Lying has become commonplace in today’s society. How did the practice get started? What was the worst lie ever told? How can we protect ourselves from being deceived, and how can we show that we speak the truth with one another? You can try and answer those questions, let me point out some short answers.
Satan was the first liar. Also that he was malicious in that he knew the result that would follow if Eve was deceived into listening to him.
Def Of a lie. “The lie! That is, saying something that one knows is not true in order to deceive someone else.” John 8:44 speaking about Satan, reminds us in part that “he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition”.
We know that the whole world—including religions that teach falsehoods, corrupt politics, and greedy commercialism—you could say is under the Devil’s control. (1 John 5:19)
Also that “We are not surprised, then, that Satan and his demons would influence men in powerful positions to “speak lies”. Today, People often resort to lying either to protect themselves or to promote themselves. They lie to cover up their mistakes and misdeeds or to gain economic and personal advantages.
Bottom line guys is this; whatever others do, let us “Speak the truth with one another.” At all times. (Zechariah 8:16)
