Everybody lies? When do you tell a lie? Do you even remember that
November 1, 2009 4:12pm CST
Parents tell lies to their kids and wives tell lies to their partners. The students tell lies to their teachers and the workers tell lies to their boss. With the same breath, for example, parents tell their kids that, if they are not good, Santa Claus will not bring them any presents. They also urge their offspring to leave their teeth under the pillow so the Tooth Fairy will reward them. The students may tell the teacher they had made a great progress though they wouldn't be so sure! It was said that lots of Americans have affairs. It's so awkward to say it. Is that true? haha, sorry! Don't get angry! So, my question is, are you even aware that you are telling lies sometimes? Do you even remember one of your lies? Do you have any impressive lie that had been told by yourself?

The bible tells us that lying is sin. There is no division between little "white" lies and big black ones. Because of this, I always try to tell the truth. There have been low points in my life when I have deviated from this. However, I have since asked forgiveness for my error and do not wish to beat myself up over it any longer. There is another reason to always tell the truth. In the long run it is the most convenient thing to do. One does not always have to remember which version of they told to whom. Did I tell Mary that I liked her dress best, or did I tell Helen that?

My parents never told us that Santa or the Tooth Fairy were real. I understand why parents do tell their kids these things, but my parent's thinking was that they didn't want their kids to ever question if they were lying or not. Lying was a big no no in our family. And I have to say my parents did raise some honest kids. My sister and I tell the truth - sometimes when we really should keep our mouths shut. Although, I do admit when someone asks if they look fat (and they really do look fat), I don't tell them that. I try to reword my answer so that I don't lie, but I don't have to tell them that, yes, they look fat. Know what I mean?

Oh, even if we tell lies somehow to the fat people, they are kind lies that will make them happy! Whatever we tell them, they won't change any thinner or fatter. So it is wise to make the guys happy! You don't tell lies. I believe that you must be a good person! Take care!
