When I found out someone lied to me to get what the person wanted regarding a business transaction, I was caught totally off guard. The person had seemed so nice. So kind. So honest. But the person wasn’t honest. And when I spoke to the person after the discovery, the person essentially turned everything around and blamed me. Then said something else that turned out to probably not be true.
Lying isn’t very nice, and it isn’t very kind, and it hurts people, sometimes terribly. But most of all, lying is sin against God almighty. And those who chronically lie without repenting and turning their hearts and lives over to the Lord Jesus Christ and living for the Lord according to the Lord’s ways as He teaches us in the Bible face an unfathomably awful end. Hell and the lake of fire forever apart from God.
Maybe you’re mad at me for telling you this. Maybe you even hate me. You might reject me. You might bad mouth me. You might never want to read another word I write. But please understand I am not writing this truth about lying to judge anyone. Not to condemn anyone. Not to look down on anyone. Not to harm anyone. But to tell you the truth so that you know. ALL dishonesty, ALL lies, ALL lying, ALL sin, it ALL needs to be purged from our lives. And liars, according to the Bible which is God’s truth, who do not repent and turn to God and His ways, will not spend forever in heaven with God.
Please, with all my heart I beg you, if you are a liar, if you are telling lies, if you have told lies, whether seemingly big or seemingly tiny, and have not turned from your sin and turned to Jesus Christ as Lord, please read and heed this.
Believe Jesus Christ is Lord, believe He died on the cross to pay our sin penalty and was raised from the dead, turn from your sins, turn from any and all lying and any other sin, turn to God and His ways, go forth living for God according to His ways and no longer for self according to the world’s ways. Leave lying behind. It’s not worth going to hell for. Live the right way. Live God’s way. Be honest. Put your trust in the Lord. Follow Him faithfully. Humbly, lovingly, blessedly, forever and ever, AMEN!
There is only one right way to live. To live for God – forevermore, AMEN!
“Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal truthfully are His delight.” Proverbs 12:22 NKJV
“And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”” Revelation 21:6-8 NKJV
