Liars Go To Hell

Wo unto the liar, for he shall be thrust down to hell - 2 Nephi 9:34

If you haven't guessed, I hate liars. When I was three years old and got in trouble for lying to my parents about jumping on the neighbors' trampoline, I made a commitment to never lie. I even feel guilt when I'm wrong about something, because I feel like I perpetuated an untruth! (I really should separate the whole "wrong" concept from "lie" concept.) Anyway, since I try to live a truthful life it frustrates me to no end when I talk to people who don't. I can be too trusting, and when I am lied to I get hurt and upset. What's the point of lying anyway? Impress someone? Hide a problem or fault? Revenge? Come on. The truth always gets out and you look like an idiot. And if you were wondering, yes, I never win at B.S. or poker.
