“…But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne…

20131123_214932DO NOT TAKE A FALSE OATH:   It says in Matthew 5:33: Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:  But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:  Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.  Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.  But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.  Over my entire business career, I’ve been involved in many lawsuits; and NOT-ONE was pure of truth.   In absolutely every case, the opposition swore to tell the truth, and told falsehoods, instead. Probably one-half would be considered white lies, yet still damaging.  The other half was such humongous lies that bore no resemblance to any form of truth.  The point here is that most of those so-called executives, owners, and CEO’s were, by most standards, considered to be respectable people in the community.  They felt that their community standing would shield them from any sort of repercussions.  And they were right.  But, the fact of the matter is ….with little exception …they’re all dead.  May their souls rest in peace!  Position is not a license to lie.  Hebrews 6:18 – God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. …Blessings…cjlb…11/24/13
