Taking God's Name in Vain

Mollie Ziegler Hemingway has produced an excellent article entitled Vainly Naming the Name for Christianity Today. This would be good material for any catechism class studying the 3rd Commandment (Lutheran numbering of the Commandments) to read.

Regarding the numbering of the commandments (there are three traditions of different ways to number the commandments in the Decalogue), you might enjoy reading James Akin's overview entitled The Division of the Ten Commandments. (Please note that this reference is not an unqualified endorsement of everything that is discussed on that page.)
