awesome answer Vlorsutes
You might want to fact check that about omission, you could start by asking Martha Stewart.
I agree with you dashingscorpio.
Ericdierker , There is never a reason to fact check one's "opinion"! A lie is in the eye of the beholder. If you have (not been asked a question nor answered one) in court with a "false answer" then you have not legally "perjured" yourself.
If you were my wife you would stick to it to get herself there on time. I look at my device and expect some push, that is cool I get our son there on time.
Interesting concept ytsenoh.
I do not condone lying in any form, but sometimes it is necessary if the sole purpose is to protect someone from being hurt. if the lie will hurt them in the long run, then don't do it.
Me too thanks for answering.
Go ahead ,exaggerating to bring joy seems harmless to me.
Just a little bit of poison,may seem harmless...but don't bet on it.
A small lie is just as bad as a hand full of trouble.
Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.
I don't do it to deceive, Apostle Jack. My listeners always know when I'm exaggerating. Like when you're hungry and you say I'm starving. Same concept.
I fell what you are saying Markie. But it is still a negative concept,no matter how small it is.
Not to do it at all will bring rewards to your spirit than a negative return for doing it.
Righteousness mean a lot to God. Even the small pieces.
Apl Jack: Compassion means a lot also. If you tell a lie to make a suffering person's day more tolerable, I think God will appreciate you sacrificing your own conscience for the sake of reaching out to comfort someone in need.
I believe lying is negative and does bring trouble also khmazz.
Me too rosaleelaws and trust goes right along the same path.
I agree celafoe.
Yes Lauren, it is human nature but some would disagree.
Very true Amy.
Interesting point of view. thank you ellocin27
Perhaps all of the habitual hyperbole has desensitized us to the virtue, value and stand-alone interest the real truth holds!
Thank you Ericdierker. I loved your answer.
Maybe you are right. But you should have seen the one that got away!
LMAO! "Had to have weighed a hundr'd pounds, I tell ya! Nearly snapped my rod in two it did! Reminds me uh the time I awmost reeled in a great white, Nearly tore my arm square off, swear m' life on it!" :)
True fact. I agree Apostle Jack.
