Let's get one thing straight from the start;there is no "little white lie".From the first word in Genesis until the last word in Revelation ,in God's word there is no distinction,or degree,of lie.In fact,God regards lying as an abomination. Now ,let's get to what the Bible has to say on the subject. Pr:12 vs 22-Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord:but they that deal truly are his delight.
Now,moving on, notice the other things listed, along with lying,in Revelation 21 vs 8.But the fearful and unbelieving and the abominable,and murderers,and whoremongers,and sorcerers,and idolators and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone,which is the second death.God puts lying in some serious company.
One last look at the consequences of lying,in this case to the Holy Spirit. Go to Acts Chapter 5 beginning at verse 1 and read the account of Ananias and his wife Sapphira.Both of these lied and both fell dead.verse 5;And Ananias hearing these words fell down and gave up the ghost:and great fear came on all them that heard these things.Then verse 10;Then she fell down straightway at his feet,and yielded up the ghost:and the young men came in, and found her dead,and,carrying her forth,buried her by her husband.
Just a quick look,in my concordance, at the words lie,liar,liars etc. show me more than 80 verses about lying.So it's a serious thing and God's mind has not changed since he wrote the book.
