To lie is not to love, and to love is not to lie. People often say that everyone lies, but it isn’t true. Lying is used as a masquerade to cover up something else, but when we learn to live transparently by the grace and glory of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, lying is a vile practice making us sick through sin’s conviction.
In modern churches, sin is considered a “sin” to talk about, particularly in churches that have strayed from Christ’s teachings and prioritize theatrics and the lust of the eyes and eyes to make a spectacle of the gospel over genuine love and biblical truth.
Despite the widespread acceptance of deceitful behavior, the Bible tells us that sin leads to hell, the same hell we do not hear from pulpits but from the lay Gospel ministers ordained by God, not men. Don’t they know that lying, cheating, and acting deceitfully deceiving, ends in lost souls and leaves a detrimental impact on everyone’s spiritual connection with Jesus Christ?
Proverbs 12:22 tells us, “The Lord detests lying lips,
but he delights in people who are trustworthy.” This verse confirms that God indeed hates liars, tho, He is rich in mercy for those who repent be forgiven and changed.
Check out Peter 3:10-11, which says, “For, Whoever would love life and see good days must keep their tongue from evil and their lips from deceitful speech. They must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it.”
God is not a God who lies, nor should His people. It’s something that is not only thinking about but seeking Christ for change; it takes work, let’s press forward forgetting about yesterday to live the word today, so that society is no longer being deceived.
In love, we speak the truth.
