Bible Study: What does it mean to take God’s name in vain?

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 20:7This is a follow up article of the last two articles and the reason the previous articles were written. Here is the first and second articles. It is recommended you read those two before this one. Because I think it will get you in the right frame of mind to understand this topic.

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 20:7

sons of GodThe title of posts are just straight up give-aways aren’t they? If you haven’t figured it out already, this is a Bible Study about the “sons of God” and who they are. It’s just kind of hard to get a good search engine result with a clever title like “Going to church with the sons of God”. Lets make that the unofficial title! :)

Some Backstory:
When I first came to know the truth, this was one of my first questions of which I was blown away by the answer. It was one of those WOW (Wide Open Word) moments.
