Father of Lies

Re:Verse passage – Exodus 20:16 (day seven)

“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”

You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44)

False testimony, twisted words, gossip, slander, exaggerations, misquotes, deceitfulness, propaganda, spin, empty words – This is a short list of ways that we lie.  There are plenty more too.  When we veer off and walk with the devil there is no telling what will come out of our mouths, but whatever it is, it will be a lie.

  1. I hope this article explains why people lie. Phuong Callaway’s insight: The great power of relationships is when you can tell the truth to one another, and trust each other, and be authentic – and with pathological liars you can’t trust them,” Orloff said. “You can’t base your life around them. It’s like a moral deficit, and there’s no accountability. Someone who is a pathological liar will not say I’m sorry for doing it. They’ll say it’s your fault.”


    It is just morally and ethically a wrong thing to lie! It is a dangerous path for everyone!
