Besides, not only does God punish liars but he would also prevent them from entering his kingdom, my father always quoted whenever any of us was caught in a lie. For the sake of fun, – in my case to play soccer – we were willing to suffer a little bit of punishment from God for lying, but what really scared the hell out of me and brought me in line with the virtue (of always telling the truth) was to be liken to the devil in the eyes of God. No way would I want God to look at me and treat me like the devil. Who would like to be the devil in the eyes of God?
No, not me!
