Many of the laws of Leviticus are still relevant now, and lying is one of those laws. God’s people are commanded not to lie about anything. If our lying results in the loss of property from our brothers or sisters, then we are commanded to restore that lost property. This is part of the cost for lying. The offerings given to God are often assigned to the things we did that we should not have, in other words, breaking God’s law. In Leviticus 6, we begin to understand the deep-seated problem of lying. Lying becomes a lifestyle; it changes how we perceive others and ourself. Today many people lie and don’t even think about it. In fact, it can become so easy to lie that they can lie to themselves without hesitation. But if you are a Christian, you must be honest to others and yourself. That is why Paul says we ought to “take captive every thought” against the knowledge of God and pretension ( 2 CORINTHIANS 10:5). The truth is a good way to move forward when you come to know Jesus Christ as your LORD. After all, a lie is the opposite of God.
