Oath Taking: Should Christians Ever Take One?
Based on Matt 5:33-37, “Thou shalt not swear”. Should Christians ever take one? If so, on what occasion? Is Oath Taking a solemn occasion? How could it be in like of Matt 5:34? Is it not Jesus lay down a principle that would make oath taking needless? He teaches that the exact truth should be the law of speech. "Let your speech be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: and whatsoever is more than these is of the evil one." [Matthew 5:39, R.V.]. CM
