Liars

Over the years, I have noticed a phenomenon. That is that liars want to be known as truth tellers. They insist on it. A truth teller does not care that people do not believe him. He is secure in knowing that he told the truth. The liar will not rest until the hearer tells him that he believes him. His security is in people believing him, not in that he told the truth.

Liars are deathly afraid of being called liars. Even when the liar has evidence presented to him to show him that you know what he said is false, he will still insist that he told the truth. He lies about his lies. He lies to himself and believes himself. The liar has great difficulty telling the truth and great difficulty believing the truth. The Bible says it this way, “evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived” (II Timothy 3:13).
