You’re a liar…

Well maybe you’re not, but how many times do you notice when others do it? Chances are you have lied in the past or are now are participating in the world-wide epidemic that is sweeping our culture. It seems like everyone is lying about something, it could be big or they could be confusing themselves by telling themselves that it’s “nothing big and won’t hurt anyone”, everywhere you look people are not truth tellers.

And honestly it doesn’t shock me. Lying is good for covering up all kinds of things. Right? Things you wish you were better at, things that you don’t want to be found out and we could go on and on. The problem is, while it seems good and easy enough to do in the moment, it is what lying is creating in our hearts that is the major problem.

I think that in every lie we tell, humans actually believe a part of it. In some facet when we don’t tell the truth to others we buy into the lie that we let come out of our mouth. And what comes out of your mouth comes from your heart right? I think you can see where this is going right? If what is coming out of our mouths is actually coming out of our hearts, what is in our hearts? THIS QUESTION MUST BE ANSWERED.

My thought is this on lying. When you lie, the truth of God is not in you and only proves 1 of 2 things.

  1. You aren’t saved. Consistent lying only proves this point.
  2. You haven’t completely begun to understand what being a Christian means.

As Christians we don’t lie not because it is the moral thing to do, but we don’t lie because we understand that God is the ultimate truth in this world. When a person makes a lifestyle (and you might be closer to this than you think) it distorts  what our heart knows as truth. Which makes it all the harder for your mind to understand God’s plan for this whole world!

Luckily (or the way God planned it, wink wink) there is a God who saves, and in spite of our sinning and lying he still draws and brings us to His salvation.
