Sometimes maybe, just maybe, fishermen stretch the truth a bit. But we don’t really consider that lying most of the time. It’s just making a good story out of it, right?
One of the biggest problems with our world today is that it is hard to find the truth any more. When the top leaders of our nation lie with no regret, our country is in deep trouble. When the media can’t report a simple story without making up lies to spin it their way, we are in deep trouble. When…well, you know. The list is endless.
But you want big eternal trouble because of a lie? Try this one:
“If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.”
