When one pledges a duty to God, they make a pact between themselves and God.
It does not matter the position that one acquires when they take this oath and swear their allegiance to God. And an oath never goes away, how could it? Maybe the duty is over, but the pact between one and God remains. When one utters the words so help me God they pledge their life and honor to uphold that oath! An oath to God is the most sacred oath one can ever make. It should never be made lightly, as one binds their soul to it.
It is ones’ life/soul up against the promise that they made to God. If one breaks the pact, because of government pressure, as we have witnessed with FBI Director Comey. Surely he will lose their soul and should his life, as he voilated a trust with the American people.
Oaths are pretty simple to understand, when one pledges their allegiance to God.
Director Comey took this oath of service:
“I [name] do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
How one can violate this oath is beyond me. They would have had to have lost their Faith in God as it is clear that a violation of this oath puts ones soul/life into jeopardy.
An Oath is an honored and sacred pact with God. Don’t make it if you don’t intend to keep it!
