Swearing oaths

Speaking of sacred cows:
Have any of you ever been a witness in a court case and sworn (sometimes with your left hand on a bible), to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?

Doesn’t that violate this?

Mat 5:34 But I tell you not to swear at all, neither by heaven, because it is God’s throne,
Mat 5:35 nor by the earth, because it is his footstool, nor by Jerusalem, because it is the city of the Great King.
Mat 5:36 Nor should you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black.
Mat 5:37 Instead, let your word be ‘Yes’ for ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ for ‘No.’ Anything more than that comes from the evil one."

Just thought I’d throw that out for comment. I’ve been seriously thinking that if I ever have to testify again I’ll tell the judge that I can’t – on religious grounds. Wonder what would happen.

Pacifism

So I wanna be a pacifist, but it doesn’t come easy. I think I have a handle on it, and then I have these kinda conversations, and I just wanna kill a man (yes rage against the machine starts playing in my head)
This is a conversation about some girls that were recently rescued from some sex exploitation

I really work at being a pacifist
but things like that…..well I’d be a lapsed pacifist

So how do we pray for our enemies, turn the other cheek, humble ourselves to them, and seek only good for them, when they are monsters of this caliber?

How do you tell what gender other users are?

I do not know how to tell what gender some users are.

Did we put gender in when we register I forgot if we did?

Is there a way to look up someones gender?
