Response to EVM


Gal. 1:20. In Rev. 10:6 an angel swore an oath too. Heb. 6:16 also approves of oaths.
So what Jesus, and later James, criticized is the overuse of oaths. That is what we should not do. But if we are required to swear an oath, for example in a court, then we swear an oath. Though in the US there is provision that instead of saying "I swear", we can say "I affirm", in a court, due to the fact that there are Christian denominations that believe swearing oaths is a sin, based on their interpretation of Mt. 5:33-34 and James 5:12, for example Mennonite churches, Quakers, and the Church of God (Cleveland, TN), and offshoots from this Church of God. But those churches are in error, they have not taken 2 Cor. 1:23, Gal. 1:20, Rev 10:6 and Heb. 6:16 properly into account.
