Why do people believe a Lie before the Truth?

In Proverbs 6:16-19 There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: Today let us each examine each one of them and see just which one are we. I know some people will probably say that they are neither one, but I beg to differ because per God’s word for all have sin and fallen short of the glory of God.

Often, we read this verse and we move ahead to the next verses without giving it any thought about it. And I will be the first to say I do that at times, but when I come to verses like these where it talks about what God hates. I understand how merciful God is I also understand that God does not and will not ever put up with foolishness. He will not be mocked! It’s a sad thing when a person thinks that they are without sin.


1. A proud look – exalted eyes; those who will not condescend to look on the rest of mankind.
2. A lying tongue – he who neither loves nor tells truth.
3. Hands that shed innocent blood
4. A heart that devised wicked imaginations – the heart that fabricates such, lays the foundation, builds upon it, and completes the superstructure of iniquity
5. Feet that be swift in running to mischief – he who works iniquity with greediness.

6. A false witness that speaketh lies – one who, even on his oath before a court of justice, tells anything but the truth.

Seven are an abomination unto him – “to his soul.” The seventh is, he that soweth discord among brethren – he who troubles the peace of a family, of a village, of the state; all who, by lies and misrepresentations, strive to make men’s minds evil-affected towards their brethren.


Man’s words are like Open Graves

Numbers 23:19 says” God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

There Truthis not a day that goes by that I am just constantly amazed at just how awesome our GOD is.

Have you ever found yourself doing something or was thinking about something and you forgot the answer or how to figure it out and within moments the Lord will speak to you and give you the answer in which you were searching?

This happens to me more times than which I can count. And every time it happens I am so amazed. Many people count on things or people to depend on we take our friends words as comfort we hold fast to the connections of words spoken to us by famous people only to find out later that their words did not hold true.

God’s word will always hold true therefore I love this verse so very much it speaks so much to me. And I use it when critics try to tell me that no one person words are truth. I quote this verse letting them know that man’s words will fail. But I know a MAN whose words will never fail. When He speaks, His words are truth and they do just what He says His words will do. For my God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

By the time, I finish saying this those critics are left with their mouths shut for they have nothing to say. Today my friend you can rest on this for when the Lord says it you can count on it.
