XV.1. Are There Any Lies in the Bible?

Question: Does the Bible have any lies in it?

Answer:  Yes, God’s word records the lies of many people; but God, Himself, does not lie. In 1 Samuel 15, Saul lied to Samuel about destroying the Amelekites.

God, in the Book of Esther, recorded the wicked lies of Hamaan to the king in his quest to destroy the Jews.

In Jeremiah 27:14-16, the lies of the false prophets are recorded.

In Jeremiah 28, the lies of Hananiah are revealed.

In Jeremiah 29:24-32, the lies of Shemaiah are recorded.

In Genesis 3:4, Satan contradicted God and lied to Eve saying,

"Ye shall not surely die";

...but, she did.

In Genesis 12, God recorded Abraham’s lie to the Egyptian king that Sarah was his sister, and not his wife.

Yes, God records the lies of people, BUT He never lies TO His people. Satan is still propagating his lies that mankind evolved from a monkey; there is no Hell; death ends it all and that Christ is not the Savior; that you are your own God, and etc. This is also the New Age Philosophy.

In Romans 3:4 we are told

"Let God be true but every man a liar;"

"It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man" -Psalm 118:8

Satan has taken many into Hell through his lies (2 Corinthians 4:4); BUT, God never lies!

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:16
