Which 'Messenger' Would You Trust?

Which 'Messenger' Would You Trust?
Marcus Lacewell

Exodus 20:7 
Thou 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.
Exodus 3: 13-14
13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.

Seeing these two scriptures together displays a 'main vein' in the Christian belief.  Have we been misusing this commandment for all these years?  'God' is not a name.  Is the word 'God' bound by a meaning?  Either way, our answer will affect our views on other words and other religions.
The 'main vein,' of Christianity, holds the wonder, of most people.  We have a few words and phrases in our vocabulary that have more than one meaning.  Some meanings, of words, are SEEN as sinful.  While others meanings, of the same words, are not.  So, does meaning constitute a sin or not?  From my understanding, based on conversations with Islamic believers, Islamic believers feel that it does.  Christian believers seem uncommitted to either way.
Besides, Exodus 20 tells of some laws. But, we are no longer bound by laws.
Romans 6:14 
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
John 1:17 
For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
Pay attention to the word 'by.'  Let's put it another way.  If one of your 'good' friends told you, 'It's illegal to go on that property.'  Then, one day, you saw a policeman on the property, so you asked him if it was illegal.  He says, ' It's not illegal, but it's not viewed as 'good'.'  Whom would you trust; your friend or the policeman?  Unlearn.

There are some attention-grabbing closing dates in this article however I don't know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity however I will take hold opinion till I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we wish more! Added to FeedBurner as nicely

That's why in a topic like this, we need the Holy Spirit to guide and speak to us so that the message of the Lord will be clear to us. In the new testament, the word "God" is used to emphasize the Father in heaven, that is why Jesus is called the son of God. The God's name is used many times in the new testament. I am blessed that I've read your blog about God. God bless you

I strongly believe that we shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord our God. It does not simply refer to the misuse of His name but also it is dealing with God and speaking of God in a way that empties Him of his significance. Taking His name in vain is more than just using expressions such as "Oh my God" or "Jesus Christ!" As a lesson, we must not empty God's weight and glory. Thank you for sharing this! Have a nice day.
