LORD" would mean the name "Jehovah" (the noun) and not either of the pronouns. If this is correct, it doesn't give someone license to cuss like a sailor - there's still such a thing as "respect".
