Scripture on Lying

*Revelation 21:8- But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.

*Proverbs 14:5- A faithful witness does not lie, But a false witness will utter lies.

*Proverbs 14:25- A true witness delivers souls, But a deceitful witness delivers lies.

*Proverbs 19:5- A false witness shall not go unpunished, And he who speaks lies will not escape.

*Proverbs 19:9- A false witness will not go unpunished, And he who speaks lies will perish.

*Romans 3:4- Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written:
“That you may be justified in Your words, And may overcome when You are judged.” 

*John 8:44- You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

*Exodus 20:16- You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”

*Proverbs 6:16-20- There are six things the Lord hates, Yes seven are an abomination to Him;  A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart the devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren. My son, keep your father’s command, and do not forsake the law of your mother.

*Note: Pride is at the root of lying. As most will lie to be perceived in a better light by whomever they are speaking. In fact, Pride could be considered the root of all sin. Wanting to rely on our own mindset and understanding doing what we “feel” is right, instead of what God has shown us and instructed us to do.
