THE CURSE OF LITTLE WHITE LIES

It was just another day, it has been just another lie, and another explanation fabricating certain words into sentences. When a lie is spoken with little to no compunction, lies abound and the human condition experiences much corruption. Are we doomed to not be right, in the growing tolerance of deceits and their blurring of the line between truth and lie; is there something wrong with society? If there is nothing left of truth, we then rest in a bed of sin and we had better examine our heads, this is the part of us that fears. The pondering of truths twisted and meant to mislead, various validations are offered for the little white lies being told.
Perhaps the root cause for lies being spoken, is one’s inability to face the consequences for speaking the truth and some penalties are intended to shut down those speaking truth. In fact, speaking lies is now commonplace and the increasing absence of the truth, has sped up the deterioration of a once virtuous culture. The truth has been categorized as offensive, especially to those living in the fantasy land paradigm and this kind of attitude, is not from being uneducated, rather, the problem persists, in the fact that many are just educated enough to accept what is being taught as the truth. The mentally enslaved are marginalized and the absence of critical thinking skills that positions them in a place of ignorance. Of course, ignorance is without question the single greatest tool of oppression and a life lived in the barren wasteland of perpetual motion, has no time for the truth.
There is a misconception that people value honesty, this is often mistaken, as most people are deficient of the truth and are apprehensive to speak unmitigated truths. Not only do people fear the opinions of others, we also lie to ourselves, designed for the purpose of suppressing truths that would never surface. Therefore, when the truth becomes elusive, then the truth becomes obsolete and so, man succumb to the acquisition of “little white lies”. This disease has infected far too many, who have forgotten or overlook “that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?”? (1 Corinthians 6:9-11) and the serpent, who continues to slither about, incorporates the tactic of the “little white lie” of doubt. His deception, ever dripping from his lips, injecting doubt, by asking, “yea, hath God said?” as-well-as “ye shall not surely die” (Genesis 3:1;4) and the planting of demon seeds, corrupt the mind. The mind is then compromised, which creates fabrications that are then regurgitated from the wicked tongues of Jezebel and still the truth remains that “Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight” (Proverbs 12.22).
There must be an appropriate level of latitude, to the standard of obedience and the strictness, which the Lord demands. If God says what he means and means what he says; how then does God reckon “little white lies” and “little white lies” that contain a minuscule amount of truths. The Lord, our “God is not a man, that he should lie” (Numbers 23.19), in fact, it is “impossible for God to lie” (Hebrews 6.18). Separating clear deceits from the “little white lie” is of no consequence to God, as he hates and abhors lying, period (see: Psalm 119.163). While man seeks justification for his lies and his justification is in opposition to the commands of the Lord, he said, “neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another” (Leviticus 19.11) and “a righteous man hateth lying” (Proverbs 13.5).
The Lord does not want man to add to his word and what if, words were to be added to Proverbs, chapter 14 and verse 5: “A faithful witness will not lie [except to spare someone’s feelings]: but a false witness will utter lies”. Nevertheless, a spoken lie on any level, equates to submission to Satan, you know, “the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44).
Christians are not to lie one to another, in fact, we are not to allow “corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers” (Ephesians 4.29).
The Lord God Almighty, is incapable of fabrications and his words must stand in the forefront of our lives. He said, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star” (Revelation 22:13-16).

Seeking the only truth that matters, so I pray to the Lord Jesus the Christ, “Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day” (Psalms 25.5).
