  • Oaths Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Jul 19, 2022

    SERMON ON THE MOUNT (OATHS) 33 Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, 'Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.' 34 But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God's throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is more

    Lesson 16

    Years ago children, in an effort to convince their friends that they were really serious about a matter, used to make an oath of sorts.

    the church has been conflicted for centuries whether we should make oaths or not. What does this passage teach us about oaths?

    Contributed by Aubrey Vaughan on Feb 4, 2010

    based on 1 rating

    In these five verses Jesus sets forth 1) the original Mosaic teaching, 2) the traditional perversion of that teaching, and 3) His own reemphasis of what God’s standard for truth has always been.

Business people, advertisers, commentators, clerks, salesmen, lawyers, doctors, tradesmen, teachers, writers, politicians, and even many, if not most, preachers are suspect. Our whole society is largely built more

  • A Word Concerning Character Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Nov 10, 2021

    The words men speak are actually a reflection of the heart. People eventually speak what they feel. The character of men, their inner being is eventually revealed as they speak.

    A Word Concerning Character Matthew 5: 33-37 As I began to study this passage, initially it was one of the most difficult to discern that I have studied. I realized the reason for my difficulty was directly related to my approach. The majority of commentaries on this passage approach it from the more

    “What Is Your Word Worth?” Matthew 5:33-37 Daniel Webster once wrote, “There is nothing so powerful as truth – and often, nothing so strange.” Perhaps he had an understanding into the insight that Jesus had about both the need for truth and the difficulty in attaining it.

There is something about a child being able to trust a parent’s promises, a husband or wife trusting every commitment made, or being able to count on people at work to do what promise to do.
