Verses of the Day on Echo Scapegoat Recovery Tactics© 2017. Some of what the Bible has to say about truth and lying. "However, when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth." John 16:13, (the Holy Spirit = truth) as opposed to "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies." John 8:44 (See John 8:31-47 for fuller context of Jesus speaking about God's true children, and who He is talking to. The point I am trying to make is don't allow an abusive Pharisee to project this onto you.)

"The attitude and actions of these leaders clearly identified them as followers of the devil. They may not have been conscious of this, but their hatred of truth, their lies, and their murderous intentions indicated how much control the devil had over them. They were his tools in carrying out his plans; they spoke the same language of lies. Satan still uses people to obstruct God's work." - NIV Footnote Commentary on John 8:44

*Pharisees - a self-righteous hypocrite, among other things. Remember, Jesus came down hardest on the Pharisees, (brood of vipers) the arrogant, pretentious teachers of the law of that day.
