God Doesn’t Lie
1 Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ to further the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness— 2 in the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time, 3 and which now at his appointed season he has brought to light through the preaching entrusted to me by the command of God our Savior,
The study of physiological methods for deception tests measuring emotional disturbances began in the early 1900’s. Law enforcement wanted a device that they can use to question potential suspects and find out if they are telling the truth. Sometimes we ask children about something that was broken, and they only tell half the truth. They don’t want to get into trouble, so only part of the story is told.
When I started to read the Bible, I was told by some others that the Bible can’t be all true. There are too many contradictions for it to make sense. I later found out that most of these claims that are being made are from those who have not read the Bible for themselves or choose not to believe it for their convenience. When Paul was writing about the promise of eternal life, he described God as one who does not lie. I think about the promises that God made to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses. He kept His word to them and continued to be with them. God makes a promise to those who follow His son, Jesus and will not disappoint. God has a track record of telling the truth and anything that has been said thousands of years ago, has come true.
