For the summer of 2014 at Dakota we are studying the Ten Commandments, especially in light of the New Covenant.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour. Exodus 20:16
Has anyone else taken note; as we work our way through the Ten Commandments, that God seems to take sin much more seriously as a problem than we do?
In all my research for this message I could find no biblical reference for pretty little liars, for fibbing, or for little white lies! Just the one horrible offence; punishable by “the lake that burns with fire and sulfur…” (Revelation 21:8)
Is it ever the right thing to do to tell a lie? What is the reason we are prone to lie (the root problem) and what do we typically hope to gain when we deceive? I hope you will all join me this Sunday morning as we expose the liar and look to the Truth for healing.
