We have heard these words repeated across the world in many courtrooms, and yet when under oath people will still lie! What about at the throne of God in the end of it all, would anyone still lie knowing their soul may see hell and not just a little while but for eternity? Sadly there will be such people as Revelation tells us of those who will not be written in the book of life. “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”. Revelation 20:14-15).
There are many who believe once saved always saved, yet this is not biblical as any one of us who have been saved by the grace of God could decide to not believe any more and turn from the truth we were once saved through. We have been given an example in scripture of this happening of the Israelite saved out of Egypt and stop believing! “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not”.(Jude 1: 3-5).
To sum it all up lying parts the company of friends and if we are not careful return to the old way of life which could put us in jeopardy of losing salvation for all eternity! The knowledge of Christ is the truth that sets us free, and no lie is of the truth. “I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth”.1 John 2:21).
