I heard two different people—in the same week—say, 'Truth is relative.' Many people think 'truth' depends on the situation, what is at stake, and who they are.
A Bible study into the meaning of the Ninth Commandment: You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
Our best witness is often through our unspoken behavior; what we do speaks volumes. God gives us a charge to bear His name with dignity in all our actions.
Those who lie or swear falsely or deceive in any way prove themselves unreliable or untrustworthy and begin to undermine relationships.
Two articles, 'Why We Lie: The Science Behind Our Deceptive Ways,' and 'Why Do We Lie?' both proclaim that lying is expedient, therapeutic, and beneficial.
The world is so full of lying and other forms of deceit that 'bearing false witness' has become a way of life for the vast majority of humanity.
