“You don’t take the name of the Lord in vain with your lips. You take it in vain with your life. It isn’t the people outside the church who take God’s name in vain. They’ve never taken it so they can’t take it in vain. It’s the people on the inside, the nice people who would not dare let one little cuss word fall over their lips—they’re the ones many time whose lives are totally unchanged by the grace of God. They’re the ones who take the name in vain.”
