  • I asked a question earlier to all Christians:
    This is for Christians only please (part one)
    NO BASHING PLEASE I don’t want to offend anyone I just have a question. As a Christian do you think its okay to lie? 1john 3:8 brings out that those who lie originate with the devil for the devil has been lying from the beginning of time…… So with this said is it okay?
    Almost everyone answered no it’s not okay to lie except one person.

    •Answered at 12:58 PM on Dec. 3, 2008 by: I'm sorry, I respectfully disagree with Anon 12:55. All lies (sin) end up causing some kind of problem in the long run. If someone asks you your opinion, you should do everything you can to kindly tell them what you think, but you should not lie to them. And imo, lying to "keep you alive" is a lack of faith in God to protect you.

    Answered at 1:26 PM on Dec. 3, 2008 by: A lie is a lie and a sin is a sin and a lie is a sin!!! I agree that the Bible scripture you quoted really did already answer your question. Just trust God's Word and you will not go wrong... it is when we begin to question if we can manipulate it to suite our needs and desires that we tend to get into trouble of the worst kind!

  • 1john 3:8 brings out that those who lie originate with the devil for the devil has been lying from the beginning of time…….. If you tell your child about Santa... (He sees you when you’re sleeping he knows when you’re awake, he knows when you have been bad or good)... whose qualities are those? GODS you just gave god like qualities to a man who does not exist and you just gave him the powers that only god has. After your child finds out that Santa does not exist and that you lied.... might they question god? Maybe, maybe not. But keep in mind who sin/lying originates with (the devil). SO NOW YOU HAVE NOT ONLY LIED BUT ABOUT SOMETHING THAT DID NOT HAPPEN OR SHOULD NOT BE CELABRATED

  • It's not OK to lie. It's not OK to commit any sin as Chrisitans. So.. do Christians lie? christians do still sin, we will not be perfect until heaven.. we ask for forgiveness, repent and try not to repeat that sin. However, for the next part of your question... a christian can celebrate, observe, participate during the christmas season without lying.
