Craig Verdouw, Keeping the Commands of Christ, Sermon

I swear to tell the Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth

 December 3, 2021

By Craig Verdouw

Honesty is the best policy (William Shakespeare); A half truth is a whole lie (Yiddish proverb); When you lie, you steal someone's right to the truth (Kaled Hosseini). These are all true, but here's a quote that carried more weight: "God hates... a lying tongue" (Solomon - Proverbs). This week we're looking at one line: Do not give False Testimony. As always, we'll see that the command is good, and holy, and helpful, and loving. As always, we'll see that we don't want to keep it. As always, we'll see Jesus kept the command perfectly, and he can help us do the same.

Bible Readings: Exodus 20:16. James 3:2-12.
