Making Faith Real ... Above All Else
Be men and women of our word
Let your Yes be Yes and your No be No
Don't make promises you cannot keep
Hold fast to the truth that God loves you and has a plan for you
Believe with your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is God and you will be saved
Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath. But let your “yes” mean “yes,” and your “no” mean “no,” so that you won’t fall under judgment.
“Again, you have heard that it was said to our ancestors,You must not break your oath, but you must keep your oaths to the Lord.34 But I tell you, don’t take an oath at all: either by heaven, because it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, because it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, because it is the city of the great King. 36 Do not swear by your head, because you cannot make a single hair white or black. 37 But let your ‘yes’ mean ‘yes,’ and your ‘no’ mean ‘no.’ Anything more than this is from the evil one.
