Chapter 20 » 20.49

Honesty and integrity

Oaths and affirmation

And they gave me the Book, and I took it and was turning to a place that was against swearing, and they took it from me again and bid me say after the clerk. So I told them, if they would prove that Christ and the apostles commanded to swear after they had forbidden it, give us scripture for this, and we would swear. It was Christ’s command that we should not swear.

George Fox, 1664
