Don’t Use God’s Name too Much
Doctrines of Salvation 1:16; “WHEN TO USE TITLE: “THE CHRIST.” The name Christ is a title comparable to the title Messiah and meaning The Anointed One, and has reference to the office of our Savior. If the remarks of a speaker have reference to the nature and calling of our Lord in the office which he holds, then the definite article preceding the name is in perfect order. However, when we are speaking of the Redeemer in some other sense than by reference to his official title, it is well for us not to use the article, but the whole name of our Lord, or, even better still, in order to avoid the too frequent repetition, we can say our Redeemer or Savior or the Lord.
The great lesson for us to learn, in all our preaching, writing, and conversations, is to use the titles of Deity sparingly, not with familiarity, or with lack of reverence.” – Joseph Fielding Smith
Psalm 149:3; “Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.”
If you’re speaking with God or praying to Him then how do you not use His name? Is this another way of the leaders telling people not to pray too much?
How do you have a conversation or relationship with someone and not use their name?
Why wouldn’t you want to be familiar with Him or His name?
The Bible instructs us to do the exact opposite of what Mormon leaders tell people to do.
Wouldn’t they want to encourage people to obey God’s word?
They’re telling their people NOT to have a close relationship with God! If you’re LDS, this isn’t what God wants for you. He wants to love you and be close with you!
