“Not to swear in the presence of witnesses. Exod. 10:22”
Not to swear in the church?
The scriptures clearly say not to swear in church! The New Testament tells us that all persons that go to church are to be on the same level. This is very important as “church” is not synonymous with “assembly of people”. There is no assembly in the church. The Holy Spirit has not come to people’s house to teach them in the Holy Spirit. Rather, there are only meetings which have been established to receive and teach, those being done by our bishop, those being done by elders, those being done by the whole church. So what? People can disagree about what meetings will be most necessary. In fact, God is not pleased with anyone with an opinion that isn’t in the Holy Spirit. (Deut. 26:18-21; Acts 18:1-11) If there are disagreements, please seek counsel from the elders and from our deacons. You’ll need their counsel if you find that you’re unsure and need guidance.

In my wife’s family we didn’t swear until she was 16 years old.

Why do you think people swear in church? What does that mean?
It is because there is something called “church” in the Bible. And, as you can tell by the words the word church appears several times in the Old Testament, it can be used to describe the gathering of people to worship God or the body of Christ. In a sense, it’s like a religious congregation.
A church is one that meets or gathers people together in its worship and worship is one of the main parts of the church’s function. The New Testament gives us an amazing teaching about this:
Now the law came down from Moses, saying, ‘You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a
