L; '~ Let’s Reason Together By Alton Norman Owingsville Church of Christ Oaths (3) Moses’ Law said, “When you make a vow to the Lord your God, you shall not delay to pay it; for they Lord your God will surely require it of you, and it would be a sin toyou’i (Deuteronomy 23:32). But Jesus said, “Swear not‘at ' all...(simply) let your ‘yes’ be yes and your ‘no’ be no, for whatever is more than these is from the evil one” (Matthew 5:33-37). Why didJesus change the Law of jMoses? Perhaps the Vintage School Memo- ries From The Good old Days by Kathleen Perry A younger friend told me that I’m not old....I’m “vin- tage”. I like that. It also like to talk about the, “good old days”. Doesn’t everybody? Take school, for exam- ‘ plei- With our local schools all set to begin the school year in a few days on Au- , gust 9th, it makes one won- der what was wrong with the start-up-day being the day after Labor-Day-week— end many years ago. I be- lieve that every year of my schooling, grades 1-12, that’ s the way it was. That’s practically a month’s difference in thenandnow.“ School was a joy for me, and- even though Phat} to walk a mile every day com- ing, and going, I hardly ever missed a day! I don’t remember but very few days that the school was closed on account of bad weather either. One of my favorite “good old. days” memories is when I learned to read. Jews of Jesus’ day were just like we are when it comes to oaths, vows, and saying, “I solemnly swear. . .”. Sometimes during my lunch break, I watch “Peo- ple’s Court” on TV. The show claims to be a real court case and each one begins with both “parties raising their right hand and swearing to tell the truth. But one of the litigants is lying, and the judge must decide which one lied un- der oath. Perjury is crime punishable under law, but people regularly solemnly Just seeing those ABC’s turn into words, and then ‘ into sentences, changed my life forever! I still love to read and am still fasci- nated by all the places it takes me! . My early school days have left me with many memories. For instance, one frosty fall morning my brother Dink, who is a cou- ple of years older than me, took an “empty” hor- net’s‘nest to school. Imag- ine the excitement when the school room warmed up and so did the “empty” hornets nest! It’s funny now but not-so back then! I think I was in the fifth or sixth grade when I had a problem with two bigger girls who got their kicks :5: put of making my life mis- erable at recess. (Nowa- .._.naays it’s called bullying, an age old problem.) But I handled it myself. Idon’t know Where I got the 3 cents for a postage stamp, but I wrote and mailed a letter to our School Super- intendent, (you all know who she was), describing my problem.

Very few people tell the truth to their own hurt; but if one would en- ter the presence of God, he would have to “swear to his own hurt and not change” (Psalm 15:1-5). A simple “yes” or “no” told truthfully is better than a lie spoken . under oath. The Jews of Jesus’ day were just like us — they swore to God and then made loopholes to allow for lies.‘They said, “Whoever swears by the temple, it is VER THE HIL I were called inside to the teacher’s desk Where we had a letter read to us from the Superintendent. Those girls never bothered me again. The one thing I learned from that little epi- sode was to “go to the top”. Another memory is the following. For days we had studied the States and their Capitols. Test day came and went. Abreeze. Imag- ine my surprise when I got my test paper back with ONE incorrect answer. For Kentucky I had written Franklin instead of Frank- fort. I can laugh about it now, but not then. ‘ Our little rural school, nothing; but who swears by the gold of the temple, he is obligated to perform it...but Jesus said, He who swears by the temple swears by it and by Him who dwells in it” (Matthew 23:16—22). In the context of Matthew chapter 23, Jesus said people who take oaths frivolously are “blind fools” and hypocrites. Oh, how foolish we are to think we can lie to men and be pleasing to God! Thank you for reason- ing with me. Cold Cave near Scran- ton, had a lunchroom in it where I was called on often to help get the lunch ready. On rare occasions we had big cabbage heads which had to be cut up really thin to make coleslaw. That was my job. For my assistance in the lunch room I was giv- en a free lunch! Saved my family ten cents every day! The old Cold Cave School building is gone now, thanks to Cave Run Lake, but I still have mem- ories that not even a lake can wash away or cover up! Don’t you?
