The Deception
of Bearing
FALSE WITNESS

“Thou Shalt Not Bear
FALSE WITNESS
Against Thy Neighbour.”

Exodus 20:16

FalseWitness There is a big difference between a LIE and BEARING FALSE WITNESS.

A lie is saying something to misdirect guilt or wrongdoing, or telling a story to make you 'look good,' but when you bear false witness, the goal is to deceive others by making someone else LOOK BAD.

There’s an old saying that says “everything you want to know about life, you learned in high school” - and there is a lot of truth in that! There were always certain kids in power - the Ra-Rahs, Jocks and especially the Journalism kids who in particular praised (or neglected) certain events, people or groups, and in the gossip mill these self-same kids either validated or vilified others based on their jealousy or unapproval.

Sadly we commonly see this today where slander and mocking others that they disagree with has evolved from a sport to a calculated strategy to destroy others or alter people’s perception of times and truth.

Remember friend - God is not mocked for the Bible says:

“No one is hidden from God’s sight, but
All are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to
whom we must all one day give account.”

Hebrews 4:13

We cannot prevent others from bearing false witness, but let us always be careful to guard our words and also the thoughts of our heart, because our grace and mercy depends on it. (Jeremiah 17:10)
