Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Mean What You Say”, based on Matthew 5:33-37.

  • Oaths and vows became a way for people to lie.
  • If people swore “by God”, then they were answerable to God.
  • If people sower “by heaven” or “by Jerusalem”, they could get away with lying.
  • Jesus said to mean what you say.
  • Jesus said to not swear at all, just simply tell the truth all the time.
  • Let your “yes” be a real “yes”, and your “no” be a real “no.  Don’t make it conditional.
