The spiritual path: We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ

In God are the perfections of all things, such as good and wisdom and truth: "Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect", Matthew 5:48. God's perfection does not coexist with error, that is, lies and falsehood. That is why those who enter the spiritual path must imitate God: "Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. ´In your anger do not sin´: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.", Ephesians 4:25-26.
When Jesus speaks to us about love in the gospels, Jesus uses the Greek term "Agape", this word means Love of Charity, it is the spiritual love, the love united to the truth. That is why if we want to achieve eternal life, the contemplative life, love must always be united to the grace of God: "Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ", Ephesians 4:15.

The lie is necessary when there are concealment strategies and this comes from concupiscence. Lying is a double-edged sword, it hurts others and ultimately oneself. Those who lack the truth and proceed with deception are under a curse, as the bible warns us with Ananias and Sapphira:
"Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. With his wife's full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles' feet.
Then Peter said, ´Ananias how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? Didn't it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn't the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied just to human beings but to God.´", Acts 5:1-4.
