Default Don't use God for your own interest:

Pope Francis warned against making Jesus into the person we want him to be

That is also making 'images', an idolatry.

The devil himself uses the word of God for his own interest.

"and [the devil] said to him: “If you are the Son of God, cast yourself down. For it has been written: ‘For he has given charge of you to his angels, and they shall take you into their hands, lest perhaps you may hurt your foot against a stone.’ Jesus said to him, “Again, it has been written: ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ” (Matthew 4:6-7).

The devil not only twists the word of God, but also completely changes it. God told Adam that they can eat from every tree of Paradise, except the tree of knowledge good and evil (Gen 2:16-17), but the devil twists God's words entirely, telling Eve that God has prohibited them not to eat from "every" tree (Gen 3:1).

So, let's not, under any circumstance, play his game which is against God's second Commandment.

"You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain. For the Lord will not hold harmless one who takes the name of the Lord his God falsely." (Exodus 20:7).
