TRUTH AND LIES

God loves the truth and hates lies. He wants us to seek and find the truth, so that we know it: and he wants us to speak the truth, so that others may also know it.
     "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall
      make you free." (John 8:32 KJV - Jesus speaking)

   "These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye
    every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the
    judgment of truth and peace in your gates: 
   "And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against
    his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these
    are things that I hate, saith the LORD."
                   (Zechariah 8:15-17 KJV) 
The Bible mentions the word "truth " two hundred and twenty-four different times; and none of them justifies falsehood or lies on any occasion. You can read these verses for yourself, by clicking HERE! (See http://biblegateway.com/quicksearch/?quicksearch=truth&qs_version=9)

Are there any situations in which God is pleased when we lie? Very few, if any. The only ones might be when lying is the only way to prevent a very serious evil, such as murder. Lying to save an innocent life might be justified, just as killing in self-defense might be justified, but certainly not encouraged. Almost always, there are better ways than lying to accomplish any good purpose. Search for them.

Blessings to you. May God help us all.
