Little white lies. Shading the truth. Embellishment. Tall tales. Noble lies.

We have all kinds of names for them when we want to sidestep or look away from the naked truth of trading in dishonesty and deception.

We lie for big reasons and for small ones. To avoid conflict, to look better in someone’s eyes, or to duck responsibility. We tell some lies to one another. The more insidious ones tend to be the ones we tell ourselves.

So…how big a deal is a lie?

What kind of impact do they have on our relationships, our character, even our own mental health? Is there such a thing as a good lie?

How seriously should we take that statement about the Devil being the ‘father of lies’?

Today’s program has a different flavor than some of our rowdier ones, but it’ll make you stop and think. And isn’t that what talking about God and his word is supposed to do when we encounter it?

Prefer to take your show to go with the audio version?

No sweat.
