Is Taking An Oath Biblical???
We have all been monstrously deceived. All truth in Jesus:the Christ. I see that a profound truth has been lost on us bible believers, Namely the swearing of oaths. http://www.no-debts.com/anti-federalist/
Some unwittingly swear to defend Satan's kingdom;the USA.
Others sign contracts,promises,agreements and swear to ''tell'' the truth. (mortgage ,creditcard ,tax returns &c.)
“You can’t contract with Caesar. You have to get the people FREE of Caesar, you CANNOT sign up as a ‘REGISTERED VOTER’ and be a ‘citizen’ because when you have done that you have now taken on a CORPORATE IDENTITY with a CORPORATE ENTITY, a ‘Fiction in Law’ and you have agreed that ‘The legislature’ is the SOURCE of all your rights and the ‘creator’ is the source of everyone’s rights.
All of our unalienable rights come from our creator and you CANNOT sign a contract with Caesar and have “the Legislature” grant you all these immunities and privileges because that’s what we’re reaping today. We’re being destroyed from within because WE unknowingly and unwittingly have signed up with government to provide us all of these “Benefits” and of course the court has ruled that if you accept a benefit –
Quit taking the benefit. When you sign up and you go in to ‘Vote’ for these people, unwittingly and unknowingly, when you signed up to “Register” to vote, you have signed up for who you want to ‘REPRESENT YOU’ to HAND DOWN your rights. When you sign up with the registered voters, you have WAIVED ALL OF YOU UNALIENABLE RIGHTS and in reality what you have done is you have WAIVED YOUR BIRTHRIGHT – you SOLD your Birthright.”
Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Mark 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Ignoring that, let's see how we should swear:
Matthew 5:33-37 Again, ye have heard that it hath 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. (also 38-42) And....
James 5:12 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.
So we can't swear an oath, OK, what about telling the truth?
Can we know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Methinks you would lie or perjure from the first breath. Unless you are perfect of course.
Genesis 32:10 I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.
Deuteronomy 32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
1 Kings 17:24 And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth.
2 Chronicles 18:15 And the king said to him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou say nothing but the truth to me in the name of the LORD?
Sounds like the king is compelling him to tell the truth in the name of the LORD. Does this happen in court? Don't think so.
So should not your answer be:
"Your honour, if you wish me to swear upon this good book and proclaim the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, methinks my name would be inside it, not my hand upon it."
Numbers 30:2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.
1 Kings 2:43 Why then hast thou not kept the oath of the LORD, and the commandment that I have charged thee with?
Ecclesiastes 8:2 I counsel thee to keep the king's commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God.
Ezekiel 21:23 And it shall be unto them as a false divination in their sight, to them that have sworn oaths: but he will call to remembrance the iniquity, that they may be taken.
Hebrews 6:16 For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife.
"Can I be compelled to violate the HIGHER LAW of the creator in order to take an Oath, which I am NOT allowed to do as it is in violation of the HIGHER LAW"
“Let EVERYMAN remain subject to the HIGHER LIBERTY for there is NO LIBERTY but of God. All LIBERTY is OF GOD! Governments are NOT ordained; governments are there to PUNISH the people for having CREATED the government. God didn’t create those governments. God didn’t go down and get a 3 party Marriage contract licence to marry with the State – The people do that, and they go UNDER authority. Let everyman remain subject to the HIGHER RIGHT TO CHOOSE.
"Let every man be subject to the HIGHER LIBERTY because liberty ONLY COMES FROM GOD, not man!"
What the actual translation of Romans 13 is, below, taken from the original text.
"Let every soul be subject to the HIGHER LIBERTY, for there is no LIBERTY but of God, so whoever resists this LIBERTY resists the ordinance of God".
Please note that the original text translates into the word "Liberty", not "authority" or "Power". as they want you to believe you must obey the govt. Please also note that NOT all governments are ordained of God. Romans 13 also applies to Civil Government.
