God Always Tells the Truth
Construction Zone 3: The Goodness of God
Does God ever lie?
God never lies. He always tells the truth. Titus 1:2 – In hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began.
This Truth Makes
If we were to believe that God might lie to us, then we would not be able to trust Him or His Word. Can you remember a time when someone lied to you? What was your attitude toward that person, once you found out he or she had lied to you? What would your attitude be toward God if you were to discover that He had ever deceived you (told you something that was not true)?
God does not lie! If you think God has lied to you in any way, then you have been deceived! – but not by God. The enemies of God would like to make you believe that God does not always tell the truth. The enemies of God know that when you believe false (wrong, untrue) things about God, you will not want to trust Him or love Him or serve Him or have anything to do with Him.
The Bible even goes so far as to say that God cannot lie. Praise the Lord! God is always truthful. God is Truth. God’s Word is true. You can trust Him with everything you have! Never swallow lies about God.
John 17:17 – “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.”
