It seems that Wisconsin has more champion liars than any other place – except one!
Why do we lie?
We lie to save our own skin, we lie to gain, and we’ll lie to get someone else in trouble.
I have often said about a particular person that you can tell when he’s lying because his lips move.
It is written You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Ex 20:16
Now that sounds rather judicial as if we are testifying for or against someone.
But every time you speak to someone you are giving a testimony; a testimony of your honesty and integrity.
If the ninth commandment isn’t strong enough then beware of what comes next.
It is that one place that will exceed the Wisconsin population of good liars; all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. Rev 21:8
That’s one crowd I don’t want to join and I’m not lying!
