To lie is to intentionally deceive: A lesson in morality - something which our nation as a whole has abandoned - This is for morally upright persons
to know and to understand - all others are incapable of knowing the value of truth and therefore of truthfulness. For example, would you lie to, or in
the face of your own children? If so then you're no better than the president and those who follow him this way - totally and completely without moral
standing. They will eventually disrespect you for deceiving them!!!
Lying is intrinsically evil. Every intrinsically evil act is always immoral because the act is, by its very nature, contrary to the moral law.
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
and hands that shed innocent
blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies,
and one who sows discord
among brothers. Proverbs 6:16-19
God is truth. He abhors lying. The devil is the father of lies.
The truthful lip shall be established forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment. (Proverbs 12:19)
Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. (Matthew 5:11)
Therefore, putting away lying, "Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor." for we are members of one another. (Ephesians 4:25)
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 21:8)
