The Sermon on the Mount: pt 7, Christ’s Law on Oaths

by Steve Reynolds  /  Matthew 5:33-37  /  February 28, 2016

In our society, especially in the day of social media, we simply cannot trust anyone. False news is everywhere. Most of it is politically motivated (look out for quotes by politicians and always check to see if they are true, which is also easy using Google), but you never know who is lying to you. Today, we are going to talk a little bit about truthfulness. In our text, Jesus interprets yet another Old Testament law, this time concerning promises or vows. And I pray that the main thing we see from this passage today is that followers of Christ must live a truthful life.
