Oh my god? Oh my allah?

Why is it that every religion or person in the world can say "Oh my God", yet if we say their god's name in vain like " Oh my allah" or another, we face charges and scorn? It is semi retorical, i just want your opinion.

Well, you could consider it "Oh my god", with a lower-case g. Then it includes just the god in which the speaker believes. But that's just what I think.

Muslims, Jews, and Christians all worship the same God. The Main difference is the interpretation of who Jesus was, the son of God or just a prophet.

Muslims, Jews, and Christians do NOT worship the same God. Allah is nothing like the God of the Bible. Jews and Christians alone worship the true God.

1.How old are you? You really have no clue. Have you ever been around people who use God's name in vain?Otherwise, this has been a waste of time. 2. .....I'll say it again. You have nooo clue. It is not held in high esteem; not by anyone. God said as one of his ten commandments: you shall not use My name in vain. So what is saying "Oh my ..." ....using His name in vain. If it were honoring Him or thinking highly of that person, why would God say we couldn't do it?

gentlemen please!

the bible says thou shalt not use the lords name in vain, but that stands for Iachawe not "god"

It's against the Ten Commandments, do not speak of the Lord in vain. Other religions might not do that, or people just don't listen. I've even heard that something like "oh my gosh" is bad to say, because it's so close to "God", but I'm really not sure how that works, because it would seem more respectful by purposely not saying "Oh my God".

To correct you, technically, Allah IS God. Muslims, Jews, and Christians all worship the same God. The Main difference is the interpretation of who Jesus was, the son of God or just a prophet.

Quoting Timothy Mably
Very true. I say "Oh my gosh" without the motive of making fun and sometimes it's just that, only the motive counts and I believe this is one of those cases so without a bad motive, I suppose it isn't a sin.

Yeah, I guess even if you were little and heard someone say a swear, you might walk around saying it but without a bad motive, so it wouldn't be sinning.
