    Vanity, Is lipstick on a pig an expression of vanity?
    What is vanity?

    When we read, Thou shall not take the Lord thy God’s name in vain, does that indicate we should know and understand vanity? Does this mean we should know and understand God’s name also?

    Are the commandments threats –or- promises? Does a threat imply fear? Does a promise imply hope?

    Did God promise us, we would NOT take his name in vain? –OR- Did God threaten us regarding his name?

    How do you take God’s name? Is it like getting married and saying I do?
    Is the church referred to as the Bride of Christ. Is there a parable of virgins waiting for the bridegroom? Are some of them referred to as Foolish? Had they taken Gods name? If not, Why were they waiting? Were some of them waiting in vain?

    Is “God” a generic term? Is “governor” a generic title? Does governor apply to Kay Ivey of Alabama , George Wallace, Robert Bentley, Jim Folsom? Hey Governor! Which one?
    Hey God!.....which one? .....The God of the first day.....-or..... The God of the seventh day....WHAT IS THEIR NAME?

    Does the term “God” apply to others also? Why would Joshua say, “And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods. ?

    Is it vanity to sit in the church pew, see the pastor and baptismal candidate stand in the baptistery, the pastor raise his arm and say, I baptize you in the name of the father, the son and the holy spirit, knowing neither the pastor nor the candidate know the Father’s name? Would it be appropriate for some one to ask, what is the father’s name? Whose name are you being baptized into? Who are you marrying? What is you husband’s name? Is the Father’s name generic? Is Governor a Generic term? Is God ....a name -or- a title? Is it generic? How effective is generic religion?

    Is it lipstick on a pig to pray, our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, when you don’t know his name? How can you hallow something you don’t know? Where is the Sabbath School Quarterly that addressees this? Why have you never seen one? Do you know you never will? Do you know why you never will?

    …..In vain do they worship me…..Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you:
