Lying? Seriously we are going to talk about this? Yes!

"Well, as least I can remember to tell the truth and not lie!" I said that and it is true because I do tell the truth all the time.
1. I walk in the way of love by spreading the word of God Online and answering prayer requests on my phone this way giving comfort and peace to others.
2. God may want to change in my life through managing my time and money and helping me not waste either.
3. I will not waste any time or money or resources by looking carefully at what I put my life onto and be more wise and discerning when telling the truth about something.

2 Kings 23:8-23 NIV
[8] Josiah brought all the priests from the towns of Judah and desecrated the high places, from Geba to Beersheba, where the priests had burned incense. He broke down the gateway at the entrance of the Gate of Joshua, the city governor, which was on the left of the city gate. [9] Although the priests of the high places did not serve at the altar of the Lord in Jerusalem, they ate unleavened bread with their fellow priests. [10] He desecrated Topheth, which was in the Valley of Ben Hinnom, so no one could use it to sacrifice their son or daughter in the fire to Molek. [11] He removed from the entrance to the temple of the Lord the horses that the kings of Judah had dedicated to the sun. They were in the court near the room of an official named Nathan-Melek. Josiah then burned the chariots dedicated to the sun. [12] He pulled down the altars the kings of Judah had erected on the roof near the upper room of Ahaz, and the altars Manasseh had built in the two courts of the temple of the Lord. He removed them from there, smashed them to pieces and threw the rubble into the Kidron Valley. [13] The king also desecrated the high places that were east of Jerusalem on the south of the Hill of Corruption---the ones Solomon king of Israel had built for Ashtoreth the vile goddess of the Sidonians, for Chemosh the vile god of Moab, and for Molek the detestable god of the people of Ammon. [14] Josiah smashed the sacred stones and cut down the Asherah poles and covered the sites with human bones. [15] Even the altar at Bethel, the high place made by Jeroboam son of Nebat, who had caused Israel to sin---even that altar and high place he demolished. He burned the high place and ground it to powder, and burned the Asherah pole also. [16] Then Josiah looked around, and when he saw the tombs that were there on the hillside, he had the bones removed from them and burned on the altar to defile it, in accordance with the word of the Lord proclaimed by the man of God who foretold these things. [17] The king asked, “What is that tombstone I see?” The people of the city said, “It marks the tomb of the man of God who came from Judah and pronounced against the altar of Bethel the very things you have done to it.” [18] “Leave it alone,” he said. “Don't let anyone disturb his bones .” So they spared his bones and those of the prophet who had come from Samaria. [19] Just as he had done at Bethel, Josiah removed all the shrines at the high places that the kings of Israel had built in the towns of Samaria and that had aroused the Lord's anger. [20] Josiah slaughtered all the priests of those high places on the altars and burned human bones on them. Then he went back to Jerusalem. [21] The king gave this order to all the people: “Celebrate the Passover to the Lord your God, as it is written in this Book of the Covenant.” [22] Neither in the days of the judges who led Israel nor in the days of the kings of Israel and the kings of Judah had any such Passover been observed. [23] But in the eighteenth year of King Josiah, this Passover was celebrated to the Lord in Jerusalem.
Psalm 26:1-3 NIV
[1] Vindicate me, Lord, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the Lord and have not faltered. [2] Test me, Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind; [3] for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness.
Isaiah 30:19-26 NIV
[19] People of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. [20] Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. [21] Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” [22] Then you will desecrate your idols overlaid with silver and your images covered with gold; you will throw them away like a menstrual cloth and say to them, “Away with you! ” [23] He will also send you rain for the seed you sow in the ground, and the food that comes from the land will be rich and plentiful. In that day your cattle will graze in broad meadows. [24] The oxen and donkeys that work the soil will eat fodder and mash, spread out with fork and shovel. [25] In the day of great slaughter, when the towers fall, streams of water will flow on every high mountain and every lofty hill. [26] The moon will shine like the sun, and the sunlight will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven full days, when the Lord binds up the bruises of his people and heals the wounds he inflicted.
Galatians 5:25 NIV
[25] Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
2 Kings 21:20 NIV
[20] He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, as his father Manasseh had done.

It's true though that most of us lie and this is NOT okay UNDER any circumstances whatsoever!

I encourage you to read the bible DAILY and immerse yourself in the word. If you can't early in the morning, I understand and so does God!

The truth is that lying gets you NOWHERE in life just as sinning doesn't get you anywhere near God!
So my children are we going to tell the truth or ignore the book of truth which is the bible?

Your choice, I can't make you this "Jesus" at all! 
May God bless you always until the day of His Son who is Christ Jesus!
