Lying is one of the six mentioned sins that God detests.
No one likes a liar. People who have the tendency to lie a lot often find themselves in difficult situations. There are tons of scriptures about Liars and the art of lying.
Proverbs 6:16-19 Six things are hated by the Lord; seven things are disgusting to him: (17) Eyes of pride, a false tongue, hands which take life without cause; (18) A heart full of evil designs, feet which are quick in running after sin; (19) A false witness, breathing out untrue words, and one who lets loose violent acts among brothers.
Proverbs 26:28 A false tongue has hate for those who have clean hearts, and a smooth mouth is a cause of falling.
Where does the fuel for lying come from within a person? Why are people compelled to lie? In this
world, people lie for a number of reasons. However, do they even know why? Satan is said to be the father of lies. He deceives people daily in believing distorted truths in order to entrapped their souls from the heart beat of God.
John 8:43-45 Why do you not know My speech? Because you cannot hear My Word. (44) You are of the Devil as father, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and did not abide in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it. (45) And because I tell you the truth, you do not believe Me.
Lies that the Devil tells.....
1. You are not good enough.
2. You will never amount to anything.
3. Everything is your fault.
4. It is ok to sin.
5. God is not real.
6. Your smarter than you know.
7. You have your own power.
8. You need people or relationships.
9. You can do whatever you want; it only affects you.
10. God really didn't say that.
Satan's number one task is to destroy the people on this planet in spite of God. His hate and despising of the living God does back before the time of man. How can we get this truth to the world? The enemy is doing everything he can to deceive our children, our friends, our relatives, and everybody on the face of planet earth!
One thing is certain. The only way to conquer a lie is to declare the truth. Many have tried to down play God's word. His word is the truth which drowns out the lies. Satan is a dirty, filthy, liar. The father of all lies. We have the truth to spear shot the devil right between the eyes. Don't let the truth in you be over taken by the lies of this world. Let it shine and lets put a stop to the liar, liar, pants on fire for good.
