The Ninth Commandment:

"20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour." (Exodus 20:16 KJV)

The first recorded lie, from the inventor and spirit of liars:

"3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent [see Do You Want A Servant Or A Serpent?], We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die" (Genesis 3:2-4 KJV)

God's Way is Life and Truth; Satan's way is death and lies:

The Holy Scriptures

"8:43 Why do ye [see Why Did The Lawyers Hate The Messiah?] not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 8:44 Ye are of your father 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. 8:45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not." (John 8:43-45 KJV)

"4:3 But if our gospel [see The Gospel of The Kingdom of God] be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." (2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV)

Always speaking the truth brings freedom, peace of mind and eternal life. The Truth is God's language.

"17:17 Sanctify them [see The Yoke Of Freedom] through thy truth: thy word is truth." (John 17:17 KJV)

"4:22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts [see Lethal Lust]; 4:23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another." (Ephesians 4:22-25 KJV)

"4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's Conscience in the sight of God." (2 Corinthians 4:2 KJV)

"6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God [see Who Has A Spirit Of Confrontation?], that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God" (Ephesians 6:13-17 KJV)

There will be no liars in the Kingdom of God (see When And Where Your Eternal Life Will Begin and What Will Heaven Be Like?):

"6:8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren. 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? [see Moriah: Separating The Wheat From The Chaff] Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." (1 Corinthians 6:8-10 KJV)

"22:12 And, behold, I come quickly [see Could Christ Return Tonight?]; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 22:14 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. 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie." (Revelation 22:12-15 KJV)

There is nothing in this world worth lying about. The old mocking children's rhyme, "Liar, liar, pants on fire" is not entirely inappropriate, considering what is surely coming:

"3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up [see The Lake Of Fire Into An Ocean Of Fire - When?]. 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless." (2 Peter 3:10-14 KJV)
