Is saying untrue things a sin?

Steven Bobb

Beloved Servant
Jesus said,"Let your yes mean yes, and your no, no"Liars are among the types of people we're told will not be in Heaven."And outside are...and anyone liking and carrying on a lie."Yet in my life,almost everyone I know has made false promises to me.Start with keeping in touch.How many times have I heard, after meeting new people on a trip, they'll gladly keep in touch.They respond the first time or if lucky, 2, then they "fade out."Second,even "friends."{?}I had an out of sight out of mind " friend" who I actually grew up with was friends with for several years, but when I moved away,although swearing high and low he'd keep in touch, he never responded to me, and when I was in the area and visited,he pretty much paid attention to his own things and ignored me.{Then why SAY you want to keep in touch?A lie?}A cousin of mine{who is also self-centered} did the same to me.professes interest to keep in touch, says she'll call back, but either doesn't or calls back a few weeks later, then gives me a ""short time limit" to talk.{After saying she likes keeping in touch.}And then, when it comes to money...there's almost an epidemic of this going around, where someone wants to borrow money{usually a big amount,and on short notice}you have the money set aside for other things,but against your better judgement you give them, but what happens?The promised time of payback comes, and they make excuses, set a new date,more excuses, after a while you see what the deal is.So what's up with all these false statements, that almost everyone I have dealt with has made?My cousin I mentioned even defends it.{"I didn't know keeping my word was so important."}{Compare to Jesus saying,"Let your yes mean yes, and your no, no."{Not ,"change your yes to no at your own feelings, despite your {false} promises."}So is this considered a form of lying, and a sign of the fallen nature?Maybe falls under the statement in the Bible "false to agreements?"P.S. The cousins son does the same thing,said he wanted my email to keep in touch, but never contacted me.

Lying is a sin no matter how it is done.

Lost people lie all the time to their peers and coworkers. Cheat on their work hours and sometimes do not show up for work telling their boss they are sick. Jesus does not like people lying all the time. Stop any lie and blessings upon blessings shall come to you.

A lie is rooted in fear (not to be confuse with reverence). A lie is a sin no matter how we package it. Lies are substandard living. Truth is bold, maybe painful but it is beneficial. The Truth will indeed set you free!

The longer you serve the Lord and love Him with all your heart, mind and soul, all lies will stay away and Jesus will be the center of your life. He will protect you, guide you and He is waiting for you and for me at heavens gates,.
