The Third Commandment: You Shall Not take the Name of the Lord in Vain

By Michael Thiessen, Ryan Eras/ February 15, 2023

Series  Podcast for Cultural Reformation

Topic  The Bible

In this episode Ezra Institute Fellow Michael Thiessen discusses what it means to take the name of the Lord, both rightly and wrongly, in the church, in politics, and in any other sphere. We also talk about the nature of oaths and authority, the Sermon on the Mount, what it means for something to be damned by God, and door-to-door sales. NOTE: we do not use language flippantly, but this episode contains language that parents may not want your children to hear.
