Honesty Part 1

” But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ Whatever is more than these is of the evil one. ” Mathew 5:37

Sometimes It may seem like we may need to lie to accomplish some kind of good, however, this is a deception set up from the evil one. The means of an action must justify to the ends. Ends and means must be both in accord to God’s law. Lying is a sin against the 8th commandmant, in which we are commanded not to lie, even if it is to save someone’s life. If we trust in god, we should answer the question posed nothing more or nothing less and trust in God’s will.
