The Lie

The lie is a religious fact and that is why in the culminating catalog of sins, we have “and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie” is outside the kingdom, outside the city because whosoever loveth and maketh a lie is he who says, ‘I shall be as god and it is my word that shall determine good and evil or shall abolish good and evil,’ a la Nietzsche. A lie is a religious fact. It denies God’s reality and says I am god. Bow down before my word.
