HE is the only one Lord!

I must say, I am offended. Not for just myself but for our Heavenly Father.

Let me explain...

I'm hear at work and I was talking to my boss about work related issues. I had just gotten off the phone with my boss' dad who happens to be a client, and my boss asked me if his dad had started cursing yet and I said "no, he just said the Lord's name in vain though". I have shared with my boss that I don't like it when people use the Lord's name in vain. In fact, I've said that to him a few times because he himself has said it. It's disrespectful and it offends me.

Well, after I told him "no, he just said the Lord's name in vain though" he corrects me by saying "Your Lord. Not 'THE Lord', your Lord". He goes on to say that he doesn't have a Lord.

I'm not offended because he corrected me and I got defensive for being corrected. I'm offended because God is being disregarded. At what point should I continue to correct my boss? I don't want to get fired but I feel I need to stand up for my beliefs. Is this a situation I should keep hush or will God be dissappointed in me for doing so?

It bothers to think that here, Jesus died on the cross for each and every one of us and there are people out there that don't believe and completely disregard him or speaks blasphemy. It hurts and saddens me. It really does.

When is it enough for us to finally stand up (in a loving way) for what we believe in and not worry if we are offending others. I understand people have their own beliefs but so do we. Everyone else in this country doesn't seem to worry about sharing their beliefs so why should we!

So what point should I continue to correct my boss?
