A key committee in the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is moving to eliminate the God reference from the oath administered to witnesses testifying before the panel, as part of a new rules package expected to be approved this week, according to a draft obtained exclusively by Fox News.
The draft shows that the House Committee on Natural Resources would ask witnesses to recite only, "Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?"
The rules proposal places the words "so help you God" in red brackets, indicating they are slated to be cut. The words "under penalty of law" are in red text, indicating that Democrats propose to add that phrasing to the oath....
âTo him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy â to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.â Jude 1:24-25
In some sense the path to heaven is safe. But in other respects there is no road as dangerous; it is overrun with difficulties.
One false step (and how easy it is to step absently if grace is absent), and down we go. What a slippery path some of us tread! How many times have we cried along with the Psalmist, âMy feet were almost gone, my steps had well nigh slipped.â If we were strong, sure-footed mountaineers, this would not matter so much; but relying on our own abilities, how weak we are! In the best roads we soon falter, in the smoothest paths we quickly stumble. A straw may throw us, and a pebble can wound us; we are mere children tremblingly taking our first steps in the walk of faith. Thankfully our heavenly Father holds us by the arms or we would soon fall all the way back down!
As I read in Plutarch, even ancient pagans believed that violating an oath was an offense to the gods. Anglo-Saxons levied heavy fines on oath-breakers. And those who respect the Decalogue keep oaths on the grounds of the 3rd Commandment, and with Christians, the Beatitudes as well.
But a nation of flakes who do not fear any god may as well take no oath at all. Or if they have a god, it's their bellies.

Democrat Representative Jefferson Van Drew of New Jersey, a member of the committee, said in a statement that it would be âhurtful and harmfulâ for the committee âto go out of our way to take it out.â .... "All of these trappings of religion and God in these oaths certainly have not kept an awful lot of people from lying under oath,â stated Rep. Huffman, as reported by EWTN.

Certainly and some aspects it was a good idea that fox shown a light on the subject.
"The Fox News report notes that many federal oaths include the phrase, but some, including the presidential oath of office, do not."--- https://tinyurl.com/ycszf74d (Key House panel proposes to have 'so help you God' removed from oath)
Some Presidents might be highly offended if it was said there was any One greater than themselves! It seems to me some have denied that they needed help from God or need to ask his forgiveness?
Satanic Liberalism is trying to remove all references to God and Scripture in the nations.
Democrats being a satanic party they are bound to think along these lines, with Satan's help.
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
Note; Jesus teaches:- Matt 5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: 35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. 36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. 37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil."
