Lies are one of the main reasons to disagreement between couples or friends. It´s the worst blemish in a human being. It´s also a weapon, used by those who want to hide from a situations. But, even though is a common thing among ourselves nowadays, there are still some people who find difficult to detect wheter is a lie or not. There are so many kinds of it, merciful, big or small, uttered by love or pity, by costume or chance, you can see lies in the face of who´s telling them. They are easy to detect, by the tone of voice, the questions and answers of the lier... or maybe even in his postures, and reactions.

Don´t let yourself to be deceived or manipulated with lies. But remember, that in order to achieve it we have to decide if we want to be clear and transparent people. Between truth and lies, God´s Word determines a very strong difference, and overall, thruthfull results that we may want to keep in mind: Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue lasts only a moment. (Proverbs 12: 19) NIV.

Truth is tighly linked with life and its span. Lie brings trouble, binds and affects a big deal people´s lives. The lier never looks at the eye when he talks, he lowens the sight. The lier tends to touch his neck or face while speaking. He moves his head in a mechanic way. When he is faking, some expressions limit only to the face area, and not to the whole face. His gestures disagree with his words. E.g. love words frowning, or a pleasure expression with the fist closed tight.

The lier knows how to use words in order to make his plot. And because, he wants you to buy it, he doesn´t have time to think, so he would answer you using your own phrases, but in a negative way. As an example, he would give you information that you never asked for, this until he thinks that you are convinced. Truthful people wouldn´t care if you misunderstand one of their words, because there will be always an explanation for it. The most other person stress to convince you, the most you have to worry.

The one who says lies, doesn´t answer directly. As an example: sometimes he reflects his real feelings with words uttered without consciousness, filtered by his subconscious. An spontaneous answer is the best reflect of a truthful people. On the other hand liers are not natural and spontaneous, there is always a little delay in expression, or the endurance of the expression is too exaggerated and disppears abruptly. When someone is confident with what he says, his interest is mainly to make you understand his concept, rather than what you think of him. Be always careful of those who keep on asking if you believe in them. The one who tells you the truth is the one who´s giving confidence for granted.

Liers are not questioners, they are interested only in convincing you, rather than to ask you. When you change the lying subject, the lier becomes easier and quieter. In a fake story the missing element is "what turned wrong".

It´s possible to lie for some time, and get benefited in some way from it. But you cannot lie all your life, deceiving, bribing and making fun of innocent people. God has designed our lives in such a way, that sooner or later we harvest what we have sawn. Christ Jesus said: What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs. (Luke 12:3). He knows the intimate secrets of our heart, and he judges and condemns evil not only in this life, but in eternity.

There´s nothing better than to live a clean life before the eyes of God and of men. It´s better that we never deceive anyone, nor give fake testimony of our lives, no matter what happens. Why do we have to suffer unnecessary consequences? We have to give our lives to Christ Jesus. He is willing to change our life once and forever.
