1. Just because you heard it first, doesn't mean it's the Truthful Version.
We tend to defend our understanding of things. Being corrected isn't high on the
list of what we humans enjoy.
2. Fifty Million people can believe a lie, and it's Still a Lie.
There is no safety in going with the "flow". Agreement isn't Validation.
3. All LIES originate in the Heart.
Our brains construct the "lie" at our Heart's Request.
4. The....... KIND LIE.
We have ALL used this one. Roughly, it is a lie for the"benefit" of the person it is
told to. Sparing a loved one, the Details concerning the death of their loved one,
would be an example of this type of "lie". This isn't the type of lie that would go
against us. Remember, all lies have their origin in the Heart.
Here's another type of lie we ALL do. Whether it is an "up or down" Slant on what
ever it is we are presenting, it's Still Lying. This is why "eye witnesses" are so
unreliable in their testimony.
Basically it is Lying to Yourself. This is where PRIDE plays such a Big Role in our
lives. We ALL think we are Better than we really are, and as a result we ALL like
to Toot our own horns.
7. The LIE to DEFEND
This lie is the immediate response to accusation. None of us want to be "Guilty".
It starts with Parental interaction. The child is confronted and looks for an escape
from a situation that has consequences for them. The "lie" is the first option. It
is usually in the form of a "denial". And of course satan is there to see that the
"Seed" continues to grow and he stays there until the Holy Spirit renders his
efforts pointless as JESUS has forgiven us of ALL of our sins.
And that includes our lies, ALL of them.
So, there are people out there who will say "so we can lie and it's ok?" These
people who ask such a stupid question don't have the Blessing of the In-Dwelt
HOLY SPIRIT and we should Pray for them (as hard as it is sometimes) as we ask
the LORD to continue to Bless us as we confess our sins daily and Thank HIM for
ALL that HE has done for us, with JESUS at the top of the list.
SEEK HIS VOICE..........HE, doesn't lie.
