What is the opposite of honesty?

What is the opposite of honesty? What is the opposite of the truth? The opposite of honesty is dishonesty. And the opposite of the truth is a lie. So what is the difference? The difference is there are only one truth and many untruthful nesses. And lies are bad and wrong.
So what dose the Bible say about lies? It says in Psalms 58:3;The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies. Which means they learn to lie from the get go. And in Psalms 63:11 it says. But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped. In other words lies will be punished. In Psalms 101:7 David states. He that worked deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight. In Proverbs 14:5 Solomon says. A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies. And in Proverbs 14:25 A true witness delivers souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies. He also says in Proverbs 19:5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape. And in Proverbs 19:9, A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish. This is what God said through Isaiah. (Isaiah 9:15) The ancient and honorable, he is the head; and the prophet that teaches lies, he is the tail. (Isaiah 59:4) None called for justice, nor any pleaded for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. This verse says they are mischief and brings forth nothing but sin.
The Bible also has a lot to say about stealing. As in (Deu. 24:7) Moses says If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and makes merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shall put evil away from among you. In (Hos. 4:2) he says. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. In (Ex. 20:15) God says Thou shalt not steal. In (Ex. 22:1) God says the punishment should be for. If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep. Jesus says in (Luke 18:20). Thou knowest the commandments, do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother. (Joh 10:10) The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
(Eph 4:28) Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good that he may have to give to him that needed.
As you can see lying & stealing is a very important topic, but wrong thing to do so next time you think about grabbing that penny of the chest or tell your mom that you did some thing when you know full good and well that you didn’t . remember Your sin will find you out.

What Dose the Bible say about being Trustworthy and not being Trustworthy?

What is being trustworthy? How can you tell the difference? Why should you be trustworthy? Is there any time you should not be trust worthy? What dose the Bible say about being trust worthy?
The idea of being trustworthy does not just mean that you do not lie, but it also means you can be trusted with secrets, and when you are given a job you will do it immediately and with out delay. It also means walking through the store with out sampling the grapes, or grabbing a banana and eating it, or giving it to your child to eat, that is stealing.
So how do I know the difference? First You should look to the bible for help Which says in (Php 4:8) Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Not only think but act and do. This is a good verse to refer to when you are trying to decide whether some thing is trustworthy or not.
Being trustworthy is very important because if you are not trustworthy. People will not invite you over, or let you in to there house. I once herd of some one that would say they just wanted to talk to there mom but when they had talked to there mom they would start getting into stuff they weren’t suposto the owners of the house told them that they from now on had to do business from the door.
Is there any time you should not be trust worthy? No because problems arise when some body is not trustworthy. It is like a car with a faulty part it just doesn’t work right.
What dose the Bible say about being trustworthy or faithfulness?
(Proverbs 31:11) The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. (Proverbs 11:13) A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealed the matter. (Proverbs 13:17) A wicked messenger falleth into mischief: but a faithful ambassador is health. (Proverbs 14:5) A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies. (Proverbs 25:13) As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the soul of his masters. (Proverbs 27:6) Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. (Proverbs 28:20) A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent. (Luke 16:10) He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. (Luke 16:12) And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own? (1 Corinthians 4:2) Moreover it is required in stewards that a man is found faithful.
