Hiding and Lying Lead to Isolation & Loneliness
Lying or hiding things may help you avoid conflict in the moment, but usually lead to an explosion later. It also holds you back from deep friendship, leaving you with surface level friends who abandon you when life gets hard.
* Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 ESV
* Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. Ephesians 4:25
* ...He (Satan) was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44
