Sunday Morning 7/10/11

We are continuing our look at the 10 Commandments.  This week I shared about the commandment to not take the name of the Lord in vain from Deuteronomy 5:11.  God has been showing us some powerful truth in His Word as we continue this study.  I pray that you will be richly blessed as well.

P.S. This is a shorter sermon than my usual.  Enjoy.
