Part of the Creating a culture of saying what you mean series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Over the next two weeks John will look at creating a culture of saying what we mean. If we are not aggressive in our approach, or accusative, or unloving, we can say what we really mean. Be wise with your words. If you find this a challenge this is the series for you.

33Again, 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: 34But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: 35Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. 36Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. 37But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. (KJV)
12But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. (KJV)
