“Do not lie to each other. You have left your old sinful life and the things you did before.” Colossians 3:9
Biblical meaning of a lie: To practice deceit, falsehood, and treachery either by word or action. It is the exact opposite of the truth.
The sanctity of truth is fundamental in biblical teaching since it is based on the nature and character of God. Therefore, to despise truth is to despise God, and the Scriptures treat this topic with profound seriousness.
“A LIE BELIEVED AS TRUTH WILL AFFECT YOUR LIFE AS TRUTH EVEN THOUGH IT IS A LIE.”
Some in Secular Society will give you a half-truth – misguided facts – still a lie
Some in relationships will color the “facts” so as not to anger or offend – still lies
Some will pass on “information” that is not checked out and pass it on as truth – still a lie
Some cannot stand the light of Truth – so will speak from a heart of darkness – filled with lies.
The Bible says Satan is the Father of Lies. There are many avenues where a person can tell “lies” and believe no harm will happen. Look deep into your heart today as we discuss the “lies of the world” that are not limited to those outside of Christianity but find our old sinful lifestyle still “living a lie.”
