When we lie, we do it to protect ourselves. From what? The truth.
We lie to hid, because we don’t want others to know who we really are, and we don’t want to be rejected. But understand, we are not protected by our lies, but being controlled by satan. There is no truth in a lie.
Be true to yourself. Be true to God. Accept who you are. Speak the truth.
I John 1:8 (KJV) – if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
II Corinthians 13:8 (KJV) – for we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
