Oops, I Didn't Mean to Swear

Updated: Oct 20, 2022

Divine Code for October 12, 2022

Today: Page 225

Topic 3:15 -- 3:19

If one swears or promises, and then rescinds his oath in a short period of time (equal to the time required to say, "Peace unto you, my teachter"), and says "I regret it", or something similar, he has been released from his oath, it was clearly a mistake.

Likewise if others told him "Rconsider it" and he verbally accepts their words immediately by saying "yes" the vow is not binding. If a certain physical action also counts as a promise, it is also valid as a verbal promise.

In all cases, a promise must be renounced verbally; a thought alone is not enough.
