Maxim Monday: Do not use an oath

A working knowledge of Greek would be helpful in this endeavour to explore the Maxims. I’m guessing an oath is making a promise, or swearing by something or some one, a deity perhaps. I would agree that is unwise. If an oath means a ‘swear’ word, well…. I fucking love swearing. I would like to get out of the habit of taking Christ’s name ‘in vain,’ as I think it is disrespectful, even though I do not personally honor him; it’s disrespectful to Jesus himself, but also to the many, many people who love and adore him, some of those people are my friends and family!

Yes, so don’t make promises you can’t keep. Don’t swear on your mother’s grave. Unwise. Very, very unwise.
