16 The Lord hates six things; in fact, seven are detestable to him: 17 arrogant eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood…
God hates a liar because lying is the language that belongs to the devil.
Everything that comes from the mouth of Jesus is the truth because He is the standard of truth. Everyone who belongs to the Lord speaks the truth and nothing false is found in them, for the Spirit of the Living God dwells in them.
Lying destroys a person’s faith, friendship with others, and a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Lying is like cancer which eats one’s soul until he is no more.
