Getting To The Heart Of Truthfulness

June 21, 2020 • Jonny Mellor

After Jesus' very direct teaching on anger and lust, he moves on in Matthew 5:33-37, to the seemingly niche topic of vows and oaths. In this message, Jonny explains why, rather than being a lull in the action, this teaching is very important and very relevant to us today.
