Some folks in an attempt to defend their lying behavior would restore that that everyone is a liar. This is not true at all. Certainly, I am not a liar and I know so many people who detest lies. As a child of God and a Christian parent, if you want to live a great life, abhor lies in its entirety. The Bible says that the devil is the father of liars. “For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies” John 8: 44. You sure do not want to be known as a child of the devil. So make up your mind to always speak the truth, no matter what. If you have the habit of lying, your children would copy it from you.
It is more honorable to speak the truth than to tell a lie. The Word of God says, “But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ Whatever is more than these is of the evil one” Matthew 5: 37. As you deal with different kind of people, both in your offices and in your neighborhood, you will encounter people of different values from yours. You will meet people who are platonic liars; they do not see anything wrong with telling ‘a little lie’ from time to time. They call it insignificant lies. Interestingly, there is no such thing as insignificant lie. Therefore, these kind of folks cannot be your friends because they will negatively influence you to start lying. “…if sinners try to entice you, do not consent!” Proverbs 1: 10.
Furthermore, all liars will not escape the wrath of God. “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars–their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death” Revelation 21: 8. Did you see that? It says all liars. That means all forms of lies – white lie, insignificant lie, little lie, malicious lie etc. You are a child of God and the fiery lake of burning sulfur is not reserve for you but for the devil and all liars.
