“What shall be said of that vast throng of profane swearers who pollute our language and wound our ears, by a vile mixture of execrations and blasphemies in their common conversation!

“Their throat is an open sepulcher… the poison of asps is under their lips: whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness” (Romans 3:13, 14).

Utterly vain is their thoughtless plea that they mean no harm, vain their excuse that all their companions do the same, vain their plea that it is merely to relieve their feelings! What a madness it is when men anger you, to strike against God and provoke Him far more than others can provoke you! But though their fellows do not censure, nor the police arrest, nor the magistrate punish them, yet “The Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his Name in vain.”

“As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him… as he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water” (Psalm 109:17, 18).

God is dreadfully incensed by this sin, and in the common commission of this Heaven-insulting crime our country has incurred terrible guilt.

It has become almost impossible to walk the streets or to enter mixed company without hearing the sacred Name of God treated with blasphemous contempt. The novels of the day, the stage, and even radio (and more lately television, the cinema, and the press) are terrible offenders, and without doubt this is one of the fearful sins against Himself for which God is now pouring out His judgments upon us. Of old He said unto Israel,

“Because of swearing (cursing) the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil” (Jeremiah 23:10).

And He is still the same: “The Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain.” Sore punishment shall be his portion, if not in this life, then most assuredly so, eternally so, in the life to come.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

Taken from “The Ten Commandments” by A. W. Pink (1886-1952)
