Ok, so I haven't blogged in a full week. To be honest, there is no good reason for this. I just didn't feel like writing a blog and so my mind wouldn't think of something to write about, but finally I realized my laziness. So, yeah, I'm sorry for not blogging this week. Really I am. I knew this would be a commitment when I started it up and I really shouldn't avoid it just cause. So, I am sorry.
So I don't really know what to blog about, but the other day, I heard an Atheist say Christ's name in vain. I asked him not to say God's name in vain and he made a joke about it and then said, "I don't even believe in God." That statement made me curious. So in the middle of art I zoned out, consumed by my thoughts for just a few moments. Then I finally asked him one simple question: "If you don't believe in God, then why, when you get angry, do you say his name in vain instead of something else?" He didn't have an answer. This egged on more thoughts on this subject.
I think that it is pretty amazing how God has made such an impression on this world that even the people who do not believe still say His name on a regular basis. I have witnessed many people say Jesus's name in vain when ever they mess up, get angry, or hurt themselves in some way (Like stubbing your toe on a chair...I do that all the time. Darn chairs). Jesus definitely has a lasting impact if even Atheist say His name when angered.
So think about this: Do you hear people going around and saying Buda's name each time they kick a chair? I know that I don't. But people say God's name all the time. I hear it said in vain at least 3 times a day. It's crazy (and really annoying). Jesus lived so differently, making such an impression on the world, that even people of today notice something. Otherwise, there wouldn't be anyone saying his name in vain. People have looked at Jesus and (even if it was subconsciously) said, "hey that dude is different." Because He was. He was out of this world literally.
I don't know. That is just something I was thinking about and thought that maybe I'd share.
(FYI I am not saying that I am ok with people saying God's name in vain by any means. That is actually one of my biggest pet peeves.)
