Those that lie eventually become well known to their so called friends, who really don't trust them anymore and aren't really their friends. Lying can lead to a long line of many years of troubles. Proverbs 25:18 says a man that beareth false witness against his neighbor is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow. Exodus 23:1, thou shalt not rise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. So when you lie your joining the wicked in unrighteous acts going against the 9th commandment. Proverbs 19:9 says liars will not escape unpunished.
Be who you are as a Christian, people love to hear the truth. Make friends not enemies, feel confident in knowing your honest and have nothing to hide, there's nothing like a good nights sleep. Read Revelation 21:8, and know the seriousness of the 10 commandments. Deuteronomy 19:16-19, says what happens to those who bear false witness (lies). James 3:14 says, but if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. So we see here no matter what, we should tell the truth.

- Believe -
Stronger than I this power inside
now learning how to use this guidance,
out in the open with His Spirit I ride
for His glory and my radiance.
Call upon the Holy Spirit
let distractions slip away,
you'll know his voice when you hear it
talk to God everyday.
