God has made no distinction; a lie is a lie, no matter what color man may call it.

But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (Revelation 21:8)

For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (Revelation 22:15)

Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. (Ephesians 4:25)

If you're asked a question that you don't want to answer, then say nothing at all; don't make up a white lie about it. We must be diligent to live free from sin. God has given us clear warnings about sin.

Thinking of all the lies I have said since my birth, I'm scared I'll burn in fire and brimstone

Son/Daughter keep going - you'll get it next time....

Oh, please......

Son/Daughter keep going - you'll get it next time.... Son or daughter keep pushing on....
Mommy, do you like my painting? Not really.

Given this logic, I guess we can spare the unbelievers feelings by telling them there is no hell; we wouldn't want to offend them, would we?

His truth keeps marching on.

It is frequently more important to me to go by 'Love is patient and kind', New Testament.

God makes the final decision. Several parables would support this.

Paradoxical religion.

Jesus said, He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. (Matthew 10:37)

Shall we cast away God's Word to please men? God forbid.

Once it's established that you are a person of truth, you might be surprised how people will respond, and those silly questions may not be asked anymore.

Dissertations have been written and it is still going to require 'common sense'.

We live in a diverse society.

I know I am not going to tell my neighbor that she talks too loud on her cell phone at times. I like my neighbor but my dog barks when he hears certain sounds. I don't know why but he does.

My neighbor is a Christain, of a different denomination and different generation, vocational calling, etc

There has been more than enough discussion. jmo.

I sometimes wonder what God thinks of all the discussion. If it is 'worthwhile' then I suppose He approves.
