- Why  There  Won't  Be -
Liars  In  Heaven

There is an old saying, "A Person Is Only As Good As Their Word"

Their speech reveals their character.  If they always tell the truth, they can be trusted.

But if their speech is half lies and half truth or all lies, they cannot be trusted.  Not by their wives, not by their husbands, not by their children, not by their parents or their friends or anybody!

People who put their trust in "liars" who always seem to have an aliby or an excuse for why something didn't happen or why they couldn't do what they said they would do, will soon be dissapointed. And they will constantly be disappointed by that person.

We are told in 1st John, Chapter 1: verse 6,  that as Christians,  "If we claim to have fellowship with Jesus and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth."

"Do not lie to each other, since you have removed your old self with its sinful practices and have put on the new [spirtual] self, which is continuously being revived in knowledge,  in the image of its Creator."

"Colossians 3:9-10

Understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, the sexually immoral, and the sexually perverse men and women, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine, - 1 Timothy 1:9-10

In the book of John, Chapter 8: Verses 31-47, Many of the Jewish leaders who heard Jesus speak began believing him to be the Messiah.

Jesus said to them, “You are truly my disciples if you live as I tell you to, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

“But we are descendants of Abraham,” they said, “and have never been slaves to any man on earth! What do you mean, ‘set free’?”

Jesus replied, “You are slaves of sin,  every one of you.  And slaves don’t have rights,  but the Son has every right there is!  So if the Son sets you free,  you will indeed be free!

( Yes, I realize that you are descendants of Abraham! )  And yet some of you are trying to kill me because my message does not find a home within your hearts. I am telling you what I saw when I was with my Father.  But you are following the advice of your father.”

“Our father is Abraham,” they declared.

“No!” Jesus replied, “for if he were, you would follow his good example.  But instead you are trying to kill me — and all because I told you the truth I heard from God.  Abraham wouldn’t do a thing like that!  No, you are obeying your real father when you act that way.”

They replied, “We were not born out of wedlock — our true Father is God himself.”

Jesus told them, “If that were so, then you would love me, for I have come to you from God. I am not here on my own, but he sent me. Why can’t you understand what I am saying?  It is because you cannot hear my Word.

For you are the children of your father the devil and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning and he does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Because I speak the truth,  you cannot hear truth", [ and what you hear you don’t believe! ]

“Which of you can convict me of sin? No one!  And since I am telling you the truth, why don’t you believe me?

Anyone whose Father is God hears the words of God;  for this reason you do not hear them,  it proves that you are not God's children.”

Proverbs 6:16-19

There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him:  haughty eyes,  a lying tongue,  and hands that shed innocent blood,  a heart that devises wicked plans,  feet that make haste to run to evil,  a false witness who breathes out lies,  and one who sows discord among brothers.

Revelation 21:8

But as for the cowardly,  the faithless,  the detestable,  as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters,  and all liars,  their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”


Because Heaven already had one of those. His name was Lucifer, who was Satan  and convinced a third of the angels that 'He Should Be God!'

God judged Satan and the angels that believed his lie. They were thrown to Earth to await their judgement,  which is - to be thrown in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur,  forever.
