Today our courts make people swear with one hand on the Bible, an unnecessary step if you ask me, it would only be effective if, say, a person’s hand immediately shriveled up while lying on the stand. But the fact is swearing with one’s hand on the Bible is not an acid test; plenty of people have perjured themselves. One should always tell the truth and not be expected to only tell the truth while in court.
But sorry to say that not only does “under cover” work require law enforcement to lie, but there are far too many stories of them lying on the stand, or being the only witness to a crime. This is especially heinous when the “crime” is possessing God’s plants, or sharing them with other adults.
There are also far too many stories of humans using a dog as the sole witness.
Please pray for them, they are destroying their souls.
Jesus refers to this passage as well: Matthew 18:16.
