Thou shalt not bear false witness!

Thou shalt not bear false witness!

Exodus 20:16

“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.”

So, we see hearings, court-room discussions, and testimonies on TV all of the time. Interesting that God wanted to give us a heads-up on how he feels about it, and how we need to operate.

It is very simple, God commands us to be honest!
