OM *what*?

From Jesus’ own words, we are to pray “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name”. (Matthew, Luke)

Hallowed – Consecrated to a sacred use, or to religious exercises; treated as sacred; reverenced. (Noah Webster 1828)

Euphemism – A representation of good qualities; particularly in rhetoric, a figure in which a harsh or indelicate word or expression is softened, or rather by which a delicate word or expression is substituted for one which is offensive to good manners or to delicate ears. (Noah Webster 1828)

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.

2 Samuel 7:26 And let thy name be magnified for ever….

Psalm 148:13 Let them praise the name of the LORD; for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above earth and heaven.

God’s name is special. His name is blessed and to be adored.

“Goodness” you say? Christian, you have no goodness.
