      People lie because of self deficiency,lack of integrity and enjoyment of falsehood.Why do you think the entertainment and sports industry thrive? There is bloated lifestyle,personal aggrandizement and selfishness.Dont forget politicians who promise to build bridges on dry land,just to win votes.Advertisers tell us what their products are not.We have people falsifying their age to gain a particular favour.The devil ends up as the chief culprit because all of us blame him for our lies,which is another lie.Lack of love for ourselves and our neighbours is a contributing factor to lying.Finally,lack of fear of GOD make people tell lies.

      People lie because they think that they can get away with it; they think that everyone else is stupid , and cannot read between the lines (so to say)

      I will rather start this debate by defining lie, it is a false statement made with delibrate intent to deceive; a falsehood(Online Dictionary.com). People lie to make their way through life or through a system. Lie is part of human and is as old as the garden of Eden. An ordinary man like me and you lie daily jokingly or seriously to missle our way through any system in societies. The banks, the lawyers(pro liars), the pastors, the Imams, the police, the politicians(pro liars), the traders, Wall street, Loan officers, democrats, Republicans, Dictators, Kings and Queens, sports men and women, the Media men and women, Journalists, Christians, Muslims………….and so on and so forth all lie to people on daily basis. Is lying in the DNA of human or acquired from the environment? Do women tell more lies than men? If God forgive all these liars will heaven be over crowded?

      Would scientists eventually stumble on a cure for liars(Liaritis…..will probably be the diagnosis…LOL)? Is lie a disease condition? It is unbelievable the volume of lies pured out there by man daily. Would man continue to blame Satan for all these lies? Poor Satan…………..one day you will probably be proved innocent and let human face the wrath of GOD. The debate is open folks?

      People lie just to cover up their illicit behaviors. However, there are some lies of necessity been referred to as “lie of necessity or conditional lie,” which is never intentional or does no harm, such as getting late to occasion or forget to get one assignment done at a particular time. Whereas, there are some serious lies, which upon committed often worst than volcanic eruption in action. The third category of lie is the one committed by the experts which often or sometimes referred to as “pathological liar.” Upon committed, it would take years if not decades or centuries before the truth of the matter would be known to the world. Either way, none of them is good but for everyone of us to have the fear of the GOD, as an adage says that “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of Wisdom.”
