Did the President Take the Lord’s Name in Vain?

THIS article should scare the crap out of you. A full 91 percent of Democrats see violence coming next. That means nearly ALL democrats expect to be physically fighting soon. Perfect timing dummies.

I have been waiting for this. Or as Karen J. Hartman-Tellez, Assistant Attorney General of Arizona said, I laid in wait and pounced.

Sen-Hardesty-Letter-to-Trump

The article is called, “Trump called out by some Christians for using ‘Lord’s name in vain” by Mark Price of the Charlotte Observer on July 18, 2019

The controversial ‘send her back’ crowd chant at President Donald Trump’s North Carolina rally may have gotten all the headlines, but some Christians are grumbling over something most of the media completely ignored.

Trump cursed, and it was not just a few vulgarities. He took the Lord’s name in vain.

Twice.

One state senator in West Virginia was so offended that he sent a letter of rebuke to the White House Thursday, pointing out Trump’s ‘terrible choice of words’ during the Greenville rally.”

 

BUT DID HE TAKE THE LORD’S NAME IN VAIN?

He cursed. In this contect ‘curse’ means : “utter offensive words in anger or annoyance”. It does not mean in vain. Vain means

Definition of vain

1 : having or showing undue or excessive pride in one’s appearance or achievements : conceited
2 : marked by futility or ineffectualness : unsuccessful, useless vain efforts to escape
3 : having no real value : idle, worthless vain pretensions
4 archaic : foolish, silly

in vain
1 : to no end : without success or result her efforts were in vain
2 : in an irreverent or blasphemous manner you shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain — Deuteronomy 5:11 (Revised Standard Version) is incorrectly assumed. The passage actually states “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.” A clone of Exodus not at all being irreverent or blasphemous UNLESS it is what it really IS.

Exodus 20:7-11 King James Version (KJV) 7:

“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.”

Literally speaking then the actual line should say:

 

Don’t attempt to lift up the honor and authority of the eternal Lord by attributing evil to G-D.

It does not mean to not cuss. Words are just symbols using sounds. They have no meaning whatsoeverm other than what a common acceptance provides them.

Stop judging Senator. It is well above your pay grade.
