Christians are often untrustworthy. Corrupt. It is necessary to have contracts. And lawyers and lawsuits. Why are Christians so dishonest?
This is quite troubling, especially for three key reasons:
FIRST, Christians loudly assert they are the “moral” people.
SECOND, Christians follow the One who is TRUTH itself:
John 14:6. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.
This is a violation of the faith itself:
1 John 1:6. If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and don’t tell the truth.

2 Kings 2:7. However, no accounting shall be asked of [the Jewish craftsmen] for the money delivered into their hand, for they deal faithfully.”
Daniel 8:12. The army was given over to it together with the continual burnt offering through disobedience. It cast down truth to the ground, and it did its pleasure and prospered.
John 14:6. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.”
John 18:37. Pilate therefore said to him, “Are you a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this reason I have been born, and for this reason I have come into the world, that I should testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”
2 Peter 1:16. For we did not follow cunningly devised fables, when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
3 John 1:4. I have no greater joy than this: to hear about my children walking in truth.
Revelation 3:14. To the angel of the assembly in Laodicea write: “The Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of God’s creation, says these things:
