Bible Verses About Lying In Marriage
In a marriage, it’s important to be open and honest with your partner. When one of you lies, it can bring distrust into the relationship and can lead to a breakdown in communication. The Bible has plenty of verses regarding lying that apply to marriage relationships.
Lying and deceiving are only for the devil.
Lying and deception are tools of the devil. They are not tools that should be used in a marriage relationship, especially not to each other. The Bible clearly teaches that lying is wrong, and it is something we should strive to avoid in our everyday lives.
Lying is not only wrong in itself; it also leads to more serious sins like murder (Proverbs 6:16-19). We can see this by looking at how Joseph’s brothers planned to kill him by deceiving their father into thinking that he had been killed by wild animals when they threw him into a well (Genesis 37:5). They also lied about their brother Benjamin being dead so they could trick Jacob into giving them his beloved son back again (Genesis 42:1-2).
These examples show us why lying is so dangerous because once we start lying, our hearts become hardened towards each other as well as God Himself.
The Truth Shall Set You Free
The truth shall set you free from the bondage of sin.
The truth shall set you free from the bondage of lies.
The truth shall set you free from the bondage of deception.
The truth will set you free from manipulation, and it will give you freedom to be yourself!
God’s Character of the Truth
God is the very essence of truth. He is the one who defines what is real, true and accurate. He’s not a liar, so you can trust that His word is accurate and reliable. When you feel like lying to your spouse or stealing from them (and don’t already), remember that God says in Psalm 101:7: “I will not lie to David; his descendants I will never lie about.”
God hates liars (Proverbs 6:16–19). In fact, He called lying an abomination (Proverbs 6:16–19). If our lives are truly centered on God then we should hate lying as well!
Do Not Lie to Each Other
In marriage, you are not allowed to lie.
- Do not lie to each other about your feelings and intentions. A husband should always tell his wife how he feels. He should never hide his emotions or make excuses for them. If a woman wants her husband to be honest with her, then she needs to be honest with him as well.
- Do not lie about your actions or past relationships (even if you were married). It’s one thing for a man or woman who has been divorced before getting married again; but it’s another thing if someone has never been married before entering into marriage with another person who has been divorced in the past too! If either partner lies about such things in their lives then they’ll have problems later on down the line when those lies get uncovered — so why bother lying in the first place?
Walk in the truth and love one another
- Walking in the truth is a way to love one another.
- You can’t walk in the truth and lie to each other.
- If you don’t walk in the truth and love one another, then God will not answer your prayers or give you his blessings.
- When we walk in the truth, then our relationship with God grows stronger and we are able to do great things for others who need help because of our relationship with Him!
Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
1 Corinthians 5:11-13
But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
The Bible’s message is clear on this topic: don’t lie. Don’t lie to yourself; don’t lie to your spouse; don’t lie to your children; don’t lie to your friends; don’t even think about lying to your parents; and for goodness sake (and for all intents and purposes), whatever you do—don’t lie at work!
When we lie, we are showing deception and manipulation.
Lying is a sin in the eyes of God, and it can have a devastating impact on your marriage. Lying is a manipulation technique used to avoid consequences or get what we want. It’s also a way we hurt others by making them think that our words are true when they are not.
Lying is like poison; it spreads throughout our relationships and affects everyone involved. When we lie, we are showing deception and manipulation in the relationship. The Bible talks about this in Ephesians 4:25: “Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body.”
In the end, we should be very careful not to lie or deceive each other. The consequences can be devastating. When we lie, we are showing deception and manipulation. We must also remember that God hates lying because it is an act of rebellion against Him.
