Lying, Do We Need to Do It?Lying, Do We Need to Do ItSome people tell lies for many reasons; to make them feel grand, to fit into groups or to allay fears of getting into trouble and of disappointing someone. Whatever the circumstance, the truth is always good. We cannot impress or satisfy everyone. Speaking the truth is a symbol of honesty, sincerity, and bravery. Sarcasm, gossip, lies, and deceit lead to sin, pain, and harm, in both the short and long term. Those who lie have to lie to themselves before they lie to others. Then they have to remember their lies or their words, because they may get caught later if they forget them. Those who lie often will not have a good memory. Lying is deception. Those who lie are neither lovable nor trustworthy. Lying, gossip, and sarcasm can often end up hurting other people’s feelings and can cause fighting as well. Those who do not lie will gain trust, security, and confidence. Instead of telling lies, good people usually practice moral veracity. “Moral veracity” is a combination of truth, politeness, benefit, and kindness-expressed at the proper times and in the proper situations. Before a person can practice moral veracity he or she must have a pure, kind, and good mind.
