Break The Chain

Since August of 2014, Lift Him Up has praised, revered, glorified and lifted up our Creator’s title name – God. To do any less in our everyday-God-given-lives, is blaspheme. I invite you now to Break The Chain of misusing His name! 

Break The Chain is a format for you to post your personal commitment to refrain from the social misuse of OMG! and Oh My G**! Here is the place you can talk about any misuse of God’s name you have seen or heard, and how you feel about it.

Break The Chain

If not you then who? Who will stand up for God’s commands? Who will stand up for God to preserve the holiness of His name and break the chain of passing on OMGs to BFFs as they LOL? Simply clicking the delete button on specific texts will shine light on your soul.

  • Commitment to refrain from OMG! and Oh My G**! for the sake of yourself.
  • Change your irreverent communication skills for the sake of society.
  • Surrender all sinful misuse of His glorious name over to God, who gave us our voice in the first place.

Leave your comment in the space below, or share a misuse you heard or witnessed. When you take action of Commitment, Change and Surrender, you encourage yourself to remember where you stand on truth; God’s name must be kept holy. This action will help keep you, in the habit of respecting the title name G-O-D.

  1. I’m going to start off this page with a personal story. – Where are the irreverent offenses of speaking God’s name in vain taking place? Everywhere people talk. My husband and I visited a different church this morning. As we walked to the front door of church, there was a family following behind us. Their first words, which I couldn’t help but over hear were “Oh My G**! blah blah blah…” The need is now, for us to remember who He is. Please join the movement.

  2. Hi Debra. You may know this, but if not I thought it would interest you. Back when Crocodile Hunter was popular, so was the term he often used, “Crikey.” It caught on with me too – until I discovered for an Aussie its an expression derived from “Christ.” That put an end to it immediately for me.

    Also the Brit term “bloody” appears to have its roots in the blood of Christ on the Cross, so its another that is no better. There seems to be a lack of clarity on this one, but it seems questionable enough that people of faith should avoid it.

    It helps to know the derivations of the words we use before we use them, and I am making an effort to be more careful about the words I use now.

    • Scott, I did enjoy the Crocodile Hunter movies, but did not know that about the “Crikey” word. I never hear “Crikey” or “bloody” used in my area so I have not given it thought. But I do thank you for sharing. History is so very important to help us better understand the third commandment.

  3. Thank you for this article! I have difficulty getting Christians to understand that they are misusing God’s name when it is used for any and every expression (fear, happy, they like something, excited about something, anger, and every other expression and as part of every sentence and conversation – even toddlers repeat it). I have heard many pastors’ sermons (well-known, internationally known, and local – radio/TV/local church) and their conversations using God’s name in unglorified ways – during their expressions – not during glory to God or honoring God by representing Him appropriately. How can we explain to the non-Christian world that it is dishonoring God when pastors and Christians use His name in the same way that they, the non-Christians use His name? The worldly entities’ names/titles aren’t used in ‘unglorified’ ways! I must admit that I sometimes do not remain quiet and tell the offender that they just cursed God when they should say thank you for the gift they just received or for the other “happy” occasions that they curse God by using His name as an inappropriate expression.

    • Thank you for your comment, Ann. Yes, the name title “God” not only tells us He is the supreme being, it represents all that He is. His loving character, His awesome power, His gifts of mercy and grace to us. To use God in an unholy manner, no matter our intent is mad or glad, is to misrepresent and blasphemy Him.
