It is obvious, however, that the

The liar is always under neces-

telling another lie—to cover his

Jesus taught the great virtue of ,
simple living and simple speech. A ;
plain “yes" or “no” is usually suf-
ficient for the situation. Qualifying
words are apt to lead us astray.
The life of a Christian should be so
true and above board that no oath
should be needed to assure one of
his sincerity and honesty.
Since not all are Christians, it is
a necessity that men be placed un-
der some kind of oath or affirmation
in judicial matters. Hence we need
not interpret this Scripture as for-
bidding an cath in court.
It may be well to say a word
shout swearing in general. It is all
too common among men, women
and children. No Christian should
ever be guilty of it, or that which
sounds like it. We need admoni-
tion and correction at that point.

The devil is a liar, and the father
of lies. Liars are members of his
family. Jesus said it, “Ye are of
your father the devil.”
Liars had better consider their
“family tree” and see how they like
their spiritual father. He is lustful,
murderous, arid there is no truth in
him (v. 44). If you belong to that
family would you not like to change
families and be born again into

The great lie within the church,
and one of Satan’s prize exhibits,
is the falsehood of modem religious
liberalism (so-called) which is es-
sentially a denial of real New Testa-
ment Christianity. Jesus said (v.
42) that if God is our Father we
will accept Him as the Christ. The
one who speaks sweet words about
the example, the manhood, the lead-
ership of the Master and who denies
Him His place as God is clearly in
mind here as a follower of the fa-
ther of lies.

The claims he made for Himself
as the Son of God and the Saviour of
the world are plain and unmistak-
able. If we deny them we either
make Jesus a liar, or we lie our- '
selves, and it is obvious that the
latter is the case.
