#ec1dot24 - Foolish Things and Telling Lies to Grandmother
Telling lies to Grandmother. Telling lies to yourself.
We teach our children not to lie and hate it when we are lied to. Lying is a destructive force of nature - more powerful than we care to admit. But two questions come to the surface - Is it ever ok to lie? and What is the biggest lie that you’ve told yourself. It’s a Nazi’s and Jews, insecure dudes, and the wisdom of a six-year-old. It's no little white lie - it’s this week’s episode of Another Empty Conversation.
The time has arrived for Another Empty Conversation - a show that lets you eavesdrop on a conversation about faith and following Jesus. We talk about our faith so you can talk about yours.
Empty Conversation episode #1dot24 and the second episode in our series discussing Foolish Things and what happens when you ignore wise advice.
This was a tough episode for the EC crew as we confront some unpleasant feelings. We asked ourselves the question “What is the biggest lie that we tell ourselves?” and we do our best to answer them.
Why do we ask ourselves such hard questions? Why do we publicly share our vulnerabilities in the exploration of faith and following Jesus? Because we want you to be encouraged to do the same. We talk about our faith so you know you are not alone when you talk about yours. We share our doubts, fears, beliefs and opinions to sharpen your thinking and to have our own thinking sharpened by you who listens to us.
We hope you are never afraid to ask us a question or state your own opinion - in fact, we have provided plenty of space for you to do so. Like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter and Tumblr. Send us an email or comment on SoundCloud. Whatever fits your own personality and style. We would absolutely love to hear from you.
Lying is destructive, and I think the truth is always the best option.
It is tempting to see lying as a way of avoiding pain and suffering, but it is merely a delay of the inevitable. This is especially true of the lies that we tell ourselves. They cripple us and any relationships that we try to have. Choose truth - even if it hurts.
