Definition of the word Swear: To make a solemn affirmation; to make a vow; to declare emphatically.
James chapter 5 - 12 : But above things, my brethren swear not, neither by heaven, neither by earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay be nay; lest thou fall into condemnation.
Psalms chapter 15 - 4 : In whose eyes a vile person is condemed; but he honoured them that fear the Lord, he that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.
Matthews % chapter 34- 35 : But I say unto you , swear not at all; neither by heaven for it's God throne, nor by earth, for it is God's footstool, neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great king.
I realize there are a lot of people that swear by different things in life, but apparently; don't know the truth behind swearing. God warns us about swearing,it just not a thing to do. I think swearing is a detriment to us.
Let's reconsider our take on swearing , because we don't want to do anything that's going to offend or disrepect our father in heaven. If you're a swearer ,my advice for you ; is to pray and ask God to help you to stop.
