You have all heard the old adage: O, what a tangled web we weave, when first we try to deceive. Unfortunately, lying has become the tool of the day. We use lies to get what we want. This is called selfishness. People just don’t understand how much damage lies can do. Again, telling the truth requires a certain amount of trust in your life. Being able to tell the truth, requires courage on our part. I have had confidences used as a bat against me. But I couldn’t let that stop me. It hurt like hell and I can still feel the string. But as the bible says to combat heresy, tell the truth. Most people think that lies aren’t a very big sin. Fortunately, that isn’t the truth. God equates lying with murder. The reason being when you lie, you become the servant of the devil. Who is known as the father of all lies. So, a little white lie is a battering ram for the devil. For those who have been called out of this world’s darkness, there is no reason to go back and serve the devil in darkness. For those who don’t know the truth, Jesus, God is calling everyone home. God said if you draw near to Him, He will draw near to you. So, we must make the first step toward God. Then God will swing into action and deliver us from darkness. Lying is serious business. As the bible says, it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Meaning, lying will kill you, both physically and spiritually. All you have to do is turn toward Him and ask.
