I am placing this question in this forum because I am of the opinion it is a moral issue.
I have read many threads relating to gay marriage, bikinis, and many other moral issues. I have yet to read a thread devoted to lying. There may be one, I have just never read it.
I am quite sure everyone here thinks lying is sinful. However, the question I ask is why is so little attention devoted to lying by comparison to other sins? My position is lying is a ‘closet sin.’ I say it is a ‘closet sin’ because despite being one of the Ten Commandments – not bearing false witness - lying receives little attention by comparison to, among others, homosexuality, adultery, and being modest. Why is that?
Revelation places lying in the same category as adultery, fornication and homosexuality. That being the case, why do we devote so little attention to lying than, for example, dressing modestly? I think it is worse to tell lies about someone than wear a short skirt.
Thoughts? Why do we devote so little attention to lying?
