“So then, get rid of lies. Speak the truth to each other, because we are all members of the same body.”
Ephesians 4.25 GW
Lies do harm. Honesty blesses others. Why then do harm to yourself by lying, since Christians all belong to the body of Christ?
Some people disfigure parts of their bodies. We wonder why they would do this. But many Christians harm Christ’s body with dishonesty and hypocrisy.
