Insight for Living with Chuck Swindoll

Stop Lying and Start Acknowledging, Part 1

febrero 21, 2017

Of all the bad habits we could address, few are more prevalent yet more acceptable than lying. As painful as it may be to hear it, ours is a nation of liars. One reliable survey reveals that 91 percent of Americans lie regularly. The majority of Americans find it hard to get through a week without lying. Unfortunately, this is true for believers almost as much as unbelievers. Christians are just as likely as non-Christians to falsify their income tax returns, commit plagiarism, bribe to obtain a building permit, shift blame onto someone else, illegally copy a computer program, and steal from the workplace. If we are not lying to others in the process, we are lying to ourselves. It is time for us to face it: lying is an ongoing habit that definitely needs to be exposed, analyzed, and ultimately, stopped. As we shall see, when Paul wrote to the believers in first-century Ephesus, he put it straight: “So stop telling lies” (Ephesians 4:25 NLT).
