Screaming God’s name is one of many reflex actions that could happen during love-making.
Although many people may argue that this is only natural, American televangelist and founder of the Cornerstone Church, Texas, United States, John Hagee, has a different view on this.
For him, any woman who calls the name of God during sex is guilty of a heinous crime which should be punishable by imprisonment.
His conviction, contained in an interview with newslo.com, is based on the perception that the Bible expressly forbids calling the name of God in vain.
“If you’re asking about my personal opinion, there is no greater sin in terms of wrongly using God’s name than women who use it during sex,” Hagee said in response to a question in this regard.
Continuing, he said, “That is one of the filthiest, most derogatory and sinful uses of the Lord’s name I can think of. If it were up to me, I would put every single woman or girl who does that in jail. That would be a fine example of God’s wrath aimed at what is, in my opinion, a terrible misuse of our Maker’s good name.”
The popular televangelist said, one of the things that the Bible has consistently denounced is the taking of the Lord’s name in vain, adding, “In fact, one of the Ten Commandments in the Old Testament states: “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain” (Exodus 20:7). The word “vain” means “for no reason” or “useless”.
