Quote of the Day – From Martin Luther’s “Large Catechism”

The Second Commandment:  “You shall not take the name of God in vain.”

“For to lie and deceive is in itself a gross sin, but it is greatly aggravated when we attempt to justify and confirm it by invoking God’s name and using it to cover our shame.  So from a single sin a double one results – indeed, manifold lies.”
