“Liar Liar Pants on Fire”

The Bible says God commands us not to bear false witness in Exodus 20:16.

But how many people take Him at His word and obey him? Apparently, not too many.

Some say there are big lies, small lies, and, oh yes, the white lies. Some say it is ok to lie about your age. But God says a lie is a lie, period, no subcategories.

Can you spot a liar? It should be easy because they are all around us.

A recent survey indicates that an average person tells four lies daily, which works out to 28 a week, 120 a month, or 1440 a year.

Now that’s a lot of lying going on.

So how about Christians? I wonder if they lie more or less than the average person.

I hope their lying numbers are much lower, but one thing is for sure: Christians clearly understand that only one person was sinless about lying. Jesus Christ.

Now go and sin no more!
