  Nothing like hearing the truth about lies and those who justify them. I always liked Richard Baxter. Anyone know where I can find the original writing online?

Thanks but that's not the original writing of Richard Baxter, it's an audio sermon. I'm looking for the original writing by Richard Baxter from which this audio was drawn. But thanks for responding.

Careful, I said that about a lot of posts, but someone always did.  :'(

  Hypocrisy and bias knows no bounds. It is a great Video though, very contemporary, practical and cutting.

I'll have you know that there are lies that can be justified. And to prove it, I can give you many Reformed authors who say so. Like Rhab the Harlot. So don't be so cocky with your condemnations of Trump (yes, I know that's who you're talking about). Was Rahab justified in lying about the Israelites? You better believe it!

Bloodstone, is it found in Richard Baxter's "Directions for the government of the tongue?"

Michael Phillips Sermon on Puritan Richard Baxter,

A True Puritan concerning Lying and Man's Justification of it


This video was PERFEFCT for the times in which we live where lying is considered by some professing Christianity to be a necessary evil. We have truly forgotten our roots. After reading most of Philly's posts I was struck by how often Christians lie to themselves, compared with how often the Bible speaks of our dishonesty, deceit and lies. I think God is trying to tell us something and I am struck by how easily it is for some to convince themselves that they are not the ones who fall into this snare of the Devil.

Still in the fight!

Proverbs 29:12
"If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked."

Psalms 101:7
"He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight."

Proverbs 20:17
"Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel."

God Bless those who strive to bring forth the truth over those who practice deceit. The true conservative hates lies because they have God's spirit in them.

Loved the video Philly. Reformed Theology at its best. We should have more of that. Uncompromising, Biblical, Conservative and Intelligent. Lies are always anti-Christian. There are no exceptions.

Have you still not come to grips with what Christians have told you again and again? We don't care what authors say. We care what the Bible says. If you want to blindly follow your leader, join the Roman Catholic Church. We don't do that here.

The sermon was about lies. Any number of lies, which the theologian clearly listed. Are you feeling guilty or do you just want to excuse lies?

I have also heard it taught by multiple Reformed Pastors that Lying in certain instances is not sin. They also brought up Rahab the Harlot. Is this true?
