STT 091 – Do You Know How to Use God’s Name (HC LD 36, QA 99-100)?

I’ve encountered Christians who don’t seem to realize they are blaspheming God. They use God’s majestic name in casual and trivial ways, and they don’t seem to know the seriousness of this sin. I’ve done it before, and God has helped me be more sensitive to this. How do you use God’s name? Are you confident in how God wants you to use His name? Tune in.
