We live in blasphemous times, when God’s holy name isn’t honored and is even used as a cuss word. Biblical scribes so honored His name that they would wash their hands before and after they wrote it, yet today it is so despised. Sinners try to justify blasphemy by saying that God’s name is “just a word” that they don’t even think about when they use. Their own mouth condemns them. His precious name rolls off their sinful tongue without a second thought, as though He didn’t exist. By giving it no honor, they certainly use His name “in vain.” Humanity may take the sin of blasphemy lightly, but God doesn’t. He gives it the death sentence.
