“Don’t lie for the other guy”. So said the commercial that was on TV the other day. I remember the time when I sold a car to a man. This guy wanted me to lie on the transfer of title by saying I was giving the car to him as a gift; that way he wouldn’t have to pay the state tax. I told him no way!
Too many people are lying today. The word of the Lord teaches not to lie at all, yet folks pay no attention and go about their dishonest ways (Ephesians 4:25; Colossians 3:9; Proverbs 6:17; Acts 5:1-4).
Lying uptown, lying downtown, and lying all the way around. Lying for their boss, lying for their spouse, lying for their friends, etc.
On Judgement Day many will be sent to Hell because of their lying. (Revelation 21:8). Yes, spending eternity in Hell because of lying for a buddy. Bad deal, don’t allow it. Let your so-called friend tell his own lie, don’t do it for him. (1 Timothy 5:22; Proverbs 1:10; Judges 6:31).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
