If you're a Christian like me, you shouldn't be saying "OMG" or "Oh my God." Why? Let's read what the Bible says about God's name.
Exodus 20:7 (NIV) clearly states that we must deal with God's name with utmost respect.
“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name."
I'm pretty sure that you wouldn't be happy either if your name is used in a nonsensical way. Your name is so precious that it seems like music to your ears when somebody mentions your name dearly and with respect.
How much more would this be in the case of using our Creator's name? God's name is so holy that it must be treated and used with reverence.
It is not something to be uttered to make jokes, to express despair, to emphasize, or anything else aside from giving praises, asking for forgiveness, or inviting God to guide or bless us.
I hope that this microblog post about why Christians shouldn't say "OMG" or "Oh my God" can enlighten your souls. May we continually regard God as our King, Almighty Father, Creator, Savior, Divine Healer, Holy Provider.
God deserves continuous and unwavering adoration. May we not forget it today and forever.
