“Above all, my brothers, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. Let your “Yes” be yes, and your “No,” no, or you will be condemned.” James 5:12
There is no one who can boldly says he has never swear in his life. Everyone swears and everybody believes that’s the way of life. For a born again Christian, this should not be a way of life because the moment you are in Christ, then your attitude should change.
You don’t have the right to live your life as if you don’t care about God. It is your duty to live your Christian life in a proper way, and one of these is to avoid swearing.
You need to come to the point in your life that you must let your word be as you said it. Do not indulge in lying or swearing because these are not the attribute of the child of God. You are to let your ‘YES’ be exactly ‘YES’ and your ‘NO’ be exactly ‘NO.’ When you are doing this, people in your world or around you or far from you, when they see you, they would be able to differentiate you from those in the world.
Your words determine the person you are and of course, these determines your relationship with the Lord. It may be that you have not realised how sinful this is, I would like you to stop it! Stop swearing! Stop lying! Stop turning your ‘YES’ to be your ‘NO.’ You can’t live your life in between, which is living today for Christ and living tomorrow for the devil. It is not possible.
May I ask you: “Who are you?”
