Never consent to a lie

From the January 1992 issue of The Christian Science Journal

We know that a lie is the opposite of truth and that truth is that which is actual. But are we aware of the necessity of determining constantly within our own consciousness what is true and what is a lie in order to live a truly Christian life? Are we aware of the spiritual power we exercise when we distinguish lies from the truth and refuse to agree with lies? Are we aware of the Christian necessity never to consent to a lie? The demand upon every Christian is to deal with his own character and to grow daily in Christian grace and living.
