All Bad Things Flow from the Oath of a Man


     “Do you swear to tell the truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?”  Stop! Don’t do it.
       “I declare under the penalties of perjury that the forgoing is true and correct....” Stop! Don’t sign it.
Is there any place for an oath within the teachings of true scriptural Christianity?  We will examine the problem with swearing of oaths and the horrible consequences that they produce.  Government workers, the military, registered voters, signature cards on band accounts, secret societies such as free masons, judges, lawyers, physicians and many other groups, depend upon the oath in the establishment of their organizations.
What did Jesus Christ say regarding oaths?  “Again, ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, ’Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform thine oaths to the Lord.  But I say unto you, Swear not at all, neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God:  Nor yet 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 thine head, because thou canst nor make one hair white or black.  But let your communications be Yea, yea: Nay, nay. For whatsoever is more than these, cometh of evil.” (Matthew 5:33-37 Geneva Bible)
There is no question about Christ’s intent when he made this statement about oaths.  By taking or making an oath, we perform and evil deed, and we put ourselves in the dark-side.  There is nothing good that can come from taking any oath.
In the Epistle of James at 5:12 we find the following: “But before all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, nor by earth, nor by any other oath: but let your yea, be yea, and your nay, nay, lest ye fall into condemnation.” (Geneva Bible)
Christ said that anything more than yea, yea, nay, nay, comes from evil.  What he is saying is that the practice of swearing oaths comes from the devil.  And then James states that the consequence of swearing oaths is falling into condemnation.  There is no good thing that comes from swearing oaths, yet the Roman Catholic Church and the Protestant churches are actually founded upon oaths.  Most governments and legal systems come under the oath, and we can see exactly why government and religion are so dysfunctional.  Nothing but evil comes from them, and even if they do anything good, it is always twisted or perverted to promote evil.  One of the best solutions for the world’s problems would be to get rid of the oath.  Throw the oath under the bus and the people who promote such nonsense.  Everyone should repent from this one and it is one of the easiest things to do; just say no to the oath.
When James said “Above all things” he is making this one instruction a top priority.  And the reason is “lest you fall into condemnation.”  By swearing oaths, a man condemns himself to eternal death in hell.  This is a very serious sin against God, and it must be discarded and thrown away.
What exactly is an oath?  The act of swearing an oath is that of a man who binds himself to a bond.  But since a man cannot accurately predict the future, he is essentially lying when he takes an oath.  Thus, he binds himself to a lie.
We get more information from Numbers 30: 3 “Whosoever voweth a vow unto the Lord, or sweareth an oath to bind himself by a bond, he shall not break his promise, but shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.”
How many of us understood what the taking of an oath really meant?  And who would bind his soul to something that comes from a man’s mind?
Does Christ’s teaching on the oath conflict with the teachings of the Old Testament?  The question arises in reference to the following scripture verses in Deuteronomy:  “Thou shall fear the Lord thy God, and serve Him, and shalt swear by His name.”  Deuteronomy 6:13  And again,
in Deuteronomy we see this: “Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God: thou shalt serve him, and thou shalt cleave unto him, and shalt swear by His name.” (Deut. 10:20)  Is there a contradiction?  Was there a change?  In my opinion, based upon the words of Christ, swearing was never allowed to be done by any man.  It is God’s domain.  If it was allowed, then there is the evidence of a change.
“Therefore hear the word of the Lord, all Judah that dwell in the land of Egypt, Behold, I have sworn by my great Name, saith the Lord, that my Name shall no more be called upon by the mouth of any man of Judah, in all the land of Egypt, saying, The Lord God liveth”
(Jeremiah 44:26)  I believe it was at this exact point that God specifically forbade the oath,  if it was allowed to begin with.
This is supported by the fact that in the later prophetical books of the Old Testament a curse is put upon those who swear oaths.
“I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the Priests, And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops, and them that worship and swear by the Lord, and swear by Milcam.” ( Zephaniah 1:4-5)
And in Zechariah 5:3 we see the following: “Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the whole earth: for everyone that stealeth, shall be cut off, as well on this side, as on that: and everyone that sweareth, shall be cut off, as well on this side, as on that.”
We can clearly see from the above Bible references, that the swearing of an oath is a sin and it puts a man under a curse.  And yet, this is tolerated by almost all “Christian” pastors who probably sign their own tax returns and voter registration forms not realizing that they are cursing themselves in the process.
And there are early Christian writings that support these verses.
One is called “The Didache: Teaching of the Lord to the Nations through the Twelve Apostles".  And after reading all of it (only six pages) I can only speculate as to why it was excluded from the Bible.  Within this writing it states: “You will not make an oath.”
And yet again, in another writing called: “The Acts of Pilate or the Gospel of Nicodemas” we find an amazing exchange between Pontius Pilate and the twelve witnesses regarding the betrothal of Joseph and Mary.  Remember, almost all false prophets will challenge the virgin birth of Jesus Christ.  In this Gospel of Nicodemas, the validity of Christ's virgin birth was in controversy, and we see the following exchange.:
       "And Pilate, calling these twelve men who said that He was not born of fornication, says to them: I adjure you by the health of Caesar, to tell me whether it be true that you say, that he was not born of fornication. They say to Pilate: We have a law against taking oaths, because it is a sin; but they will swear by the health of Caesar,  that it is not as we have said, and we are liable to death. Pilate says to Annas and Caiaphas: Have you nothing to answer to this? Annas and Caiaphas say to Pilate: These twelve are believed when they say that he was not born of fornication; all the multitude of us cry out that he was born of fornication, and that he is a sorcerer, and he says that he is the Son of God and a king, and we are not believed.”  (Acts of Pilate)
And so it is, that the early Christian church knew very well that it is a sin to make an oath.  Yet in today’s professing “Christian” church, the doctrine of not taking oaths is not taught correctly; if at all.  And it is this sin that produces our bondage, as it is in complete disobedience to the scriptures.  In fact, all sin produces the bondage to Satan, but it is the oath that is the primary error that produces so much chaos; because once a man is placed under the yoke of Satan he becomes utterly helpless becoming a slave to the dark-side.  The life of a man is destroyed and destined for hell; if he dies in the wealth of his sins.
And hell is a horrible place to spend an eternity.  It is so horrid, that I want to include some verses about it from both the Bible and other early Christian writings because it is extremely important to know the eternal consequences of sin; especially the oath.
“And being in hell in torments, he lifted up his eyes, and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom, Then he cried, and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue: for I am tormented in this flame.”
(Luke 16:24)
             Is the taking of an oath worth the eternal punishment?  “Wherefore if thine hand cause thee to offend, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life, maimed, than having two hands, to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched, Where their worm dieth not, and the fire never goeth out.”  (Mark 9:43-44)  Who needs that?  IS the taking of an oath worth becoming plagued with worms; being on fire for an eternity?  I don’t think most of us have the knowledge and understanding of the severity of God’s punishment.  It gets worse.
            In the Apocalypse of Peter (also included as scripture in the early church then removed) we find the following:  “And other men and women were burning up to the middle and were cast into a dark place and were beaten by evil spirits, and their inwards were eaten by restless worms: and these were they who persecuted the righteous and delivered them up.” (Apocalypse of Peter, Verse 25)  “And others near them, women and men, burning and turning themselves and roasting; and these were they that leaving the way of God.” (Apocalypse of Peter, Verse 33)
            The Book of Enoch is another writing used by the early Christian church.  And the following verse contained within it seems to coincide with the other writings:  “And darkness shall be their dwelling, and worms shall be their bed, and they will have no hope of rising from their beds, because they do not extol the name of the Lord of Spirits.” (Enoch 46:6)
            “And from thence I went to another place, which was still more horrible than the former, and I saw a terrible thing: A great fire there which burnt and blazed, and the place cleft as far as the abyss, being full of great magnitude could I see, nor could I conjecture.  Then I said: ‘How fearful is the place and how terrible to look upon!’  Then Uriel answered me, one of the holy angels who was with me: ‘Enoch, why hast thou such fear and affright?’  And I answered: ‘Because of this fearful place, and because of the spectacle of the pain.’” (Enoch 21:7-10)
             And finally, we see the following in the Book of Revelation: “And I looked and turned to another part of the earth, and saw there a deep valley with burning fire.  And they brought the kings and the mighty, and began to cast them into this deep valley”.  (Enoch 54:1-2)
I realize that these verses are painful to read, but at the same time, I believe that these verses should act as a deterrent to committing sin; especially that of making an oath.
            Is the power of government or being attached to it by the oath worth the price of eternal punishment?  “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever and ever: and they have no rest day or night....” (Revelation 14:11 KJV)
            “And the devil that deceived them, was cast into a lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet shall be tormented even day and night forevermore.” 
(Revelation 20:10)  Being on the receiving end of the wrath of God does not seem to be worth the price of everlasting punishment in hell: no matter how compelling the taking of an oath may appear.  “For what shall it profit a man, though he should win the whole world, if he lose his soul?  Or what exchange shall a man give for his soul?”   (Mark 8:36-37)
            Without a doubt, there is no profit to anyone who takes an oath.  It will only produce condemnation, and put a man under God’s curse.  So no matter what the political or religious gain that seems to come from disobeying God, there is nothing worse in life than losing one’s soul and going to hell.  Many religions like to deny the existence of hell, but the gospels clearly teach that it exists and that it is not a good place to go.  Those who ignore this warning from Jesus Christ, do so at their own risk.  There is no good thing that can come from a man taking an oath.  It is much easier to simply get rid of the stupid thing once and for all.  Taking an oath is not only dangerous, but it is downright stupid.  We’ve all done it at one time or another, and then we wonder why our government and religious systems are so twisted.  We do it to ourselves.  Satan doesn’t do it to us, we inflict upon ourselves untold hardship and pain by disobeying God.
          The oath makes our souls a slave to whatever entity to which we swore.  As our bodies in the flesh are vessels for the soul, we bind our souls, bodies, and spirits to the oath.  We now have gone from God’s natural order, to the chaotic and damnable “new world order” which is Satan’s world of death and hell.
           The swearing of oaths is God’s domain, as he created and held together His creation (the universe) by His oath.  And this can be observed in the Book of Enoch, Chapter 69:  “And the heaven was suspended before the world was created, and for ever.  And through it the earth was founded upon the water, and through that oath the sea was created, and through that oath the sun and the moon complete their course, and through that oath the stars complete their course.”
            It appears that the oath was intended to be under God’s authority.  And looking back to
Matthew 5: 33-37; those verses confirm that man cannot make one hair on his head white or black.  Man has no control over the natural color of his own hair.  (Think about how stupid it is to dye one’s hair one color or another.)  Man is not the creator; he is the created.  And any act of taking an oath appears to be an attempt by man to usurp the authority of God; or even worse, attempts to be God; which is impossible.
             And many “churches” who feign Christianity, teach that man can be a God, and perhaps the oath is the main instrument of choice of false teachers and Satanists in attempting to invoke the power of God unto themselves.  In Enoch, it shows how the fallen angels, bound themselves together by an oath; in an imprecation (curse), to repeal against God.  And it is the first example of the dire consequences of making oaths.
              Can a man stretch forth the heavens and the earth?  Can a man create the sea?  Can a man command the sun and the moon to complete their respective courses?  Can a man suspend the earth upon the firmament?  This is the reason why Christ said that man cannot make one hair on his own head white or black, let alone do those things I just mentioned.
              The depravity and the evilness of the oath cannot be overstated.  And it is a sobering thing to know and understand that swearing an oath puts a man or woman under a curse.  And given the ugly and devastating sanctions in hell, it doesn’t make any sense for anyone at any time, to swear an oath for any reason.
               Are there any exceptions?  No, none are given: there are no exceptions for any legal process, none for judges, none for lawyers, none for doctors, none for voter registration, none for government workers, none for the military, and none for any other activity.
              If the swearing of an oath is a sin, then it is scripturally clear that a man is under a curse and is destined for hell; if in fact he has sworn any oaths.  And we can see by our society today that it is sinking lower into its own degeneration at a very rapid pace.  And I believe that it is the use of the oath that is the primary tool Satan uses to destroy our lives, because once a man has put himself under an oath, nothing good can come from his live as he is under a curse.
           He can say he is a Christian, but if he hasn’t repented of his oaths, he cannot keep the rest of God’s commandments as he carries the yoke of sin and evil upon himself.  Remember, this is all self-inflicted.  God doesn’t do this to us, we do it by choice.  We can also chose to repent, amend our ways and stop swearing oaths.
            “What is man’s responsibility to God?  “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” (Ecclesiastes 12:13)  It is our duty as created men and women to fear God and keep His commandments.  We fear the Lord in the sense because He is our Creator, and he is going to judge us according to our actions, and the choices that we make.  And by knowing that the oath is a sin, it is great understanding that we repent of these oaths and never take one again.  Because we should know that the wages of sin is death.  The fear of God is what corrects our behavior and leads us to obedience; knowing that the wrath of God will be deployed against us if we continue to sin.
“The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord: all they that observe them, have good understanding: his praise endureth forever.” (Psalms 111:10 GB)
“Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, and delighteth greatly in his commandments.”
(Psalms 112:1GB)
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and knowledge.” (Proverbs 1:7 GB)
“The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom: and before honor goeth humility.”
(Proverbs 15:33 GB)
“The fear of the Lord is to hate evil, as pride and arrogancy, and the evil way: and a mouth that speak Eth lewd things I do hate.”  (Proverbs 8:13 GB)
“By mercy and truth iniquity shall be forgiven, and by the fear of the Lord they depart from evil.” (Proverbs 16:6 GB)
“What man is he that feareth the Lord? him will he teach the way that he shall choose.  His soul shall dwell at ease, and his seed shall inherit the land.” (Psalms 25:12-13 GB)
“Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord: for he is their helper, and their shield.” 
(Psalm 115:11 GB)
It is a great advantage that a man has a fear of the Lord.  He will have wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and mercy.  He will become strong in avoiding evil, pride, arrogancy, and will be able to put a bridle on his on his tongue.  With this fear of the Lord, he will be able to have the strength to avoid the iniquity of the oath.
And this fear of God, will lead him to repentance (never again to make an oath) enabling him to stop committing sins altogether.
The following verses in Ezekiel point out the elements of repentance.
“For when a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness and commiteth iniquity, he shall even die for the same, he shall even die for his iniquity that he hath done.  Again, when the wicked turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive. Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, and shall not die.” 
(Ezekial 18:26-28 GB)
“Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, everyone according to his ways, saith the Lord God: return therefore, and cause others to turn away from all your transgressions: so iniquity shall not be your destruction.”  (Ezekiel 18:30 GB)
And in Luke 13:3 Jesus Christ (God in the flesh), stated in the following verse: “I tell you, nay: but, except ye amend your lives,  ye shall all likewise perish.”  
It has been my experience, that a man must pay attention to the true scriptures and to turn away from the oath, and keep himself separated from any process that depends upon it.  The solution is quite simple; however, it is the choice of a man between good and evil that will determine his final eternal destiny. There is the spiritual destiny of heaven or hell; then, there is the temporal destiny (or the destiny of the man in the flesh) that will produce a life of peace, joy, and understanding.  Or the disobedience that produces chaos, sin, and turmoil which turns our lives upside down in relation to God’s natural order.  Again, God’s natural order is to fear Him and to keep His commandments.        
  The oath is Satan’s power supply to his “new world order.”  The oath destroys the life of men as it sets forth an imprecation (curse) upon the man who takes it.
The bad fruit of this imprecation is evil, sin, war, famine, idolatry, murder, lies, theft, maliciousness, jealousy, witchcraft, sorcery, and other bad things that are in disobedience to God’s commandments.
And in most “constitutions” in the various governments of the world, it is the oath that sets the stage for rampant evil.  It destroys the faith of God in men, and it produces the rotten characteristics of government.
Millions upon millions of people have been murdered as a result of the evil character of oath-based governments.  In my lifetime, I’ve seen many wars started on false premises.  The various governments lie and slander each other to the point of outrageous fury and madness.
The “laws” that are attached to such governments appear to be sensible in many cases; however, the practice of the legal process that is oath-based, produces lies, thefts, sin, and a multitude of flagrant contradictions.  It produces a dysfunctional process that it completely unstrung; like the sinews of a dead man.  It is like attempting to play a violin with broken strings. It breeds the most unseemly degeneration of a man’s moral anchor, interfering with his ability to stay within the limits of God’s natural order; His commandments.  The bad fruit always manifests itself upon those who take the oath.
The easy solution is to simply take no more oaths; and to repent of those oaths which we have taken.  Because we all know it is wrong to lie under any circumstance; so the oath is completely unnecessary for a Christian.  The same applies to statements made “under the penalties of perjury.”
Perjury is lying under oath.  I see no difference in lying under oath, or without an oath.  A lie is a lie, and by speaking falsely, a man puts himself under condemnation.
Sin is what puts man under bondage; the yoke of Satan.  It is this bondage that manifests itself in everything we do.  Liberty is being free from the bondage of sin, and living in obedience to God’s word, statutes, and commandments.
I believe that it is the oath that has started all of the evil of mankind.  It is the oath that makes it impossible to keep all of God’s commandments all of the time, because the taking of an oath is a sin; in and of itself.  It is the oath that triggers evil in the machinations of the world’s governments.  It is the oath that renders the legal process utterly useless, because it is not capable of honesty, truth, and justice.  How can a cursed process do anything good?  It cannot.  While there may be a show of justice: the reality is that the whole picture when looked at objectively; is unstrung.
The beast (the world governments and financial institutions) depend upon the oath to control mankind.  Remember, the oath is a man’s bondage to sin, making him an asset of hell.  And those of us who are caught up in this bondage, have done this out of ignorance and false teachings.  Unfortunately, most of us have been led down the wrong path; we arrived at the wrong place.
No man can live successful; living a blessed life, die and go to heaven, with the unrepented sin of making an oath.  The oath (and signing documents under the penalties of perjury) casts a man under a curse; and it is this curse that renders a man incapable of being obedient to God’s commandments.
And it is the failure of the feigned “Christian” church that fuels this chronic disobedience.  It is a sobering thought to realize just how damaging the making of an oath is to any man; let alone to a Christian.
And this failure may have many causes, and there are a few worth mentioning.
It appears to me that the main reason is that there are those people in the “church” who explain away the clear and precise teaching of Christ not to swear any oaths.  “Christian” commentators state this does not mean that a man cannot swear in courtroom proceedings, or other legal matters.  However, within the text of the scriptures we can clearly see that there are no exceptions for any legal process.  The sad part about this is the fact that those of us who were deceived by their false teaching of exceptions that do not exist, suffer from our own ignorance as we go down the road to hell; never realizing the damage we have done to ourselves.  We, who are lead away by false teachings will suffer unspeakable consequences.
In the First Epistle of Clement, to the Corinthian church, he warns them stating: “Look carefully into the scriptures, which are the true utterances of the Holy Spirit.  Observe that nothing of an unjust or counterfeit character is written in them.”  (1st Clement Chapter 45)
One of the problems of the Corinthian church, is that there were those who were tampering with the true scriptures in order to get them to say something that was never intended by the Holy Spirit.  I question everything that I read.  I use everything that I believe is truth.
It doesn’t matter to me whether it comes from the Bible, or anywhere else, only the truth is of any service to me.  And in reflecting on Clement’s warnings, I keep asking myself as to what motivation would there be for a church which has already gone apostate, produce a clean and accurate set of scriptures.  I have no reason to believe that they did actually did that, and I believe that the Bible as we know it has been mangled by the apostates.  The true scriptures are still there,  it is just more difficult to get to the truth than I had originally thought.  A man has to use his own ability to reason out these doctrines, so that he knows exactly what his duties are to God.
But the teachings against the oath had to be a direct threat to the power of the state.  The “state” (as a group) wants to usurp the authority of God and place itself in His place.  The state is not God; the state is not the Creator, and man was not created by the state.  Religion did not create God; God created man and gave him the right to choose for himself who or what he is going to follow.  But it is the combination of bad government and bad religion that promulgates the usage of the oath; to it’s own eventual destruction.
The oath is the self-destructive power source of the new world order on two levels:
1. On the temporal level it is the conduit to complete slave status of men to the state or existing government.  2. On the spiritual level, it is the curse (primary ticket to hell) that leads men into bondage of sin and damnation.  It is the spiritual connection to the beast, to the “great whore of Bablyon;” and to eternal punishment and torture.
And while Christians should be obedient to governments, it is never allowed in the scriptures to violate any of God’s commandments for any reason.  It is God’s law that is the “supreme law of the land”, but never is it any man-made government law.  Governments which violate God’s laws will suffer the same destruction as those who continually sin against God with no repentance.  Lawful government only exists within the boundaries of God’s law.
A good example of this is when the King of Egypt ordered the midwives to kill all of the sons of the Hebrew women, and just let the daughters live.  And in Exodus 1:17 we see the following: “But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.”  Given that the oath is a sin (a sin of idolatry) there is no reason for anyone to feel compelled to take an oath, because no one is compelled to disobey God's law. There may be some inconvenient consequences to this resistance; but not enough to justify putting oneself under a curse.
So much then for defendant the problem; now for the solution.  The solution is this; fear God and keep His commandments.
Who is God?  “Thus saith God the Lord(he that created the heavens and spread them abroad: he that stretched for the earth, and the buds thereof: he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein).
Jesus Christ is God in the flesh, and remember, He is the one who said not to swear any oaths.  Here’s some evidence that show He is God in the flesh:
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Gen. 1:1)
“In the beginning was that Word, and that Word was with God, and that Word was God.” (John 1:1 GB)
And that Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw the glory thereof, as the glory of the only begotten Son of the Father) full of grace and truth.”  (John 1:14)
There is no question that Jesus Christ is God, and those who oppose this critical teaching are terribly misinformed and are completely idiotic in their reasoning.  No one with half a brain, could possibly say that the scripture say something other that Christ is God in the flesh.  Christ, being God, specifically said not to swear oaths, so it only makes sense to stop doing it.  In my opinion, there always is a hope of repentance, the hope of establishing more self-control, and the hope of defeating sin.  We choose sin; and when we do it, we created the chains to our own bondage.  Disobeying God’s commandments is not freedom, it is self-inflicted bondage of the lowest order.
The oath will inflict a spiritual and temporal nightmare upon a man that is detestable.  It puts a man on the dark-side; it puts the government on the dark-side.  And because the oath exists outside of God’s natural order, the oath is the power source of the “new world order” which is altogether senseless.

It has been said by many, that the United States was a nation based upon “Christian principles.”  And that somehow the United States lost its moral and spiritual anchor, and is now irreparably corrupted.  However, the distinction should be made that there is a difference between the Government of the United States and the men, women, and children living on the land.  They are two separate things, and it is the government, or what is being passed off as one, who has decided to usurp God’s law, rather than abide in His commandments.
But the fact is that the United States Constitution at Article VI proves by its own text that it is impossible that true scriptural Christians had anything to do with establishing the United States government as we know it today.  The reason is it has an oath: “...The Senators and representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislators, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation to support this constitution....”
Here we see an example of the use of the oath for all government officials.  I believe that the use of these oaths is the catalyst that sets into motion the moral corruption that we have seen in our government in the past and now see in the present.  It doesn’t matter what the particular issue is; because it is the oath that brings on the lying, stealing, and devastating wars that get millions of people killed; all in the name of freedom, which is in reality, Satanic bondage.
Are there any Christians in government?  The answer is obvious to me; it would be a resounding no.  They are what they do; if they take an oath, then  they are not Christians.  There is always the opportunity for repentance for anyone; but once the repentance and belief in Jesus Christ takes place, then it would be spiritually impossible to work for the government and be a true Christian at the same time.  A man cannot drink from the cup of the Lord and the cup of the devil at the same time.
I remember somewhere around 1980 I had begun to read the Bible and believe in Jesus Christ.  But I was also a registered voter.  Registered voters have to swear an oath in order to participate in the elections.  What that means is that I was under the curse of the oath.  And twenty-two years later, I ran for Congress (one of my most shameful acts) and yet again, I was under the curse of the oath, as every candidate must swear an oath before running for office. Therefore, it is impossible to stay in God’s favor and run for political office if an oath is involved.  It seems to me that the best way for this country to get back on track is to eliminate the oath, and put government back under the authority of God’s commandments.
I hadn’t grasped the gravity of taking an oath until October of 2005 when I found the Zephaniah and Zechariah verses mentioned earlier in this article.
Whether I knew it or not; the fact is that I committed an offense against God and I put myself under a curse.  I have subsequently repented and will not take any more oaths for any reason; I don’t want to offend God any more.  If I love God, then I must keep His commandments.  Anything else is just “happy” talk with no action.
In addition to the governments of the world swearing oaths of allegiance the two main
professing Christian churches engage in the same nonsense.  This will also help to explain the almost complete corruption most of us can observe in these two organizations.  The oath is an integral part of the feudal system that is still in place to this day.  The government and the false religions of the world use the oath.  The oath puts them on the dark-side and the evidence of it can be observed every day; we just have to recognize it for what it is and then deal with it.
       Now it makes more sense why most politicians and religious leaders act like jerks.  They act that way because that is who they are; people with a complete disrespect for God and his commandments.  And it begins and ends with the oath.  If the oath was removed from the Constitution, the document might actually work for the benefit of mankind; but with the oath,  it is worthless and it renders the Constitution weak and ineffective in getting good results for mankind.  Again, the reason is because the documents that use the oath are on the dark-side, and nothing works correctly on the dark-side unless the goal intended is evil.
The governments and religions of the world are evil on purpose.  And while most of us have been deceived by all of it, the truth is that the problem of discerning between good and evil can be a daunting experience, especially, when the scriptures have been corrupted.  So one is left with his ability to reason what is actually true or not true, but the problem is that the men of today do have have the ability nor the desire to use their ability to reason.  It is much easier for them to watch TV, surf the net, or play video games; effectively desensitizing themselves from all of the various moral choices a man has to make throughout a day.  By dumbing down his own mind, mankind renders himself to be as useless as the material he is using.  He can no longer think for himself, but allows others to make important life decisions that he should be making himself.
  The oath is one of the easiest things not to do.  It is much easier to refuse to take them.  A government which suggests the swearing of oaths, is a government that is a very bad religious organization.   There isn’t any benefit for a man to swear oaths; all bad things flow from the oath.  A very dumb government will think it is smarter than Jesus Christ.
