Default Re: Swearing the Oath on the Sacred Holy Bible

In a past life where I sometimes had occasion to talk to people requiring them to have taken an oath or affirmation, I noted the legislation actually referred to a "holy book". Though a team bible got me by.


The only time I have ever had to take an oath or make an affirmation myself was, a little like SEG, joining the Army Reserve. In those days I churched hard and so I actually took the affirmation on the basis that the Bible says not to take oaths. Go figure.
