A false statement made deliberately
A situation based on deception or a false impression
To say something that is not true in a conscious effort to deceive somebody
After having experience with a compulsive/pathological liar for 8 years, pin-pointing their efforts becomes almost predictable; unless you are a liar yourself.
The following outline some of their behavior.
First and foremost, the liar is a con artist. Sweeping people off their feet is the beginning of a walk down “swindler’s lane.” Snagging anyone who will take their bait, their sick game is repeated over and over as their selfish needs arise. It is all about them. Putting on a good show until getting caught makes them “masters of disguise” because deception has subtle beginnings.
Once they are caught lying, they immediately deny it, twist it, cover it, shove it out of the way.
A continued pattern, lies pile up until they forget what they lied about to begin with.
Hostility, arrogance and anger at the innocent party is a daily event considering the liar is determined to prove they never lied. If you are the object of the lying party, you will be subjected to every possible ridiculous explanation not to mention accusations and threats to do bodily harm. And if that doesn’t work, the liar will continue with mental and emotional abuse in an effort to make it look as if they are innocent and you are not. In other words, “how dare you call me a liar?”
In their mind, they really don’t believe they are the one lying; it is everyone else, whoever is available but mostly those they hate. Getting caught gives them permission (they think) to punish those for catching them.
Pathetic as it sounds, liars dish out what they can’t take. Bullies.
THERE IS NO POINT ARGUING WITH A LIAR. They love to argue and talk, talk, talk. Repeating themselves over and over telling the same lies is a given. If you ask them to stop they will lie and tell you they aren’t doing that.
Unfortunately there are many different kinds of liars. The two specifically here are:
Compulsive: Habitual because it makes them feel better. They are uncomfortable telling the truth.
Pathological: Manipulate to get their way; have no regard or respect for anyone else’s feelings. Charm and charisma are the weapons of choice due to their self-centeredness. Their goal is to always get what they want no matter what.
Once you have had daily experience with a pathological liar, the characteristics are noticeable. As they speak, act or behave their motives become clear. Their facial expressions, body language and movements extract a string of arrogant, condescending and haughtiness that seem to go along with the lies.
Therapeutically, compulsive and/or pathological liars suffer from a variety of negative symptoms from insecurity and fear to a demand for personal attention. Liars often don’t live in reality beginning each day with a new lie.
Trust is lost causing relationships to deteriorate leaving the liar alone, anxious and possibly go into depression. One who lies consistently disrespects those it lies to.
This is clearly stated in Proverbs 26: 28 “A lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin.”
My past experience with this personality, very closely resembles that of President Obama and many of those in his administration. Rationalizing the reasons why anyone lives this way makes no difference. They need help but mostly they need Jesus.
Instability is a true reflection of the decisions and choices being made from the White House. Moral values have been lost in political correctness. Egotistical greed has taken over the hearts of those who have been elected.
Please pray with me for this President, his family and our leaders that God will turn their hearts in repentance to him.
Please pray for this nation that people will seek Jesus to open their eyes from the blindness that has covered the truth.
Oh, how we are loved.
