Taking the Lord's Name in Vain

Friends, I've heard some of you say things like "Oh my God," as if it's no big deal. Let me tell you. It's a big deal. Look at Revelation 16:9, and verse 21:
And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, [every stone] about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
Cursing, and swearing, you blaspheme the name of the Lord, like the lost do, who are in slavery to the devil, and on whom, for such deeds, will be poured fire and brimstone, and all the fierceness of the wrath of the almighty God. I'm not sure that's such a great idea. Your tongue is "an unruly evil full of deadly poison", "set on fire by Hell!" So shut up.
