(Pro 12:13 KJV) The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.
Some people look for “transgression” (6588). This is talking about lying in its many forms. I like the idea of a “transgression of the lips.” We have a culture that is making so many accommodations to dishonesty that it is frightening. In politics we call it “spinning.” In business we call it “advertizing.” In the church we call it being “seeker friendly”. In our personal lives we call it “tact.” Sometimes those difference are real, too often they are lies. We need to remember that when the residents of the lake of fire are listed, liars are right there in their midst. It is not a small thing, it is eternal. It is what evil men do. The reformation should start in the church.
