Oh My God!

"Oh my God!" I've heard the phrase used flippantly for years. It's always bothered me but I guess the closer I get to God the more it pains me hear His name taken in vain. And it's not limited to the vocabulary of the godless.  I hear well-meaning Christians use the phrase, "Oh my God!" and I wonder if they even know what they're saying. It's concerned me to the extent that a while back I had developed a series on the power of words and was planning to devote an entire message on this very topic. This is why I was excited to hear about a church in Florida who is launching a media campaign that will tackle this issue and hopefully challenge people to think about the power of their words, specifically this phrase we hear so often. Here are a few of the television ads they are running.

That always offends me too. People take it too lightly using the Lords name in my opinion.
