A false witness shall not be unpunished,and he that speaketh lies shall not escape. (Proverbs 19:5)
If their one thing that people hate but find it nearly impossible to escape is lying, in this world only a few people are saying the truth when they say their not liers are speaking the truth, because many who say they are not liers are actually saying that we are not liers in “white lies” are not included. Yes I said white lies, many people who believe their not liers only lies if they don’t want to hurt the feelings of the another person or if they want to save their own skin.
Ladies and gentlemen if you don’t speak the truth even when it will hurt someone’s feelings or break a friendship you are not truthful enough and hence a lier. Am not saying that you should not keep secrets but am starting that not all secrets are supposed to be kept by secret. You can’t keep quiet when your friends cheats someone in the name of being a good Friend .
A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow. (Proverbs 25:18)
Being a false witness is more than just lying in the court of law or to your parents or boss in order to save your friend, it also includes telling a person to tell another person that you are not available while you are and also being told to tell someone that the person their looking for is not around, it even includes letting people lie to a person while you know the truth.
Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your “Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.( Matthew 5:36-37 Nkjv)
learn to speak the truth no matter the cost, its better to please God and loose friends. Free yourself from the bondage of lies, because if you lie you will have to keep lying to cover the initial lie. choose to lie a free life which is without the pressure of trying to keep people happy. Know that if people find one that you lie, you will loose more than what you would have initially lost if you would have told the truth.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.( John 8:32)
learn to be honest and truthful at all times for then you shall stand out from your peers and great men shall look for you
