lt was recently brought to my attention that if you have a god and that god happens to be the god of the bible you should never even say that phrase. l mean Christians are not supposed to say their gods name in vain right? l myself often use it with often variations like "oh your god" and what not but l'm atheist so no matter what l do l'll burn in hell anyway. Anyway l'm asking all you Christians out there if you use it or have used it and what's your opinion on it.

With this in mind, is anyone going to heaven???? Going to be a pretty empty place. Kind of makes me wonder why so many are in religion since by these term, no one has a chance. OMGOh my Goodness!!!! Ha!Ha!Ha! They won't get me!!

I checked the dictionary on GOSH. It is a euphenism for God. Hmmmm??? You may not go to hell for this but you are definitely walking that fence. We are just going to have to keep an eye on you!!

I'm a Christian and I've known that going OMG is taking the Lord's name in vain since my Mom explained what taking the Lord's name in vain meant when I was like six or something. Throwing around God's name like a curse and swearing on it... etc. I must admit though... sometimes it slips out of my mouth. Just like regular curse words. Yeah, I'm a sinner. Good thing Jesus saved me.

Ever tried to work it out of your language using one of those lame replacements "gosh" "goodness" "or even "f*ck"

Ivansama, I actually make-up loads of curses and use made-up curses I find in my favorite fantasy novels. So I can throughly confuse people by stubbing my toe and spouting off exclamations like "Plagues!", "Dragon's Teeth!", "What-the-swedish-muffin!", and "Colorful adjective inserted here!" (Those exact words, no euphemism. lol) If all else fails... an incoherent screech works just fine.

Allyoftherain l on the other hand found made-up curse quite useful. Mostly plagiarized from favorite shows of mine like "Oh sweet mother of hawking" in monsters vs aliens and "frak" in battle star galactica and "Slag" in transformers. Guess it depends on the people you use them with. And lotterylover l see you're point. For once l'm not going to be a troll and go on about how jesus was absolutely plagiarized from other "pagan" cultures and what not.

The christians took that commandment and really twisted it all around. It does not mean that you cannot say the name of the Lord in everyday speach. It means that you cannot make a contract in His Name that that you have no intention of keeping...Thus you cannot Swear in His Name if you are not going to honor IT. Of course you should never Curse the name of the Lord either. But to say "OMG" the way christians do is not a curse. Orthodox Jews do not say the name of the Lord nor do they write it. They use the word HaShem...it means "The Name". Saves the whole problem of worrying about cursing etc. They never write the Lord's Name because you do not destroy the Holy Name or throw it away...even many Conservative Jews use the word HaShem for this reason. So do not make any contracts by swearing in the Name of HaShem, that you have no intention of keeping, and you will not be burning in your christian hell.
