Does It Matter What We Call Jesus?

For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are One. 1 John 5:7

The Word is another name for Jesus. So is: Savior, Lord, Jehovah, Christ, the Light of the World, Prince of Peace and the list goes on and on. Does it matter what we call Jesus? You may think that this is a strange topic for me to address in a Christian Overeaters Past and Present Blog post. The thing is, I wrote this post because I felt led to show you the positive impact that Christ has had on my life, my food, and my eating and this is a part of that:

Well, the answer to: Does it matter what we call Jesus? is both yes and no. In some ways it doesn't, because any of these respectful names for our Savior is acceptable. It does matter when we use Jesus' name in vain saying things like: My Lord, did you forget again? or Jesus Christ, my team lost! Many of us who profess to be Christians, get caught up in the secular world and use God's name in vain as a slang thing to say without even thinking. Does it matter to God? You bet it does as evidenced by these many Bible Passages!

Exodus 20:7 Thou shalt not take the Name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain. 

Leviticus 19:12 And ye shall not swear by My Name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the Name of thy God: I am the LORD.

Leviticus 24:15-16.And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel saying, Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin.  And he that blasphemeth the Name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the Name of the LORD, shall be put to death. 

Deuteronomy 5:11 Thou shalt not take the Name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain.

Psalm 139:19-20 Surely Thou wilt slay the wicked, O God; depart from me therefore, ye bloody men, For they speak against Thee wickedly, and Thine enemies take Thy Name in vain. 

Colossians 3: 8-10.But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.  Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created Him. 

Matthew 12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

Mark 3: 29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
