The Bible has nothing to say about a “White Lie”. A lie is a lie. All lies are sin in the eyes of God.
People want to water down sin and it’s consequences. People want to excuse sin and not take things seriously. In light of Christ you just can not do that. The traditional “white lie” was considered to be a little lie and not as bad as a big lie. Deception!
Compare this little thought to the Original Sin. God told Adam and Eve don’t eat from the tree of knowledge and good and evil…eat only from the tree of life. Simply put, “Mind what God tells you to do”. If you disobey you will surely die or separate from God. One litte sin, one little act of disobedience. Look at all the havoc that the one little sin of Adam caused within humanity? Think about the little white lie.
How much knowledge does it take to be a truthful man? Truth in a Christians heart doesn’t come from knowledge. Truth comes from a clean heart. Would you believe a truthful man doesn’t lie? Only liars tell lies. Truthful men can become truthful and stay truthful by the power of the Grace of God. Truthful men aren’t concerned about white lies. Truthful men that are Christians do not lie nor do they excuse any kind of lie. To be honest there is no such thing as a “White Lie”.
Will one little lie send a Christian to Hell? Yes. The Bible says so!
Rev 21:8…all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
A truthful man can lie but if he does lie he is no longer a truthful man. Lies and Christianity don’t mix. Sin and Christianity doesn’t mix.
Mind Christ. Keep your heart clean by the Grace of God. Be the men and women God wants you to be. Let the Spirit of Truth cleanse your heart and control the tongue.
