It takes more energy to lie

The Temple University School of Medicine has found that lying takes more brain energy than telling the truth. It conducted an experiment where participants were divided into two groups. The first group had to shoot a toy gun and then say they didn’t do it, and the second group watch what happened and then tell the truth. MRIs showed that the liars activated seven areas of the brain in their response whereas the truth-tellers activated only four. The conclusion: it takes more brain energy to lie than to tell the truth. But what does God think about it? Well, the Bible says: ‘There are six things the Lord hates: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that kill the innocent, a heart that plots evil, feet that race to do wrong, and a false witness who pours out lies.’ What we say reveals what we are.
