Person Who Tells Falsehood

Updated on May 18, 2014

How can we distinguish when a person tells falsehoods?

What is truth?” retorted Pilate. (John 18:38)

Lies are all over our existence, but really should we be preoccupied trying to know who is lying. Wouldn't it be more comfortable to know what truth is about? Have we all lied in this life? I am guilty of this sin. There was a time when I was a teenager that I was so good at lying. I got scared of myself because I felt proud of being such a good liar. Thank God I discerned that it was better having freedom of truth than having to remember untruth details. It felt so good the release of having to lie upon lie, upon lie; one lie doesn't sustain by itself.

A lie gives birth to lies and here is when evil plays with your peace, joy and salvation. The sad part is that others get hurt by a person who tells falsehood. This is why we need to change our falsehood words to true words.

When is truth a lie?


A person that tells falsehoods

A person that tells falsehoods uses untrue statements. This person has absence of truth or accuracy. This person practices lying. This person is a:

  • cheater
  • deceiver
  • pretender
  • falsifier
  • perjurer
  • troublemaker
  • distorter
  • faker
  • dishonest
  • palterer

lies are lies
lies are lies
Not liars but lies
Not liars but lies

A lie is a lie

Lies do not have colors or sizes. A lie is a lie. It is false, not true. How many times we think that a little lie excuses a bill to be paid. How many times we think we got away pretending to be sick. My object here is not to bring shame, or judgment. It is to give light that by staying in truth is a better is the only way to stay unhidden.

Staying in the truth; keeps us joyful, peaceful and alive.

John 8:42 - 44 says:

Jesus said to them, If God were your Father, you would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do you not understand my speech? even because you cannot hear my word. You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Actions of the father of lies

evil actions
evil actions

Proverbs 6: 16-19

"There are six things which the LORD hates,
Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:

Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood,

A heart that devises wicked plans,

Feet that run rapidly to evil,

A false witness who utters lies,

And one who spreads strife among brothers."

Do you think that God doesn't know about our human condition? He does! That is why He gives us the way out. If you need help I encourage you to seek truth in The Word of God.

Lies are like natural disasters

Have you seen the effects of a tsunami, a volcano irruption, a tornado, or a is devastating! It kills all sort of life: people, animals, and plants. These effects are no different from those of lies.

Some effects of lies may be: broken marriages, heart broken parents, and the deep sadness of guiltiness. Perhaps lairs will keep their path like if nothing ever happened...but, the experience is that it will come to light one day or another.

Falsehood quotes

We have to love the liar

Lies do hurt and are totally an unnecessary evil. A liar is a person who needs to be loved. It is not easy, better would be to kick them. If you know the truth it will set you free. We don't need to suffer for other's lies. We need to love them and forgive them.

The liar needs to know that they are deceiving themselves. They are the one that will pay for their actions of misleading. Giving false statements or impressions should only concern the one that chooses to do so. The truth always comes out, because the only hidden thing is a lie (for a short moment).

We need to forgive the sinner of lies.

Matthew 6:14

The truth

"Pilate therefore said to him, Are you a king then? Jesus answered, You say that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Every one that is of the truth hears my voice." (John 18: 37)

Don't listen to the father of lies but do surrender to our Creator, Lord and Savior. Let's love one another and walk with the truth until th end of our days!

I extend an invitation to be part of the group "Humanity One World" with the goal of being better one by one.

Blessings to all!

      My dear sister from Rocky Mountains your words made my heart rejoiced. I love honest people like you. I feel and smell trueness from your tabs. Yes, we are like clay in the love and mercy of our Creator, Lord and Savior. We all are sinners and when we surrender by faith Proverbs 4:18 says ..."But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, That shines brighter and brighter until the full day.". I am so deeply joyful that you are on that path. Be blessed!

      lastheart, Thank you for such an awesome hub of love. It truly made me to think of where I came from. Oh I was major lie. For me mostly to build myself up into what I was not and look all better. I tried to fill the longing inside with all the wrong things. When I got sober the Lord worked firstly on my language that changed from ----it to love it. Second was the lies. He made us in His image. He is the truth way and life. Lies seemed to slip away from me not because of what I did but what He has done. He defeated the enemy for us. As you said so eloquently in your writing no lie is good. A lie is a lie. I am sure there is still work to be done in me. For the grace of God He is the potter, we the clay. It is like when we find Him and fall in love with Him we want to please Him. Your hub moved on my heart girl. Please send a hug to froggy. I do pray all is wonderful with you two lovebirds. Sending a hug your way as well. My love in Christ Jesus. Skye

      Froggy213 thanks! Yes, I agree with you that we teach to lie. To a certain extension I guess we do not know the implications of lying. Praying that we all stop doing so, if we are.

      Very good way of attacking this huge problem in the world. We sometimes teach our children to lie when we tell them little white lies or have them tell lies for us. "Tell them I'm asleep, or not home," was one I would ask my children when they were small. I didn't realize I was teaching them to lie. Good hub and I hope we all can learn from it.

      Jackie Lynnley thanks for ready and sharing your experience. I also know serious liars. I hope these words will make them know that the truth is a better option.

      Billy thanks for always opening your heart. Bad habits are tough to break, but like you, there are so many that choose to do so, and they find victory.

      I have known some serious liars and it is not a pretty sight. They get to believe their own lies i think and then add to them. Hope your hub hits home with the ones who need it. ^

      In all honesty, Maria :) this was a tough lesson for me to learn. With alcoholism, lying becomes a way of life, and it is hard to break those habits. It took me years to reach the point where the truth did not frighten me and I was willing to share it always. Now that I do I am free.

      blessings always
