Rant: IT'S NO JOKE!!!

This Thursday, at my swim team, some kids were having this "Sibling-name-guessing-game."  This kid named Rea, however, was taking it a lot more seriously. 

We all knew her sister's name was Maya.  Ok? So. 

Kid: Is it Maya? :-O
Rea: NO!!!!  DD:<
Me: O rly?  ;-)
Rea: No. >.<
Other kid: O rly?
Rea: NO I SWEAR!!!!! DDD:<<<
Rea: ~psst~ Maya don't tell them your name. }:)
Me: -.-
Rea: Maya your name is Janet ok?
Me: What's the first letter? :-?
Rea: M!! :-\
Other kid: Second?
Maya: A!!! ;-DD
Rea: Her name is Janet. ]:0
Me: No it's not.
Maya: It's ----
Rea: I'll give you licorice if you don't tell them.
Maya: :-P
Maya: IT"S MAYA!!!
Me: Mhm.
Me: And Rea, you can stop swearing now cause' everyone knows that your swears are "JUST LIES, AND MORE CONTRADICTION"

By now you probably can tell that Rea isn't exactly my best friend.  You know what? Two things, first, DON'T SWEAR.  Period. Questions?  You realize that swears are vows to God.  The Bible says:
  1. Matthew 5:36
    And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black.
  2. James 5:12
    Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. All you need to say is a simple “Yes” or “No.” Otherwise you will be condemned.

In 1st and 2nd Samuel, David and Saul would swear not to kill people and not to destroy their nation, not just this "Her name isn't Maya".  ESPECIALLY lying. GOD HATES LYING OK?  And GOD HATES SWEARING. So, what happens when you add the two???

And this is more a a personal part.  First, IT"S A GAME. Why incur God's wrath in tic tac toe? Ok. Just a joke.  Why would she give out her sister's name even though  she was trying to keep it secret?  And if her sister's name starts with a "M" then IT"S NOT "JANET".   And they're Indian.  Her name is Rea.  Rea and Janet? BEETHOVEN AND BOB???  There's side effects too.  Dishonesty.  Skipping laps, cheating on drills ect...

Swearing is serious.  Lying is serious.  Swearing and Lying is VERY serious.  It's already obvious nobody trusts her.  Her swearing doesn't get much more than a -.-   
Your reputation is EVERYTHING you do.  How, where, why, attitude, the words and phrases you use...  Your mouth is pretty much 45% of your personality.  And no. Wearing lipstick won't help.
