When one reads God's Word, oft times they run across the
words Vow and Oath.
What are Christian Vows and what is a Christian Oath?
Are Christian Vows and a Christian Oath the same thing?
Oath ... is swearing or promising
about something or to perform something, whether it be made
to or by God or man.
God's Old and New Covenants are laws and
guidelines with a vow of PROMISE ... IF mankind abided or
will abide by said Covenant.
Mankind often made vows to God in the
is an example ...
And Jacob vowed a vow,
saying, If God will be with me, and
will keep me in this way that I go, and will
give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, So that I
come again to my father's house in peace; then
shall the LORD be my God: And this stone, which I
have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of
all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the
tenth unto thee.
Mankind, over the years has vowed (Promised or swore) that

are special rules when it comes women to making vows.
If a woman also
vow a vow
unto the LORD, and bind herself by a bond, being in
her father's house in her youth; And her father hear
her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath bound her
soul, and her father shall hold his peace at her; then
all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she
hath bound her soul shall stand. But if her father
disallow her in the day that he heareth; not any of
her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her
soul, shall stand: and the LORD shall forgive her,
because her father disallowed her. And if she had at
all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered ought out
of her lips, wherewith she bound her soul; And her
husband heard it, and held his peace at her in the day
that he heard it: then her vows shall stand, and her
bonds wherewith she bound her soul shall stand. But if
her husband disallowed her on the day that he heard
it; then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and
that which she uttered with her lips, wherewith she
bound her soul, of none effect: and the LORD shall
forgive her. But every vow of a widow, and of her that
is divorced, wherewith they have bound their souls,
shall stand against her. And if she vowed in her
husband's house, or bound her soul by a bond with an
oath; And her husband heard it, and held his peace at
her, and disallowed her not: then all her vows shall
stand, and every bond wherewith she bound her soul
shall stand. But if her husband hath utterly made them
void on the day he heard them; then whatsoever
proceeded out of her lips concerning her vows, or
concerning the bond of her soul, shall not stand: her
husband hath made them void; and the LORD shall
forgive her. Every vow, and every binding oath to
afflict the soul, her husband may establish it, or her
husband may make it void. But if her husband
altogether hold his peace at her from day to day; then
he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds, which
are upon her: he confirmeth them, because he held his
peace at her in the day that he heard them. But if he
shall any ways make them void after that he hath heard
them; then he shall bear her iniquity. These are the
statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses, between a
man and his wife, between the father and his daughter,
being yet in her youth in her father's house.

CHRISTIAN VOWS WARNING
CHRISTIAN OATH DANGER
expanded on the Vow and Oath laws ...
Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by
them of old time, Thou shalt not
shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
I say unto you, Swear not at all;
neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: Nor by the
earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem;
for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt
thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make
one hair white or black. But let your communication
be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than
these cometh of evil.
Therefore ... Jesusshows us thatforswearing or promising
to perform a VOW ahead of timeand adding an OATH such as
swearing (Vowing) by Heaven or God's Throne or anything else
shouldconcern themselves with making vows by an oath ...

fall into condemnation.
We see that making vows and oaths is SERIOUS business.
me to share one more story ...
And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou
shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine
hands, Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the
doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from
the children of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD's, and I
will offer it up for a burnt offering ...
WITHOUT BEING ASKED TO BY GOD ... Jephthah
swore that if God would help him win a war, that he would
sacrifice whatever entered his house, probably thinking one
of his sheep or cattle would. Well, they did win the war
Jephthah spoke of and then ... He went home.
Letís find out what entered his home.
And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and, behold, his
daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and with dances:
and she was his only child; beside her he had neither son
nor daughter. And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he
rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter! thou hast
brought me very low, and thou art one of them that trouble
me: for I have OPENED MY MOUTH unto the LORD, and I cannot
When he got home, his DAUGHTER entered that
door and he was obligated to keep his vow. He kept his vow
but you know he learned a VERY important lesson ...
But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by
heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but
let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into
