Bible Studies/3rd commandment.


Hello, if I have a tag name called "jesus is god" am I using The Lord's name in vain?

The use of God's name in vain is a matter of context and intent.  The statement "Jesus is God" is certainly true and, if you are using it to point out this truth, then it is not in vain.  Do you intend to glorify God by using this tag name?  What is your motivation behind using the tag?  If you can honestly answer these questions by saying that you want to honor God - and you believe someone will benefit from the message and seek Him - then your motivation is pure.  One suggestion is to show honor by using capital letters for Jesus and God as a sign of respect and use of a proper name.

Using the Bible as my primary source and references in support of it, I am willing to answer questions on subjects from the Old and New Testaments. My faith is based on biblical Christianity and fundamental views from the Bible. I cannot answer questions about specific sects or religious organizations nor can I address religions outside biblical Christianity. As a Christian for over 40 years, I have studied many aspects of the Christian faith. My particular interests are in creation and the natural processes of the world around us and how they fit with the biblical record. I believe that all Scripture is inspired by God. I believe that there are no contradictions in the Bible and that the Bible is complete in telling us as individuals how we should relate to God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit; our purpose on earth; and how we should live. Greek lauguage study has helped me gain additional insight into the New Testament but most of my reference work is done in English and, to a lesser degree, German.


Personal Bible study over the years, lessons delivered in Sunday School settings and messages during organized services, and leading Bible study series have prepared me to be comfortable addressing questions from others.

Formal study includes Greek language. I am a layman without a theological degree. Training has come from sitting under the ministry of excellent Bible teachers for my entire adult life, personal study, and selected courses. Secular educational background includes an undergraduate engineering degree, graduate work in engineering and business, and advanced courses in business and theology.
