Honesty is the best policy.

The consequences of not being honest, especially with yourself, is dire; sometimes too dire for words. 

Sounds drastic, but it really is an understatement.  


What happens when you are not being honest? 

It means that you are running away or hiding from the truth, in other words, being a coward.

Failure to brave the truth, to take responsibility for one's own actions, means failure to assess and correct vulnerabilities in self or the situation.

Would you like real world examples? 

Just take a look at the current pandemic situation when some cover up the truth and what the consequences can be; it can be an eye opener and show the true colors of people's character.

Are you getting an inkling of the sometimes too dire for words consequences yet? 

How about someone's imagined salvation, when in reality the Judgement will likely be damnation? 

How could someone ever receive salvation if not honest with one's own character and actions?  Admit and confess sins, in order to repent and atone?

What would happen to the soul in perpetual sin(s)?

An example Biblically of consequences to people living in perpetual sins are what happened the sinners in the cities of Sodom*and Gomorrah; consumed by fire and brimstone (Does this sound like the Lord forgives everyone everything and let's people sin whenever they want? Or continue to turn cities into Sodom and Gomorrahs?).

Without honesty, how can you ever hope to have goodness of character; integrity and trust?

And hope to ultimately have salvation?

*Refers to the sin of nonconsensual  
  sex, not homosexuality (do not judge 
  people and as it does not impact 
  character or how good or bad 
  person is, it is not anyone else's    business); in the case of Sodom, the 
  heinous sin is the attempted rape 
  of angels.

Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
