Telling the Truth

From Series: Faith That Works, Volume 4

James 5:12  (ID: 2613)

The Bible calls Christians to avoid using deceitful language. Instead, a Christian’s use of words should be trustworthy, clear, and genuine. Alistair Begg shows us that God’s law proves us guilty of abusing our mouths, but God has provided a way of escape through Christ.


12But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.
