Lying Can Cause a Person Bad Health and Ticket to Hell

Avoiding lies can improve health

ORLANDO — Honesty may boost your health, suggests a study that found telling fewer lies benefits people physically and mentally.
Each week for 10 weeks, 110 people ages 18-71 took a lie detector test and completed health and relationship measures assessing the number of major and minor lies they told that week, says lead author Anita Kelly, a psychology professor at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. She presented findings at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Association, which ended Sunday.
"When they went up in their lies, their health went down," Kelly says. "When their lies went down, their health improved."
Researchers instructed half the participants to "refrain from telling any lies for any reason to anyone." The other half got no such instructions.
The link between less lying and improved health was significantly stronger for participants in the no-lie group. When they told three fewer minor lies than in other weeks, for example, they had an average of four fewer mental-health complaints, such as feeling tense or melancholy, and three fewer physical complaints, such as sore throats or headaches.
Linda Stroh, a professor emeritus of organizational behavior at Loyola University in Chicago, says the findings are consistent with her research on trust. "When you find that you don't lie, you have less stress," she says. "Being very conflicted adds an inordinate amount of stress to your life."
Research has suggested Americans average 11 lies a week. Kelly says the no-lie group was down to one lie, on average, a week. For both groups, when participants lied less in a given week, they reported that their physical and mental health was significantly better that week.
"It's certainly a worthy goal to have people be more genuine and interact with others in a more honest way," says psychologist Robert Feldman of the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. "That would be ultimately beneficial. I'm a little skeptical that it makes us all healthier, but it may make us healthier in a psychological way."

When Comes to Lying and The Word of God

Proverbs 17:4 says, "A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue."

Proverbs 19:22 says, "The desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar."

Proverbs 6:16-19 says, "These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren."

Leviticus 19:11-12 says, "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.  And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord."

St. John 8:44 says, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."  When you lie and don't repent, your just like your father the devil. The fruit that you bear by lying, shows your not a child of G-d, but of Satan because lying is a prime characteristic of him. 

Repent: Stop Lying and You Will Prosper

Psalm 24:4-5 says, "He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully. He will receive blessing from the LORD and righteousness from the God of his salvation."

3 John 1:2 says, "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." The Lord wants liers to stop lying, and repent so He can prosper them in the area of health by living a holy sanctified lifestyle. Lying impacts your health in a negative way, it gives Satan and his demons legal acccess inflict your body with diseases.

Matthew 3:8 says, " Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance." Genuine repentance will manifest righteous lifestyle from a person.

Proverbs 28:13 says, " He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy." By telling one lie after another to cover your tracks, the end result you won't prosper in Jesus Christ.

Failure to Repent Liars Will Reap The Lake of Fire 

Revelation 21:8 says, "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

To all liars you will reap the same inheritance of your father Satan the father of lies, which is eternal damnation in The Lake of FireRepent!
