“You Shall Not Take The Name Of The Lord, Your God, In Vain”

161Question: Does the third commandment: “You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain” mean that you cannot attract the force of the Creator in order to perform any egoistic action?

Answer: You can act by the force of the Creator only to the extent of your similarity to Him, to the extent of your uniting with Him.

Question: Can you not summon its influence upon yourself or use it egoistically for your own sake to defeat nations, enrich yourself, and so on?

Answer: This is out of the question!

Question: And if I do not correspond to Him, then I can ask or not ask, but He still will not influence me?

Answer: You can ask. But it is precisely that the Creator helps you be like Him. For this purpose, it is always possible and desirable to appeal. Such a request will be granted.
