Liars follow in the way of the father of lies, the devil.
44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Lying is contrary to Jesus Christ, who is truth.
6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
Liars do not walk in the way of Christ.
I John 2:22-23
22 Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist -- he denies the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
I John 4:20-21
20 If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. 21 And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.
Therefore the Lord hates lying and liars
16 There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.
Liars will be punished
5 A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who pours out lies will not go free.
9 A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who pours out lies will perish.
28 A false witness will perish, and whoever listens to him will be destroyed forever.
8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars -- their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."
Lord, keep falsehood and lies far from me.
8 Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread.
