"I researched and soul searched what this commandment means, the deeper meaning and the most simplistic understanding. What is G-D and what is His name? How many names are there for our G-D? Does it matter if it’s in English, or French or other languages besides Hebrew? Why does 'taking His name in vain' create such a huge transgression? It’s the third of the top ten biggies.
How does one 'take(s) His name in vain'? What does that mean?
Why won’t G-D absolve anyone for 'taking' His name in vain? It’s extremely common for people to say, 'G-D damn it' or 'Oh my G-D', 'for G-D’s sake', etc. Is that what this commandment means?
We are taught that words matter. What we say has an impact. G-D spoke and created the entire world with His words. If we are made in his image, does that mean we create with our words?"
