Why is God’s name used as a cuss word? God and even the Holy Name of Jesus Christ is used to express filth, shock, or surprise.
The question is: why God?
First off, think about it for a moment. Would you use your mother’s name as a cuss word? No! Why? Because if you did it would dishonor her. You love and care about her.
Yet we as a society are willingly using God’s name as a cuss word. Dishonoring the Creator who gave us life.
Here’s another thought provoking question for you. Why is it only God’s name used as a cuss word? Hmm? Why not Buddha or Zeus or Muhammad?
No other god or spiritual leader or even person in history has EVER had their name used as a cuss word.
Yet God has. Jesus Christ has. Why?
Because He is hated. That’s why. When you think about it, what religion are most people against? What God are most people denying when they say they don’t believe?
It’s God – the One True God of the Bible.
He is hated so deeply that He is the only one to have His Holy Name used as a filth word.
They say hatred and love are two sides of the same coin. Humanity hates God so deeply He is now a filth word for people to use whenever they want, to throw it out carelessly, not even thinking about the Name they are blaspheming.
They hate Him because He’s real. There’s no other explanation for it. Plenty of other religions have been persecuted and hated over the years, but none as deeply as Jesus Christ. Why?
Because He is real and deep inside, everyone knows it. If they don’t know it consciously, they know it subconsciously. That’s where our sense of right and wrong comes from. We didn’t evolve. We don’t have the sense of morals because we developed over millions of years and someone just randomly decided these things were evil, no! These things ARE evil and they ARE sins and we know and feel it because the truth is God is real and He planted that knowledge somewhere deep inside all of us. Some of us have just closed off our eyes and hearts to His truth.
The Bible says we are enemies of God. Why else would God’s holy name be the only name used as a cuss word?
We know it’s wrong. Yet we do it anyway.
