Hello Miles. I don’t think so. Personally I have a dislike for lies. However we do not live in an absolut world. So sometimes lies are needed. So I look at why a person lies. Do they do it for their own gain? Do they do it to get something wrongly from another? Do they do it to help another or to save a life? SO I can say a christian could be a good person despite lying, however as you suggest, can he fulfill the commandment to not lie against another. I do not have enough education on the bible commandment to not bear false witness to know what the loopholes it allows, or how strict they take it. To me a much better question is can a christian be a good person. If you get your morals from the bible which has such horrendous harmful immoral actions listed as good acts of God, then can you be a good person? That is the real question don’t you think? Be Well my friend. Hugs

As everyone may know I support a bunch of causes. I sometimes pull stuff off the web I believe to be open to doing so. I always give credit when and where possible and I include the link to the original. If someone has a legitimate right to something posted, and you ( they ) wish it removed, simply email me at the email address above. I will removed items belonging to others that they do not wish posted here gladly, however I will not remove content simple because it is disliked or the cause it supports is against someones wishes. If your wish is to get me to removed content you simply dislike but don't own, I will not remove it. If you can show me that you do own the rights to something, I will be more than happy to remove it. Again this requires you to write me an email stating what item(s) in question, your ownership, and a request to remove it. I will respond to all such requests given sufficient time. Thanks and good surfing to you.
