Specific Kinds of Lies and Deceit
A. Outright Falsehoods
These are “bold-faced lies” – the one who tells them is well aware that he has told an outright falsehood. He may consider it a “big black lie” (one with serious consequences) or a “little white lie” (one he thinks will not have serious consequences), but he knows it he has told a lie.
Many passages rebuke the general concept of lying.
Proverbs 6:16-19 – God hates a lying tongue and a false witness who speaks lies.
Exodus 20:16 – You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
Ephesians 4:25 – Putting away lying, let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor.
1 Timothy 1:10 – Liars are listed among other sins that are contrary to sound doctrine.
These are direct prohibitions against lying. Most people know that lying is morally wrong. Interestingly, people who often tell lies to others (like politicians) will often become very upset when other people lie to them and are often the quickest to accuse others of lying!
Other kinds of lies and deceit may be less obvious: people may not consider these acts to be lies or deceptions when they do it. Yet they often recognize such acts to be lying when other people do it to them!
[Other verses note especially Matthew 15:19; Leviticus 19:11,12; Colossians 3:9; see also Psalms 7:14; 32:2; 58:3; 59:12; Proverbs 4:24; 24:28; Isaiah 59:3,13; Hosea 4:2; Micah
6:12; Nahum 3:1; Romans 13:9; 1 Peter 2:1; 3:10; John 1:47]
Those who are participating in this for gain are going to HELL.
