What is the weakness of telling the truth? One weakness of telling the truth is that it is the truth, not a lie. And because people tend to lie quite freely they disbelieve the truth yet believe lies! Because people who lie don’t care whether or not they tell the truth they can lie about you.
All this may make it seem that I’m advocating becoming a liar but what I really want to learn to do is be as harmless as a dove and as subtle as a serpent as the bible recommends. Why would the bible make a recommendation that we become as subtle as a serpent (often seen as an avatar for evil)?
