Swearing in the Lord's Name (LD 37; Genesis 31:36-55) | 2012 Catechism Sermons

I remember being a kid and asking my parents why people swore on the Bible. It seems so strange to hold your hand on a book and swear that you will tell the truth. Why do we do that? Where do we see a precedent or an example of people doing this in the Bible? Why would we want to take such an oath where we bind ourselves to be avenged by God if we fail to keep the promise? ? If you are curious about these questions please stay tuned to our sermon titled, “Swearing in the Lord’s Name.”
