Most Christians believe that the command “Thou shalt not lie” is in the Ten Commandments. It’s not. Did you know that? Check it for yourself (the Ten Commandments are given in Exodus 20 and repeated in Deuteronomy 5). You won’t find it though…
So does that mean that you *can* lie? To use Paul’s words, God forbid! Just because it isn’t written in the “Ten Commandments” doesn’t make it any less of a commandment from God (of the Bible). Here it is in just a few other places in the Bible (there are many more):
“Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.”
Going right in hand with this site and the warnings that I’m trying to convey, Paul discusses teachers and preachers who would try to make you believe something that is not in line with Scripture (one of the signs of the end times):
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;”
1st Timothy 4:1-2
But perhaps the most damning discussion on lying comes directly from Jesus Christ Himself in the book of John in which He addresses the Pharisees and talks about the devil:
“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.”
Notice that Jesus said that Satan is the father of lying! And the god of Islam both approves of and encourages lying! It isn’t a far stretch to make the connection that Satan *IS* the god of Islam! There is no way that the two gods can be the same – the God of the Bible would NEVER approve of lying and would NEVER encourage it!
But the god is Islam certainly does – let’s look at his direction to his followers:
Taqiyya is lawful deception, a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution (in other words, if you’re around a group of people who understand that the god you serve has demanded that you kill them, but you are in the minority and trying to do so would result in you getting killed yourself, just lie about who / what you are and try to fit in so as to avoid persecution).
Here are some references and explanation from the Quran (paraphrased from thereligionofpeace.com):
Qur’an (16:106) – There are circumstances in which a Muslim can tell a lie.
Qur’an (3:28) – Muslims must not befriend those who are not Muslims, unless it is to “guard themselves.” This one flies directly in the face of those “Christians” teaching Chrislam.
Qur’an (9:3) – “…Allah and His Messenger are free from liability to the idolaters…”
Qur’an (40:28) – A man is introduced as a believer, but one who must “hide his faith” among those who are not believers.
Qur’an (2:225) – “Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts” This explains why Muslims are allowed to lie to their spouses.
Qur’an (66:2) – “Allah has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths”
Qur’an (3:54) – “And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.” (Goes hand-in-hand with John 8:44). The Arabic word used here for scheme (or plot) is makara, which literally means deceit. Monkey see, monkey do…the Muslim will do exactly as his false god and pervert prophet do.
Have you heard of Sharia Law? This is Islamic law and is summarized in one book called “Reliance of the Traveller” (that is correctly spelled with two l’s). This is the book that Muslims use to uphold their law system when living abroad (in areas where Islam is not the dominant legal system). Here for your delight is the quote from Reliance of the Traveller that addresses lying:
“Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible (i.e. when the purpose of lying is to circumvent someone who is preventing one from doing something permissible), and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory… it is religiously precautionary in all cases to employ words that give a misleading impression…”
It goes on to say “One should compare the bad consequences entailed by lying to those entailed by telling the truth, and if the consequences of telling the truth are more damaging, one is entitled to lie.”
Reliance of the Traveller, P.745, Section r8.2 (all of section r8.0 is titled “Lying”)
So it’s clear that in Islam, to lie is not a sin (regardless of the fact that the Muslim will *LIE* to you in telling you that the Quran prohibits lying!) Christian, you MUST read these references for yourself and learn your enemy (Satan). Know that he has created a political system that masquerades itself as a religion and is dead-set against you and all that God (of the Bible) stands for. The god of Islam is not the God of the Bible and…
Jesus is NOT in the Quran!
