"Thou Shall Not Lie!!!!!!!!"
Telling lies can become addictive! First the person telling the lie thinks there is no harm in telling it; as long as the purpose is for the fact of sparing someones feelings or keeping themselves or someone out of trouble - therefore not trusting in The Almighty God. ( this is the beginning of practicing - the telling of lies.)

But before one may realize it, he/she becomes comfortable with telling lies. Making their minds up to tell lies only for good & kind reasons. And before he/she realizes it, they have formed a bad habit. A habit that later also turns into selfish reasons & what ever the reason may be, he/she is still putting Satan's laws into practice.

Then he/she starts using the the excuse "I was to week to control myself."
If we except what The Almighty God said "Thou shall not lie" (Exodus 20:16). And we should respect that law no-matter what. So that if we do fail, let it be because - we were week - with out the practicing of telling lies - but - by pure accidental of mind. The more we stay away from sin; the more we stay away from practicing Satan's laws & from falling into his traps & the closer we get to The Almighty God.

For serving our Almighty God means to love HIM with all our heat, soul & mind & with ALL OUR MIGHT! We do have the power to say NO to telling lies & any other temptations - if we use the power of our might.
*The question is: 'Do you really want to serve The Almighty God!'
And if one of us, do have, the bad habit of telling lies but wants to change, then let it be with the goodness of their hearts & prayer to The Almighty God through Jesus Christ; asking HIM to pour out HIS Holy Spirit & to forgive them & to give them courage & the strength that they need to stop this bad habit that they have.

For The Almighty God has given us the power of choice. We can say yes or no to almost anything we want to. But saying no to sin is or can be as easy as saying yes or no to almost anything. It all depends on were your heart (soul & mind) is.

He is the father of all lies

Thank you, the devil just need a person to tell a socalled little lie then he has them where he wants them. A liar has no part of the Living God- he hates it, amen. John 8:44 Jesus tells us about that liar "Ye are of your father the devil and the lusts of your father ye will do, He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a LIE, he speaketh of his own: for his is a LIAR, and the father of it. "

Got another one for this list -
11 " 'Do not steal.
" 'Do not lie.
" 'Do not deceive one another.

12 " 'Do not swear falsely by my name and so profane the name of your God. I am the LORD.

Leviticus 19:11-12

How about this one,
Luke 6:46
“So why do you call me ‘Lord,’ when you won’t obey me?

or this one,
"Christians don't tell lies, they go to church on Sunday and sing them." A.W.Tozer

ooh ooh I got one how about when someone comes up to you and asks how you are doing and you say .... "great" and you (more times than not ) are having a really hard time.. so that right there is a lie. Also the person who asked the question a good bit of the time does not really want to know it's politeness!

there is one lady at my church will probably never ask me how I am again lol... she asked me one day how I was... I shocked her and told the thruth.

ok ok I am getting ahead of myself ... something I am working on to write and I will fully post it sometime

We all do stumble sometimes, and when we make mistakes such as that, then I think it to bewise to correct that lie, by tell truth as soon as possible, followed with an appology. Then go somewhere & pray, repenting & asking GOD to for give. Above all, I know that GOD will understand, for HE knows our hearts & how we feel when we do stumble & thus; HE is ready to forgive us. :love:

Very nice thread. Keep it up!
I rate LIE as one of the biggest sins/evils. It invites/promotes other sins.
