From the 1599 Geneva Bible: "Thou fhalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vaine: for the Lord will not holde him guiltneffe that taketh His Name in vaine." In another discussion I was discussing the JW's and really felt uneasy about writing the Name of God. As most of you know, anywhere our KJV Bibles have "LORD" in all caps, the original manuscripts usually have the actual name of Our Heavenly Father. I really have a hard time writing that Name, or the other Name that begins with a Y (especially that one!) as I feel as though doing it in some way violates the commandment. It seems as though I am somehow taking it in vain if I write this. Additionally, I do not usually speak His Holy Name either. I personally feel as though I must display my respect for "The One" as the ultra-orthadox Jewish community does by not saying His Holy Name. Moreover, I am very uncomfortable hearing someone else say these Holy Names, especially when it is done flippantly like that group the "Universe of Y" that is on public-access cable here in Richmond. Am I overreacting? Am I being a little too zealous? Does anyone share this particular behavior?
