Lately i have been starting to think that the only hope for the survival of mankind is to blast Stephen Hawking into space. That is, if space even existed.
However, i did have a new understanding from a previous misunderstanding. The Bible says in some Scriptures that all liars are going to hell. However, this is not necessarily so. We must also remember that Scripture tells us there is a time and season for everything under the sun. Even in Scripture we are told about how some of God’s servants tell lies. Such as Rahab, the harlot. Rahab told lies about the spies, and she was rewarded for lying, as it were.
The reason for this is because we are saved by being righteous, not by being perfect, and not by never doing anything “wrong”. Otherwise we would never be saved. We are saved by doing our best to obey God. Keeping God’s commandments and carrying out HIs Will, whatever it is. Now if God asks us to tell a lie, or tells us it’s OK, then it’s not a sin to tell a lie in that situation. Let your conscience be your Guide, in all things. For example, if you were dealing with a bunch of crooked liars who did nothing but tell lies about you and try to get you in trouble by expecting that you are bound to tell the Truth, and therefore you fall victim to their lying. In that way, liars would get away with murder, and honest people would be victimized by them. I am not recommending lying, or condoning lying in general terms. Of course we need to consult God with everything we do, but, as we already know, there is a time and place for everything under the sun. So we keep our focus on doing what is right, in our conscience, with God, and not getting hung up on the technicalities. We are saved by being righteous, not on technicalities. In a sense, we are saved by being perfect, because we need to remember that to God, we are being perfect when we are doing the best we can.
