Something about that Name

Doris Lessing

Doris Lessing

Author Doris Lessing died at her home in London Sunday at the age of 94. The outspoken Lessing wrote dozens of novels, essays, short stories and poems. Her novel, The Golden Notebook, was her best-known work. Lessing won the 2007 Nobel Prize for her collective writings. It is reported that when Ms. Lessing approached her house and found journalists waiting at her door to inform her that she won the Nobel Prize, she replied, “Oh, C*****! I couldn’t care less.”

It’s funny how those who don’t even follow Christ will swear by his name or title. In doing so, they unwittingly acknowledge that he is Lord.

I’ve never heard anyone use the name of another religious leader in vain. Have you?

“…At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”—Philippians 2:10-11.

“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.”—Exodus 20:7.
