... line upon line ... Isaiah 28:10
Romans 9:1 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost. …
In order, look at the parts of this verse. I SAY THE TRUTH IN CHRIST: do you? Is what proceeds from your lips true, verifiable and honest? Not half-truths, twisted-truths or near-truths, but the whole truth? Be very careful already, as we are invoking the Name of the Saviour of all men, a Name that must not be misused to cover iniquity with.
I LIE NOT: are you sure of this? It is easy to lie out of fear, or not wanting to disappoint someone, or habit, or addiction, or just to get someone to leave you alone, or to avoid consequences. A lie can even be simply repeating a false rumour you have heard that has taken on a life of itself (easy to do in these days of much misinformation and disinformation)?
MY CONSCIENCE ALSO BEARING ME WITNESS: does it? It is easy to fool me with a lie, but I know that the conscience of that person is to some extent pricking them. Consciences may be soft or seared, sensitive or cold, but you will know if you speak a lie.
Remember that a lie is speaking against the truth, and we only lie when we know what the truth really is. IN THE HOLY GHOST: in Whom? Not your own mind, not your own justifications, not your own reasons, but in front of the Holy Ghost Himself.
I stand amazed at the number of people who have spoken a bald-faced lie to my face and not had a stroke of guilt or shame. But when a child of God lies, and that repeatedly, without apparent remorse, without repentance and seeking forgiveness from the one they lied to, this verse stands as stark testimony against their tongue.
To be sure, a child of God purposefully telling an untruth is not honest in Christ, is a liar, has a hard conscience and has a very damaged relationship with the Holy Ghost. A scary truth to be sure, as we all tell lies so easily. From this moment henceforth, let us speak the truth in love.
