I think it means to not take His name for granted...iow,He himself.
So the message is...Don't take God for granted!
I'm not so sure it's the nit-picky version of saying "Oh God!" when you hit your hand with a hammer and such.

It's kind of like what I was telling my son when he was little,when he said we needed to burn our flag b/c it touched the ground.I told him that was just for ceremonial purposes only,as in public ones.we don't need to do that at home! no nit-picking needed.

It also reminds me of the definition of gluttony.I think it means not to keep all the food for yourself,IOW SHARE what you have.it's not about overeating at all,imo.
for example,when Jesus passed the fish and bread out to the crowd,if someone had kept a lot of it to himself and not shared any,that would be gluttony.JMO.

I noticed that everyone reponded in reference to Jesus. Why not use the name of the Father (in an honorable way of course)?

Yes, we do know.

The proper pronunciation is ee-a-soos and it comes from a Hebrew word pronounced as yeh-ho-shoo-ah (Joshua).

But, I don't really think it matters. Just as I will answer to my first name, last name, endearing name (such as "Pa" "Dad" or "Papaw" or even "Hey, you!") the important thing is whether or not it's the proper name, but whether or not it's spoken in love.

No, "glutton" (Gluttony does not appear in the Bible) means to be worthless, insignificant, vile.

So why so easily dismiss the Father's name? Why not apply that same reasoning to embrace the english recognition of the Father's name...Yahweh/Jehovah?
I too answer to an attempt at my name if done so out of respect...and believe me people BUTCHER my name ! If I can do that- no doubt that HE can do it .

So, why worry about it?

It seems to be just another form of legalism to me.

Do you mean, why even bother to know and use the Father's name?
