1. Lying an Abomination to God

 

Leviticus 19:11 Do not steal. “Do not deceive or cheat one another.

 

Proverbs 12:22 The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in those who tell the truth.

 

Proverbs 24:28 Don’t testify against your neighbors without cause; don’t lie about them.

 

2. Punishment Inflicted

 

Psalms 5:6 You will destroy those who tell lies. The Lord detests murderers and deceivers.

 

Proverbs 19:9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and a liar will be destroyed.

 

Acts 5:3-5 Then Peter said, “Ananias, why have you let Satan fill your heart? You lied to the Holy Spirit, and you kept some of the money for yourself. 4 The property was yours to sell or not sell, as you wished. And after selling it, the money was also yours to give away. How could you do a thing like this? You weren’t lying to us but to God!”  5 As soon as Ananias heard these words, he fell to the floor and died. Everyone who heard about it was terrified.

 

 

3. As Regarded by God and Man

 

Psalms 119:63 I am a friend to anyone who fears you—anyone who obeys your commandments.

 

Psalms 120:2 Rescue me, O Lord, from liars and from all deceitful people.

 

Proverbs 13:5 The godly hate lies; the wicked cause shame and disgrace.

 

4. Two Classes Contrasted

 

Proverbs 12:19 Truthful words stand the test of time, but lies are soon exposed.

 

Proverbs 14:5 An honest witness does not lie; a false witness breathes lies.

 

Proverbs 14:25 A truthful witness saves lives, but a false witness is a traitor.

 

5. Characteristic of the Devil

John 8:44 For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.
