Should You Have Told Him That?

Q. I am curious on this subject the person asked about Going To Hell For Lying. Do you think by your answer that the person might feel it is okay to lie since we won’t go to hell for it. Aren’t Christians to walk in the truth for it sets them free, the truth that is. Does that mean this man if he lies, will be in bondage?

A. Had I not told him we can’t go to hell for lying, I would have been lying to him. The truth that sets us free is that Jesus died for our sins and rose again (1 Cor 15:1-4). Sin is no longer our master because we are not under the law but under grace (Romans 6:14). Knowing that gives us the freedom to live a life more pleasing to God, out of gratitude for what He did for us. After all, it’s God’s kindness that leads us to repentance (Romans 2:4). It’s the people who live in constant fear of sinning who are in bondage.
