In the name of Jesus, stop saying “in the name of Jesus”

I sometimes see this, people who get so… vexed with me that they start spouting,  “IN THE NAME OF JESUS, STOP YOUR INSULTS!”

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, STOP EATING THOSE CHEETOS!

DON’T TALK TO THOSE SINNERS, IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I COMMAND MY WALLET TO GIVE ME MONEY, IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

You know what this sounds like?  An incantation.  The name of Jesus is now reduced to mere magical words one merely has to bellow in order to achieve the effect he’s looking for.  It’s not spoken out of faith or conviction, it’s simply a mantra or vain repetition.  It’s ironic because it irritates me to no end, so those who see that think my irritation is a result of all the crazy demons inside me that are churning in uneasiness and fear over hearing the name of Jesus.  No, it’s just me trying to restrain myself from slapping you one.

It never once occurs to them that they’re in essence using the Lord’s name in vain, and it is them who dishonors God by reducing Him to a magical phrase.

    But, I like Cheetos!

      Cheetos are overrated. Cheese Doodles are MUCH better.

    In the name of Jesus, I pray… PLEASE do yourself a favor, go to youtube, and search “God Warrior.” Just brace yourself. Be prepared. But seriously… I really hope you check this out and reply back with your thoughts. I’m giddily awaiting your reaction.

      Oh boy… I should probably make sure there are no sharp objects near me before I go watch it.

      Oh yeah, I remember this from a while back when she sparked a crazed Internet meme, which I immediately blocked from my mind so I wouldn’t foam at the mouth and start biting people. Thank you SO much though for reminding me. :-P

      I reckon the producers were thinking, “Hey where can we find the craziest bat cracks insane balls fundiewagon beast to totes rag on those silly Jesus freaks?” and then suddenly she stormed into their office and said, “Pick me! Pick me!! IN THE NAME OF JESUS PICK MEEEEEEEE!!!!!!”

      I’m ready for the Rapture now.

    Talking about Jesus from the guy who on another blog blames men viewing porn on their wives who “won’t put out”? You’re disgusting.

      And you’re a pussy whipped, white knighting gamma bag with less testosterone than Liberace. Ahhhhh, glad we both got that off our chests.

      I know, I have a dark side. It likes to come out and play every now and then.
