Love as a blessing or a curse? It's your choice.

We're only human.

We all swear, or use a "curse" or a "cuss" word from time to time.

When we stub our toe...make a big or little mistake...in a moment of distress, anger, depression, or whenever.

After all, these things can't be helped. 

We live in an imperfect world.

But the only "cursing" that I would suggest that we all should refrain from "expressing," is taking the Lord's name in vain - however you may view or experience the "Lord" or "God" in your life.

Whether you're Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu or if, like myself, you are a "Love-tian," then it's ultimately not a "good" thing...for anybody...but especially yourself, if you take the Lord's name in vain.

Here's the deal:

What if anytime, anywhere - anyone who got angry took YOUR name in vain?

That would be a lot of "cursing" coming over your way, wouldn't it?

Of course - and who wants that?

That said, too - and just to be clear, "Christ" is not the last name of Jesus or anything of that nature; and it always makes me laugh when people think such a thing; because that couldn't be further from the truth.

In the original Sacred Scriptures of what we have come to know as "The Bible," Jesus was referred to as "Jesus THE Christ," which when translated from ancient sanskrit means, "Jesus, the Enlightened One" or "The One of Light."

And for whatever reason, later editors of The Bible removed the "The" from in between "Jesus" and "Christ," and today the majority of our world refers to Jesus as "Jesus Christ."

Anyway, when anyone takes what they believe as the "first" or "last" name of Jesus "in vain," that ultimately brings upon darkness, as they are basically cursing "The Light."

By the same regard, when someone corrupts the name "God," which and who is "Love"...or better stated "Love IS God," then they ultimately damn the idea, concept and experience of Love itself in their lives.

And why would anyone want to "curse" that?

  1. I agree with you wholeheartedly! Using God's Name in vain ranks first in all curses, oaths, and swearings. Whether one believes in God or not, calling on Him in anger or in jest or in pause fillers is wrong. I was happy to read your blog here, Herbie. Right on!
