Bible warnings about swearing oaths

Many people are cunningly deceived into waiving their rights by legalities that they do not understand. Oaths are a main tripping hazard. Every dictionary will tell you that oaths are religious rituals.  If you had obeyed God’s laws, you could have avoided the snares that you were warned about. There are Bible warnings about swearing oaths.

There are standard moral values in the Bible that will keep you from being led astray.

God’s people have a long history of being taken captive. Abraham had to deliver us from Babylon. Moses led God’s people out of Egypt. Christ led us from Roman military occupation.

After Christ led Christians out of Roman occupation, Paul warned the Galatians to ” Stand fast therefore in the liberty with which Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”

The same unchanging Biblical advice applies to us today.  When asked about the end-times, Christ said “take heed that ye be not deceived.”

Will you know enough to avoid captivity before the brimstone hits the fan?

People are destroyed for the lack of knowledge.

I suggest that you repent and seek moral values so that you will not be deceived by fake news. Then you can avoid being “carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting” — Ephesians 4:14 NKJV

FAKE NEWS. There are plenty of hints that the end-times will involve deception. Second Thessalonians 2:9-10 speaks of deceivableness and delusion in the end times.  And there a plenty of other warnings (More…).

The globalists’ deep-state infiltrators gain power by demoralizing you. You can avoid deceptions only if you can manage your own affairs and avoid their psychological manipulations.

Bible warnings about swearing oaths.

First Commandment: You shall have NO OTHER gods before me. The word here is the Hebrew word Elohim.  First Corinthians 8:5 “There are gods many, lords many.”

Second Commandment: You shall not bow down thyself to them nor serve them.

Matthew 5:34 Swear not at all.

James 5:12 Above all things, swear not at all least you be condemned.

Hebrews 6:16 One only takes oaths to superiors.

Declaration of Independence. All men are created equal.

A salute is the assuming of a body position, initiated by the inferior toward the superior. This is contrary to the commandment to never bow down to other gods.

  • One only salutes superiors. A salute is the assuming of a body position by the inferior toward the superior. Raise your right hand, kneel, bow, genuflect, curtsy, prostrate, obeisance, kowtow, or stoop. Do homage, deference, lick the boots … etc. Romans 11:10 uses the phrase “bow down their back”. Even standing when a judge enters a courtroom. Actions speak louder than words.  Even asking for help (supplicate, beseech, adjure) is proof that you cannot manage your own affairs.
  • Dwight Eisenhower said “if an American wants to preserve his dignity and his equality as a human being, he must not bow his neck to any dictatorial government.” (More…)
  • John Dickinson, signer of the U.S. Constitution, also used a similar phrase to explain that you cannot comply your way out of tyranny. “If you quietly bend your Necks to that Yoke, you prove yourselves ready to receive any Bondage to which your Lords and Masters shall please to subject you.”

And yet people raise their hands judges.

And yet people sign perjury oath signatures on tax forms.

Esau sold his birthright with an oath and so did you. God hated Esau. Romans 9:13, Malachi 1:3

Samuel Adams knew that crouching down was a surrender of birthright.

“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

— Samuel Adams’ American Independence speech at the steps of the Philadelphia State House, the meeting place for the Constitutional Convention. August 1, 1776
