Understanding Vows

Oaths and Vows are an important part of the Christian life, yet they are widely ignored in our day.

Learn about Oaths and Vows

We have discussed oaths elsewhere. Our nation is experiencing profound crises because our political leaders do not respect oaths.

In our own lives, we experience problems because we do not understand the power of a vow. This page introduces the subject of personal vows.

1. See how Christians in days past advocated vows.

2. Learn about "Personalizing Scripture."
Making every verse in Scripture a commitment to God.
4. The "Prophetic Present Tense" - Don't say "I will," say "I do."
For developing habits and character ("I will" is appropriate for specific actions at specific times)
5. Compare vow-taking and acting.
Fulfill your vows even if you don't "feel" like it.

These are the major features of a program which can help you develop the character of Christ. Developing Godly character is the most pressing task of Christians today. While most people absorb the values of the world on TV, architects of global dictatorship are putting the finishing touches on their tower of transnational finance and political control. If we are to "be not ye the slaves of men" (1 Corinthians 7:23) we must put to death the slave-mentality and cultivate the character of Christ's dominion.
