Noooooo it’s a lie, there is no such thing as a little fib, or porky pie, or white lie, they are all untruths and lies and therefore, sin.
How many times have you heard, oh its not a lie its just a little fib, God won’t mind a little fib if its not hurting anyone. WRONG!! No matter what version you want to tell it, a lie is a lie and a sin is a sin. Proverbs 12:22 says – The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy. It doesn’t matter what situation you get yourself into it is always better to tell the truth, praying always that the Lord will deliver you from whatever it is that you are wanting to lie about.
I knew a Christian person who used to be a compulsive liar and the worst thing was they always had a justification as to why they told so many lies. Well its my right, I am revered in Heaven, God knows my heart, my good works will see me through, NO, they won’t! God is no respecter of persons, if you should steal a pencil or murder someone it is all sin, and God only sees the sin not the size of it! Proverbs 14:5 says “An honest witness does not deceive, but a false witness pours out lies”. Eek you do not want to be in the same category as a false witness so be honest in all your ways, no matter how hard things seem to be. To honor God with a truthful mouth and honest heart will see a far greater reward than if you don’t.
