Jesus Christ the Son of God, who came into the world to save mankind from sin and its dreadful consequence, unutterable woe, in his sermon on the mount, says:
"Ye have heard that it has been said by them of old time, thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: but I say unto you, swear not at all, neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King: neither shalt thou swear by thy head; because thou canst not make one hair white or black; but let your communication be yea, yea; nay, nay for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil."
The apostle James says, "But 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." The prophet Jeremiah says, "Because of swearing the land mourneth."
