The 3rd Commandment is more than just a call to rest. Fr. Bill discusses how the Commandment ties into the Hebrew experience of Exodus and our Christian call to celebrate both Creation and the Resurrection.
Jesus declares Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit to be the one Unforgivable Sin and God declared that Taking the Lord’s name in Vain would NOT go unpunished.
Fr. Bill discusses both the Second Commandment and the Words of Jesus and how they are violated today when people “take the Lord’s Name in vain”.
