It’s always better to just tell the truth. It is easier to remember, and you will feel better and sleep better at night. Jesus never told a lie. One lie leads to another. It has been said “one lie can never stand alone.” 0′ what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. It is not convicting on your conscience when we just simply tell the truth, and do the right thing. In a court of law they throw out a persons whole testimony if they are caught in a lie, because they can’t believe a thing they say if they will tell just one lie, even if 99 percent of what they said is the truth. All their testimony is disregarded and they are fined , and or jailed for perjury.The Bible says in the 10 commandments. “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy brother.” (Exodus 20:16). It is the same in witnessing for Jesus. How can anybody believe a thing you say about Jesus or the Bible if they know that you don’t always tell the truth? About the only time I think it would be ok in Gods eyes to lie is if you are in a place where preaching the Gospel is illegal and some police man knocks on your door looking for some brother or sister, and you tell him that they don’t live there anymore to save them from being arrested, and possibly tortured and killed, but if you self rightously told on them, then that would be a terrible thing to do. Actually they wouldn’t be living there anymore as soon asthey found out what happened so you wouldn’t be lying. “Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.” (Romans 12:17). Beloved its much better and easier on us and our conscience to just do the right thing and tell the truth Amen?
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
