Wow on that last paragraph. Reading the translation of the Hebrew words for “bear false witness” from Exodus 20:16 and Deuteronomy 5:20, it can be more accurately rendered in English as “speak lying testimony”. Try again, Smith.

We didn’t do the whole Santa Claus, Easter Bunny thing with our kids for just this reason. I couldn’t look my kids in the eye and lie to them. They’re all adults now, love Christmas and have no problem with our not playing the Santa Claus game. People used to tell me we were taking all the fun out of Christmas, but nothing could have been further from the truth.

This is the same stuff state-controlled media was saying about Clinton in the “I did not have sex with that woman” era.

Lance Armstrong may have been branded liar and cheat of the month, but experts say he's not as different from the rest of us as we’d like to believe.

This is BS with an agenda. Sure, if someone asks me how I'm doing, I might say "I'm fine" even if I'm anything but.

However, if someone knows better and says so, I don't think I'll tell the world they're lying about me and then sue them, only to later cry to Oprah how they were telling the truth all along.

Speaking of liars, what is the real intent of the author of this article?

OK; to give testimony is to provide evidence in court to facts.

How is that different than bearing witness?

I believe the intent of the commandment is that one is not to give false evidence to a court and I have heard biblical scholars say as much.

We all tell ‘white lies’, I sure don’t want to tell someone their new baby is ugly. But - Armstrong told lies for his own glory and gain, and that makes it very wrong.

Desmond Morris pointed out that most people are very poor liars, but often get away with it because most people are also very bad at detecting lies.

There was a show on Discovery channel a few years ago, ‘Secrets of Interrogation’, despite the salacious title it was in great part about how cops and others tell if someone under interrogation is lying. Once the telltales were pointed out it was much more obvious.

Truly good ‘liars’ can make a lot of money, be it in sales. acting or politics.

Then “experts on deception” lie too. Being experts they’re probably better at it.
