The Second Commandment

The Second Commandment tells us to love God’s name. Names are special. Your name is very special to you. Your name is what is used when people wish to talk to you.

No one should dishonor anyone's name, especially God's name.

His name should be:
Spoken with respect.
Prayed to with care
Asked for with love

We give honor to His name when we make and keep a promise in the name of God when we say prayers to praise God.

When we curse or use profanity we break the Second Commandment. Cursing means to wish evil upon a person or to ask God to punish a person. Profanity means using the name of God in anger. We also sin by making fun of God, the Saints or Holy things.
