Are all lies evil? Why is it not good to lie? Lying is one of the original sins on earth. It was the one used by the serpent to seduce Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, which led to the fall of mankind to sin. But what is lying?
The purpose of lying is to deceive or withhold the whole truth. A half truth and half lie is still a lie, and even a white lie is still a lie. The Bible is clear that it is the Devil who is the father of lies and so Christians should steer away from it.
In the Book of Revelation, the Apostle John wrote that all liars will have their part in the lake of fire, which is the second death. The only way out of it is for a person to put his faith in Jesus Christ as his only Lord and Savior.
