Nothing more quickly or truly indicates an irreverent and undevout mind!

(Octavius Winslow)

"Our Father in Heaven, may Your name be kept holy." Matthew 6:9

Nothing more quickly or truly indicates an irreverent and undevout mind, than levity on sacred subjects. The individual who can provoke a smile, or indulge in a cleverness, or shape a witticism — at the expense of what is divine and sacred — is blasphemous indeed! He who can treat in a light manner any religious subject, who can turn the Bible into a jest-book, and intersperse secular conversation with religious phraseology or Scripture language in sport — will the great God hold such an irreverent and profane mind guiltless?

"You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain — for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain!" Exodus 20:7
