Where falsehood is permitted, injustice and conflict thrive. God forbids the bearing of false witness in this ninth commandment, and yet lies and spin are all around us. We lie for personal gain at another’s expense, but as we listen to the true witness we’re empowered by the Holy Spirit to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.


Exodus 20:16
