Lies never work. Ever.  

I don't know how many times I'll have to hear that before I believe it, but it is true. Lies never work.  

First, they are nothing. They can't accomplish anything because they don't describe anything because they are imaginary because they never happened. Lies are fake things. 

Second, this universe wasn't founded to work with lies. It is instead constructed from truths. We call these truths facts. Facts interact with other facts to work. Non-facts don't have this power.  

Third, lies cannot build. They only destroy. Lies affect realities by dismantling them with doubt.

Imagine you are climbing a ladder. Truths are rungs, lies are nothing. If you want to reach the top, you need the truth. Lies will get you nowhere. 

Lies never work. Ever. 

Truthful lips endure forever, but a lying tongue lasts only a moment. | Proverbs 12:19
