[quote=TTM]Yes, I’ve wondered about this too. Is it OK for a Christian to say “oh my God”, as an exclamation? I’m talking about people who have real love for God in their heart.
Hi. I do not believe that using God’s name as an exclamation is proper, it is taking the name of God carlessly, without meaning or respect. When friends or contacts do so I usually bring it to their attention and the vast majority of the time, they say “I never thought of it like that.” A few do not agree and I then ask them not to say it around me; they don’t like it but usually try to refrain.
When I aks people not to use the Lord’s name in vain (for “gd” or any other indescretion) they usually say to me, sincerly, “I’m sorry if I offended you.” and I usually reply, “it’s God you should say your sorry to,” (in a friendly tone) and it usually makes them think.
I never use the Lord’s name in vain or use vulger words:nope: , but I could use you prayers in trying not to be so callus in when I talk to others:( . It is easy to say what we do not do but hard to admit what we do.
May the Lord Jesus Christ, bless you now and always and forever :amen: .
