Do You Hate Liars

I think it is safe to say everyone strongly dislikes a liar, but I also think everyone lies. If we hate it so much, why do we do it?

how can you not hate liars? I don't lie. The Bible is easier said than done.I can't forgive, and I doubt some of you can my question is how do you forget about the hate,anger,humiliation,backstabbing and lies? How?
---Mary on 9/2/10

I think we should make a distinction between being a "liar" and being "misquided".

Some people do not know the truth and spread lies they heard from others. Others don't know the truth, thus they promote misquided and faulty information.

Liars, on the other hand, know the truth but withhold the truth in favor of distorting the truth, thus promoting DELIBERATE FALSEHOODS.
---Higgins on 7/2/10

I don't just dislike liars I hate them. Why use fancy words. DISLIKE. I HATE. Whatever God hates, yes, I do. Tell me there is no God, I'll have to call you a liar. Maybe the world don't need God, but I do. And from what I'm hearing this world needs Him. You won't know that you need Him until after He saves you. Listen, I have seen my Savior with the necked eye, twice. I KNOW MY GOD LIVES AND HE IS MORE ALIVE THAN YOU OR I. God loves to choose those people who He knows needs Him and will depend on Him. Do you all know how much trouble you would save the government, if you looked to God for what you need instead of the government. Aren't you patriot? I believe the government is over-whelmed, well, God isn't. Ahh, Jesus!

Some people lie just to get what they want ..they are selfish..anyway u can quote everything the bible says but also the Bible says that God does not ive to any man any temptation that he cannot handle..

The guy I like lied to me about liking me, saying "I like you" and "I want you" then got suprised when I got upset he asked out my friend
---Heather on 4/30/10

GOD HATES LIARS! It is no fun being around someone who does NOT tell the truth. You cannot trust liars. Ofcourse, some have a real problem in this. Others a moderate problem in this. God's people must not lie. This is why we pray, "Father, please forgive me for all of my sins, and those I know nothing about". "In Jesus name Amen".
---catherine on 1/6/10

Rhonda - Very good, can only agree with you on what you stated-

"sadly many christians are SOLD on idea once Christ falls from their lips they are instantaneously changed to PERFECT which directly contradicts Holy Scripture which describes a life-long process of overcoming"

I rather doubt our friend Eloy will last too long at either your table or mine as clearly we all have come up short and have our sin.

1Jo 1:8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

And even if we cleave to our sin, He will attempt to take it away from us as -

1Jo 3:5 You know that he appeared to take away sins, and in him there is no sin.
---Lee1538 on 1/5/10

Rhonda, first, happy new year, Second, those were very good points you posted. They are very helpful.
---MarkV. on 1/5/10

lying is of the flesh ...all sin is of the flesh

no sin is greater than another

Paul's writing describe his struggle with sin ...knowing it is there and learning to overcome

ALL struggle with varying degree's of sin ...some struggle with lying ...others with lust, envy, worship of idols, and anger which can turn violent

sadly many christians are SOLD on idea once Christ falls from their lips they are instantaneously changed to PERFECT which directly contradicts Holy Scripture which describes a life-long process of overcoming

if you struggle with lying LEARN to overcome ..acknowledge and ask God for strength to be truthful

it is THROUGH Gods Holy Spirit dwelling within that one learns to overcome
---Rhonda on 1/4/10

Romans 7:16-If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.

17-Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

18-For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me, but how to perform that which is good I find not.

19-For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

20Now if I do that I would not, it is no mor-e I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
---mima on 1/4/10

No. Lying, like any other sin, is the thing to be hated - not the liar.

Michael: Lying is a form of disrespect. Is there a reason why your wife and mother don't respect you?
---jerry6593 on 1/4/10

I dont hate liars as everyone on earth is one - myself included.

I think we lie because we are embarrassed of our sin and want to hide it from other men. I believe its just that simple.
---JackB on 1/3/10

Micheal, you have to understand that all of us fail. Every single person fails many times. It only shows that we cannot be depended upon to be perfect. Only God never fails.
When my wife left, she fail me. But she had reasons for what she did. She saw my failures, that I didn't see. When she made the decision to leave it must have been the best thing she thought of at the time. Even if it wasn't. But it actually was a good thing. Because through her leaving, Christ came into our lives, not only to both of us but to most of my family. Through our failures God brings great things for us. He turns what is bad to good. And what He turns for good, it is always perfect.
---MarkV. on 1/2/10

Is it ok to lie about something when that person is not entitled to the truth?

We note that even the Lord approved of a lying spirit to get old Ahad to go up against Ramothgilead and do himself in. 2 Kings 22:20f.
---Lee1538 on 1/2/10

Liars lie to cover up the truth which may be painful for them to face. Or to cover something up they don't want to discuss or admit to. Liars do it so long and they begin to believe their lies. It is a moral defect in one's character. We all lie at some point in our lives but it is wrong to do so.
---robyn on 1/1/10

I am so upset.
Even though I was raised by my parents.
I do not follow my mother's habit of lying
on occasion. It breaks my heart when my
mother lies to me. And she is not good at it.
Now on rare occasion I find my wife has
decieved me on minor subjects. But if she can
on minor subjects...what about major subjects?
I want to trust people....but I cannot if they
lie even once. Maybe I deserve to be lied to?

Kella8334 --
Good point. I don't know of anyone who hasn't lied for this purpose at some time....probably even the Christians who "hate" liars.
---Donna66 on 2/4/09

I do not make a habit of lying. One reason I may lie is when asked a personal question.
---Kella8334 on 2/4/09

I don't mind liars as much as deceivers. The government says there is deflation. So why are people losing their homes if the homes are getting cheaper? We don't have price rises in Japan but all the food we buy is shrinking. The packaging is the same size but inside is 50 per cent more air than there was before. So we have hidden inflation in Japan of 200 per cent. We know it subliminally, but we don't talk much about it. It just feels that we have to shop daily instead of every other or third day, or once a week as years ago. Luxuries like biscuits - they are so tiny, it is hardly worth buying them.

Some people have been through so much in fleeing from their homelands, from torture etc, that they trust nobody,and only tell lies about their personal information. Other people lie to try and make you believe in a philosophy that is not true. Other people lie because they believe what they say is the truth but it is only what they believe is the truth. So we have a lot of subsets in the group 'liars'. God probably judges on the circumstances.
---frances008 on 2/3/09

I don't hate liars...but if they make a habit of lying, I steer clear of them. They cause trouble wherever they go. Liars often cause themselves so many problems, that I almost pity them.
Only if the Lord urges me to talk to them His ability to change them, do I willingly spend any time with them.
---Donna66 on 2/2/09

Well, I don't. I was never much of a liar when I was lost. I am not a liar now. God will be my judge on this. And I thank you!
---catherine on 2/2/09

I have a friend named Grace Conley. She is a compulsive liar and even though i like her as a friend, lieing to me is one of the worst qualities someone can have. I don't know if i will have a future of friendship with her because i get so angry at her constant lieing and i have trust issues with her. Should i continue to be her friend or should we take separate paths? Please help my serious problem.

Donna, my wife is a very intelligent and mature woman and we always joke and tease each other which makes life much more fun.

I would never offend her but jokingly, we'll say anything to each other.

I strongly dislike liars. I very rarely lie. Usually white lies (like when they do look fat --but you tell them--no you look fine!) is a lie that saves anothers feelings. So--not everybody lies. A majority does--but not all.
---cindy on 1/7/09

To---Nana, as regards my being a liar let me ask this, how many men do you have to kill to be guilty of murder? So likewise how many lies do you have to tell to be a liar?
Better to acknowledge our guilt of all sin than be self-righteous in our own eyes!!!

---Jillian_Scheduin on 1/6/09

we should not hate the liars, but the lie..if anyone does wrong, it is the wrong they did that we hate or dislike..not the person..we are to forgive..yes forgive no matter what..if we dont forgive, God also wont forgive you..

Psalm 116, David was saying that because he was grieved
he spoke in "haste". Basically that he was out of line in saying
what he said.
What was Paul saying? He was saying that a man who
"slanderously" undermines the reputation of a man who is
abiding by the full counsel of the word of God is a liar. Not
that all men are liars. Paul considered himself a sinner but
never a liar. How could he otherwise claim slander?
---Nana on 3/29/08

Romans 9:1: "I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience
also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost," I Timothy 2:7:
"Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle,

Gentiles in faith and verity."
---Nana on 3/29/08

Mima, what kind of a liar of a soulwinner are you... You are
lacking something or other in your coconut. That claim that
Jesus, "paid for all lies(sins) accept Jesus and be forgiven of
all lies (sins)" is unscriptural. Of Paul who, I Timothy 1:13:
"Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and
injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in
unbelief." , do you believe he was a liar thereafter in the
Gospel he preached?
---Nana on 3/29/08

Ephesians 5:8: "For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are
ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9: (For the fruit of
the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth,)
10: Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11: And have no
fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather
reprove them. 12: For it is a shame even to speak of those things
which are done of them in secret."
Turn your light on Mima!

It is recorded in the Ten Commandment. Bareing false witness is lieing and more. Speaking falsely in any matter, lying, and in any way of devising and designing to deceive our neighbor. Slandering. I mean, God covers all of it. Bring back the Ten Commandments. Government officials can just stop breaking God's laws and stop making up their own. Tale-bearing, aggravating what is done amiss and making it worse than it is. Lets protect my reputation, at the expense of your reputation. GOD HATES.

We should hate no one.Liars are people with character defects as we all have. Pray for them and let God do the judging.Help them as much as we can but never hate. Even if we hate lying in others we still commit the sin anyway. This is why we should not hate anyone. Because we are guilty, or could be guilty of the same sin, at any time.We should always show mercy.
---Robyn on 3/26/08

I am not sure that everyone hates it. Some lies out of habit, never told the truth in their life. Some out of fear. Some has been taught to lie.

Some people go through periods of life (crises) when they are unable to speak at all. I expect those people find it easy to refrain from lying. As for the rest of the time, or other people, we do not know when we are lying because of all the disinformation that bombards us from the outside world.

I HATE liars. I hate them with a passion and i don't mean most people who lie sometimes to make someone feel better or to fix up a problem, no, I mean those ones that whatever comes out of there mouth is a lie.

It's all because of ONE big liar. lying her way to get people to turn on other people and when they get in trouble for it? They lie again!
---Sabrina on 3/19/08

It is not true that everyone lies. There are still people out there that believe in integrity and honor. I happen to be one of those people. Unfortunately, I've been walked all over by liars. What's really sad is when people that claim to be Christian tell lies that result in doing much harm to others. Just recently I've had some dealings with this kind of people, and I've been taken for a lot!

I really hate lies. I was brought up that "white lies" are ok, which is a lie because a lie is a lie. I would much rather be told the truth or be told nothing than to be told a lie. Lies do heaps of harm to others - they hurt people. The Book of Revelation says that all liars will be thrown into the Lake of Fire.

---tom2 on 8/5/06

I don't like lying. But the truth isn't always of utmost importance. What I mean is, my opinion isn't so special that it must be offered in full. I do not need to reveal whatever I know. It's not essential to point out every thing that may be wrong.

All of these things may be useful in some circumstances. But if they accomplish nothing good, there is always the choice to be quiet.

The liar is a follower of Satan, the father of lies. I do not believe that a single person is not a liar to a degree. (Excepting only the Lord Jesus Christ.)

The Word, at its autograph is true, beyond that there are some errors and some lies.

However, the Word is sufficient to prove everything essential for salvation.
---Robert on 7/18/06

The reason why we lie is because our old nature is at war with the Spirit. The Spirit wages war with the flesh and we can either yield to the flesh or to the Spirit.

Jack, can you even "see" your own sins? When you roam around this board and try to steal the truth, the word, by twisting it's meaning, isn't that what satan does?

Point for meditation in the prayer closet:

I think a person who never lies is a rare being. I have NEVER told my children the lies about the existence of Santa, the Easter bunny or the tooth fairy but the majority of Christians actually do lie about these. On the other hand I sometimes tell a caller on the telephone that someone is not available when I know they are home but do not wish to speak to the caller. THAT IS A LIE and I do it. I do believe that lieing is wrong, I believe virtually all Christians do it and it's called sin.
---M.P. on 7/13/06

Chad--I agree (tho I wish I didn't have to) that everyone lies at times. The worst lies may be the lies we tell ourselves. Many people don't intentionally lie...but might exaggerate, or try to appear to others as something they are not. How often we may try to appear as we'd LIKE to be... more intelligent, better informed, more forgiving, wealthier, and, a BIGGY for Christians...more SPIRITUAL than we really are. I would say we ALL have done this, but if I do, some will undoubtedly DENY IT.
---Donna2277 on 7/12/06

I dislike being lied to, it ruins the trust I may have in another person. But, it's the lie that hurts me, I do not hate the liar. Depending on the relationship I have with that person, and what I feel is best, I may seperate myself from them.
